The international acclaimed designer and artist Jerszy Seymour joins forces with Amica Dall of the London based architecture collective Assemble and Emanuele Braga of the artist and activist group Macao in Milan to create a fantastic and humorous world in the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MK&G). Life on Planet Orsimanirana follows the concept of the “Non-Gesamt Gesamtkunstwerk” as a decentralised generative form of world building. International and local collectives, activists, artists, designers and visitors are invited to simply be there, enjoy, take part in discussions and workshops, build ideas, share them as radio programs, jam funky tunes, get comfortable with the struggle and to demand the world we want to live in. With this exhibition the MK&G continues to explore new approaches to opening the museum for participation and discourse. Oscillating between exhibition, radio station, workshop and collective performance space, it is created for those who would like to take a more active role in the museum and use the power of collective imagination to think about new paths and possible answers to the pressing questions of our present. “Life on Planet Orsimanirana is an exhibition as a communal living system and a functioning cooperative physical and online radio station which invites you to immerse yourself in an every-colour primordial mud of molecular consciousness, an archive of autonomous reflections, DIY futurist narratives and a pumping funk of organic processes.”
