As a society, we are on the brink of countless paradigm shifts; everything seems to be in a state of upheaval, and nothing remains as it was. The term OVER/FLOW reflects a common sensation of being overwhelmed. Be it flows of data, flows of social interaction, flows of power, desire, or simply the wind. Countless stimulations go around and through us. In the spirit of OVER/FLOW, we want to illuminate and discuss existing positions, opinions, and ways of dealing with them.
In the midst of the stream of future and past, we question how we can stand firmly.
