The exhibition »global aCtIVISm« is dedicated to the field of artistic form of expression as politically inspired by actions, demonstrations and performances in the public sphere, which draw attention to socio-political grievances and call for changes to existing conditions. By means of objects, photographic, cinematographic, videographic and mass medial documents, the exhibition presents global activism as the first novel art form of the 21st century.

global aCtIVISm serves as prelude to the exhibition marathon »GLOBALE«, scheduled to be held on the occasion of the 300-year anniversary of the founding of the city of Karlsruhe 2015.
