CrossSections_Potentials which took place at Kunsthalle Exnergasse WUK (Werkstätten und Kulturhaus) in Vienna was the first exhibition of the project. CrossSections_Potentials was designed to be a 10 days exhibiton, accompanied with performances, talks, and presentations regarding the on-going research and development process of the participating artists' projects. The exhibition allso gave an insight of the working methadology of the artists through diffrent formats that was experienced and experimented in the exhibiton space.


The CrossSections project is a cross disciplinary research platform focusing on artistic research, dialogues and production. The project reflects on "process" in the form of an open format with the aim to articulate critical reactions to the political, economic, and social disturbances facing us today. The  project aims at discussing and sharing diverse realities, conditions, and strategies in different geographies. By placing the artistic production of artists as the centre of its research and plot, it will be shaped by the cumulative interdisciplinary input and data through meetings, residencies, performative presentations, and publications in the course of a year. Its research process involves different focus groups, institutions and educational bodies engaging with the re-positioning of the perspectives by giving priority to the production. 

In the course of three years (2017-2020), with the participation of 19 artists, some scholars and cultural workers, various meetings, workshops, exhibitions, performances, and talks will be held in three cities: Vienna, HelsinkiTallinn, and Stockholm.
