About


Otherwise festival is initiated and curated by Michaela Büsse (PhD candidate Institute for Experimental Design and Media Cultures) and Benjamin Burger (performer and artistic director of the performance-production Extraleben) as part of their ongoing artistic research project H0 — Institute for Metamorphosis. H0 is short for “Null Hypothesis” and represents the omnipresence, indulgence and constant beaconing of grey goo scenarios in the light of the so-called Anthropocene. Through aesthetic investigations into the full spectrum of contingencies Institute for Metamorphosis aims to unsettle what is taken for granted with specific, speculative, minor and situated counter practices.

The research project is funded through the generous support of Gessnerallee Zurich and City of Zurich.
