Version Room (The Dynamic Archive 2) is a program that will take place on a monthly basis in the exhibition space circa 106 where The Dynamic Archive will exhibit its components and versions. In line with the context of Circa 106, The Dynamic Archive sets out to discuss, probe, and develop the questions of collaborative work and sharing. Artists and designers provide The Dynamic Archive with their working methods and processes (components), in order to make these resources available online to others for use and further development. These working methods and processes will be presented beyond their digital environment in Circa 106.

The Office of Idleness
Guida Ribeiro and Leon Lothschütz's version room residency. From the end of May until the beginning of June 2021, Circa 106 hosted a 5 days artistic residency, where Guida Ribeiro and Leon Lothschütz turned the gallery space into The Office of Idleness.

Samples After Swine
Lena Heins and Marijana Radović's version room residency. In the joint installation, shiny materials, and collected audiovisual impressions come together, telling a story about the use of pearls, both real/ fake, and the special shape of samples, and inevitably their cross-over and connecting element: the unique and the universal. Two (or one) perspective(s).

Untie - Unite
04. - 12.12.2020
Lucas Odahara + Elburuz Fidan. Each of the artists will have 4 days to work in the space. Lucas and Elburuz will reference their respective component and version, available now online in The Dynamic Archive, exploring the possibilities in a gallery space. Their collaboration will not happen in person but in response to what they find in space.

COVID-19 Update

Due to the Covid-19 virus all events scheduled in April are postponed and this includes all the exhibition planned in the space Circa 106. At the moment we plan for them to take place in June or July.

We would like to, however, have a response to this situation, as the exhibition space Circa 106 as well as The Dynamic Archive with the new Version Room have their focus on collaborative art. The current circumstances are directly influencing the collaborative dynamic, making it hard to meet, socialise and work together. Having in mind the limited possibilities, the exhibitors will reference their respective topics or the current situation by publishing their response online at the time when the openings where supposed to take place. This could be a talk, a written, video or image exchange.

The first response of the exhibition of the Version Room in Circa106 from Guida Ribeiro and Leon Lothschütz will be published on Friday 20.3. at 19h here: Virtual Take on Physical Labour

It will be a videopodcast: “ A virtual take on physical Labor“. (conversation between Guida Ribeiro, Leon Lothschütz, Aria Farajnezhad, Victor Artiga Rodriguez and Irena Kukric).

Tune in!

The 2nd response* to the Version Room events in the exhibition space Circa 106 is from Lena Heins and Marijana Radović. It will be published on Thursday 2.4. at 19h here.

Lena Heins and Marijana Radović will show their digital cross-media Chat “Samples before Swine”.


Aufgrund des Covid-19-Virus werden alle im April geplanten Veranstaltungen verschoben, einschließlich der geplanten Ausstellung im Raum Circa 106. Im Moment planen wir sie für Juni.

Wir möchten jedoch auf diese Situation mit einer response reagieren, da sowohl der Ausstellungsraum Circa 106 als auch The Dynamic Archive auf Zusammenarbeit ausgerichtet sind und die aktuellen Umstände beeinflussen die Dynamik der Zusammenarbeit direkt und machen es schwierig, sich auszutauschen, Kontakte zu knüpfen und zusammenzuarbeiten. In Anbetracht dieser begrenzten Möglichkeiten werden die Aussteller_innen auf ihre jeweiligen Themen unter Berücksichtigung der aktuelle Situation verweisen, indem sie ihre Response zum Zeitpunkt der geplanten Eröffnung online veröffentlichen. Die Response kann ein Vortrag, ein schriftliche Korrespondenz, ein Video- oder Bildaustausch sein.

Die erste Response von der Ausstellung des Version Rooms im Circa 106 von Guida reibeiro und Leon Lothschütz wird am 20.3. um 19 Uhr auf der Website von Circa 106 veröffentlicht: Virtual Take on Physical Labour

Ein Videopodcast: „A virtual take on physical Labor“. Gespräch zwischen Guida rebeiro, Leon Lothschütz, Aria Farajnezhad, Victor Artiga Rodriguez und Irena Kukric.
