Conceived by Sluice (London) and produced by Sluice and The Institut für Alles Mögliche (Berlin), Sluice Exchange BERLIN is an international exposition of curatorial programmes in which host spaces in one art community open their doors and share their spaces with kindred spaces visiting from elsewhere. It encourages integrated, collaborative and even spontaneous modes of exhibition and critical evaluation. The expo’s aim has always been to offer an alternative to the dominant organisational paradigms whilst demonstrating a belief in the importance of international engagement for otherwise local projects. Sluice Exchange was borne from previous manifestations in NY under the title Exchange Rates. The expo’s first iteration was in October 2014 in Bushwick, Brooklyn. A second Exchange Rates took place in October 2016, again in Bushwick. Henceforth, Sluice Exchange will travel to a new city every two years. In addition to Sluice Exchange, Sluice produces the Sluice Biennial and the Sluice magazine. For each expo Sluice partners with an organisation from the host city, The Institut für Alles Mögliche is an artistic project that, by using experimental means, sets about questioning, scrutinising and probing the institutionalisation and presentation of contemporary art. These mostly playful experiments deal with interrogations of the ‘art space’, the operatings of the ‘project space’ and ‘exhibiting’ often in an ironic manner. The central concept is to develop spaces of possibility in which exchange and experiences can take place and space for artistic activity can come in to being.
