“ We are here to entice and intrigue. We come at each project in different ways, but we try to be a little more on the rebellious side. We don't have rules and that gives us the freedom to explore and arrive at interesting concepts (because following rules never brought anything exciting). We make sure to give the best strategies and creative direction with added business value to our clients.

Each project is unique and we don't replicate (we have your brand at heart).

We have an honest approach and always listen to our clients wishes. Together we find solutions that will honor your brand and business objectives (but we do challenge).

If you are intrigued and want to hear more or hire us, give us a call. We are excited to hear from you. Let’s start exploring new ideas.  “ Claudia Emde, Founder.

Prologue:


“Here or There?”


Where are We when not Here, right now in this moment reading this?

Is it a matter for you where you live?

Do you live Here or There? 

What is the difference between being Here or There or somewhere else?

Are you happier Here or There?

Is the level of happiness measured better Here or There?


I guess nowhere!

(Author: R.de Larrea)

 

The logistically challenging exhibition stands under the sign of possibilities - bringing together two different artistic environments from two different places. The mediation of impressions, such as community, beyond cultural and geographical borders is the focus of the artistic clash. The exhibition stands in contrast to the tendency of demarcation prevailing in current events. 

This exciting power struggle between stimulus and emotions grows in moments of closeness. Only in such moments of proximity can art tell its story of a better life; only then awakens the sense of possibilities which our present might just be longing. "It is simply not a political act for a work of art to say how the world would be better," writes philosopher Christoph Menke.
