ARCHIVES

Take a look at some of our previous work and all-time favorite projects. Apart from frenetically organizing conferences and festivals, or publishing high-quality book compilations and art editions, we’ve been curating exhibitions and group shows throughout the globe, developing great collaborations with outstanding artists to give birth to crazy installations, or producing our own animations, urban games and performance pieces, as well as – once in a while – being invited to offer our services to help companies get their character appeal up-to-date.
