“Contingency Plan” was curated by Pablo Caligaris as part of his residency at studio das weisse haus in 2017. The exhibtion tried to propose a dialogue between different artistic practicies and proposes collaboration as a way to deal with future emergencies.

In a context of social struggles, the growth of the art residencies in the last years is not a matter of chance. They have an important role not only as organizations providing the opportunity for artists to connect, research and experiment in different contexts, but also to promote collaboration as a response to individualism and intolerance.

While working with the local artists of studio das weisse haus many links have appeared. With different strategies, these artists respond and open new questions about a common concern: how to deal with everyday reality.
