 Screen City Biennial (SCB) Other Minds looks into the liminal states of consciousness that arise in the symbiotic relationship between the human mind and that of other living and non-living matter—including plants, bacteria, fungi, and technology. The project interrogates and challenges the notion of the human, embracing instead an idea of the more-than-human—a concept that expands personhood to entities beyond our species—by stressing the crucial connections among all living and non-living matter, both on a planetary and a cosmic scale.

SCB transcends the traditional spacetime biennale structure by proposing a multi-location model across several cities, departing in Berlin, spanning an extended exhibition period during 2022-2024. The first chapter of Other Minds took place at an extraordinary site, the Archenhold Observatory in Berlin. At this significant astronomical vantage point, the exhibition brought together the voices of various artists, whose work draws connections across layers of history, spacetimes, worldviews, and speculative narratives for the future. The program presents lens-based and time-based newly commissioned artworks, including performances, activations, artist talks, and online events.

The next chapter as a travelling biennial with satellite events, will be extended to several locations and cities, departing in Oslo. It will continue the path looking at the medium of the moving image in an expanded fashion and occupying unconventional public spaces for the arts.

Stay tuned for more information about the next journey!
