Apart from the focus on exchange and the naturalness of meeting up, both so painfully lost in the crisis, FREIRAUM was and remains, first and foremost, conceived as a space for conceptual and research work. Even before the crisis, this concept promised that FREIRAUM could well develop into a space of the hour, because it did follow the rigours of production economics less while rather investing in a communal thinking on the times in which we live and how we could really search for ways and strategies, in an interdisciplinary manner and sustainably – employing the means of the arts and sciences. With a new and important solidarity of sharing resources, ideas, strategies and networks. How can we think the local anew, and the global – also through newly-won digital strategy. It puts the principle of care front and centre for a local and global community as well as, last but not least, the existential experience of the continuing importance of live-ness. Although we do experience numerous difficulties – it is, after all, a very difficult time -, it is also a time in which things start moving all of a sudden: Not every grant is coupled to the expectation of delivering a product anymore. Because we do not need a constant stream of new productions. No higher, faster, further, but rather a much more sustainable work and agency. We are the space for this, and we perceive our future mission here, too, even more so in being a voice and providing a safe space for new thoughts, for the untried and the unjudged, also, for the time being. For everything is in motion, the future is uncertain. Therefore, there is also a great opportunity to shape it anew now. We would like to extend an invitation to all artists*, scientists*, activists* and experts* to interfere here, to bewilder us, to make us view, think and experience things differently.
