Un/Fair Trade
The art of fairness
40% visual arts
25% politics
35% economy

The inequality of the world is constantly growing. In addition to politics, business and trade are above all responsible for this development – “Un/Fair Trade” focuses particularly on these spheres, albeit not as a simple continuation of current criticism of globalisation. Instead, “Un/Fair Trade” takes a constructive look from various angles at fair trade or, more fundamentally, at fair exchange, presenting them as what they, increasingly, really are. The usually merely economic mega-issue around which discourses, alternative business practices and protests revolve, is turned back into a sociological issue.
By adding the projection of fact-based websites to space installations, documentary material and exhibits, “Un/Fair Trade” links art and science in a newsroom scenario of tightly packed images of a different form of commerce.
