Kunsthochschule Kassel - The New Media class is proud to present new
works at, Berlin. The pieces range from installation,
performance, screen-based and interactive works to video and film. 'Make
it fit' refers to the restrictive cabin baggage rules of budget
airlines, including their painfully meticulous control mechanisms. A
lifestyle-conscious, hyper-mobile generation rattling trolleys along
pavements has become the hallmark of gentrified neighborhoods in
travel-hyped European capitals.

Kassel's New Media students are using the classic travel suitcase as a
constraint and metaphorical context for art production to meet the
challenge of setting up a group show in Berlin in less than one day.
Each work must fit into a suitcase to be transported, and setup time has
to be either instant or not more than two hours. Hyper-mobile art also
facilitates instant pop-up micro shows and performances in trains, in
stations, and in other public spaces.

Curatorial processes often see artists selected on the basis of
friendship networks or name dropping rather than actual works. How far
can an artwork be ‘bent’ to make it fit an art show? An art market open
secret is that paintings and sculpture that are small enough to fit in
an ‘Upper Westside’ elevator have a better chance of being sold. Does it
