Since 1989 Dr. phil. Serafine Lindemann, curator and initiator of the art platform artcircolo, is creating projects in international and experimental art, dialogue and exhibition programs, predominantly focusing on the issues water, ressources, cultural identities and social processes of change.

A key aspect of her work is the development of concepts and intercultural projects involving experts from art and culture, science and environment, technology and economy- realised for instance in China, Eritrea, Russia, Cuba and Europe.

Excellent references are the cultural festival Im Zentrum in the Altvater region (CZ) and the event series overtures, presented at many important international art festivals like the Ars Electronica in Linz (AT), Transmediale in Berlin (DE), the Venice (IT) and Havana (CU) biennials.

In 2009 Serafine Lindemann founded the association pilotraum01 together with experts in technology and communication, industrial design and glacier research, art and biology. She is co-responsible for the association’s arts and cultural programme.


Was hören wir wenn es still ist
Handeln abseits des Mainstreams.
What we hear when it it is quiet.
Off-mainstream acting.
