ABOUT presents quarterly web-based group exhibitions that are accompanied by a rolling blog. Each exhibition originates from the exploration of a word and culminates in a media crossover, in which the editorial and miscellany of artist’ works are what remain visible of the process of production. The aim is to suggest links between various cultural areas, creating a system in which the artworks and their idiosyncratic languages, the blog posts and their trajectories stand for themselves while being connected to a centre.'s mission is to support the production of new works and writing and instigate an exploration of the creative and critical possibilities of the web as language, medium and subject. Its activity spans from web-based exhibitions to related OFFSITE PROJECTS, curatorial collaborations and talks.
