A “marchland” is a medieval term for a borderland beyond direct state control, governed by changing laws and rules. The exhibition On the Far Side of the Marchlands explores the potential of radically new topographies through border regions (marchlands) created by the artists, composed from inextricably linked realms of experience, culture, and materiality. The 3D Additivist Cookbook, conceived and edited by Morehshin Allahyari and Daniel Rourke, is the point of departure for the exhibition, bringing together radical projects by over one hundred artists, activists, and theorists.

The exhibition at the Ernst Schering Foundation includes works by Morehshin Allahyari, Cathrine Disney, Keeley Haftner, Brittany Ransom, and Daniel Rourke who examine 3D printing for its revolutionary potential. Beyond the hype of DIY practices and maker culture, they aim at turning 3D printing into a tool for emancipation and activism. Moreover, it is to help develop speculative, provocative, and peculiar ideas combining art, technology, and science.

As part of ever elusive—30 years of transmediale Daniel Rourke’s and Morehshin Allahyari’s work The 3D Additivist Cookbook will be presented in the special exhibition alien matter (February 2 through March 5, 2017), curated by Inke Arns, at Haus der Kulturen der Welt. The European book launch will take place at Haus der Kulturen der Welt on February 4, 2017, 6pm, with Morehshin Allahyari, Miriam Rasch, Daniel Rourke et. al. Together with Dorothy Santos, Rasheedah Phillips and Luiza Prado & Pedro Oliveira (A Parede), the artists will also participate in the panel “Singularities” on February 5, 2017, noon. The 3D Additivist Cookbook is available at additivism.org/cookbook.

On the Far Side of the Marchlands is a partner exhibition to the special exhibition alien matter, co-financed by Berlin LOTTO Foundation within the scope of ever elusive—30 years of transmediale,supported by the British Council.
