The wandering exhibition On Mobility is based on the collaboration of four contemporary institutions in Europe. With the exhibition of a mutating group of artists, the project sets out to investigate the dynamics of and the reasons for an increasing global mobility, both as a possibility for the privileged (e.g. internationally working artists) and as a necessity for people who do not move by their own choice.

Within their works artists deal with migration, with questions of cultural translation or even with the impossibility of leaving ones circumstances behind; they work with situations, with documentary forms, with communities, reflect on the media and on economic mechanisms. While articulating critical views on a global situation, they also seek an alternative with sometimes very personal, playful or poetic approaches.

Budapest
This is the forth stop in the relay-exhibition On Mobility, which will be on display in three institutions in Budapest: Trafó Gallery/ Stúdió Gallery/Menü Pont, Kunsthalle, Budapest.

From De Appel in Amsterdam, the project travelled to BüroFriedrich in Berlin. After Vilnius it will move to Budapest before returning to Amsterdam. Each venue will exhibit a selection of works from the previous incarnations and add four new participants. Upon returning to Amsterdam, the show will consist of a completely different group of artists chosen by the partner institutions.
