"I Know The World" is a series of smaller exhibitions and lectures which take place in Sparwasser HQ in the autumn.
As the title indicates Sparwasser HQ has been looking for individuals and projects, who can offer a different and subjective interpretations of the World.

The series started with an evening lecture by Lize Mogel, presenting her 'radical cartography': the world as a world map (and other cartographic experiments). Sparwasser invited curator (Berlin-editor for Art Asia Pacific) Astrid Mania and the artists behind the Australian magazine "Slave" to host an evening; then co-curator Frederikke Hansen presented the documentation of "Rethinking Nordic Colonialism: A Postcolonial Exhibition Project in Five Acts", a big exhibition project, which stretched over 8 countries in the Nordic region and dealt with the effects that Nordic colonialism have on us today, followed by a week where the documentation arcihve was available for the public to navigate in.

NOW, the exhibitions "I Know The World 1-2-3" will look at how artists go abroard, research and encounter a (local) foreign context as a basis for their work. With the project a discusion is raised about the difference and similarities between Being-on-Holiday and Artist-in-Residence. The first exhibition opens 12th of September.

Along with Sparwassers aim to support artists emancipatory initiatives, a representative from Artquest in London, Russell Martin, will talk (Oct 6.) about their forthcoming Artelier project, a website for artists to arrange peer-to-peer temporary international studio swap, providing a social network for real-life visits to art scenes around the world. And finally Artists Talks with the exhibiting artists will offer a possibility to discuss the works made during self-organised travelling as well as instutional artist-in-residences.
