While the tourist gets until the peak with a cable railway, the refugee is forced to leave the homeland and the digital nomad works in an ocean of data. Never before mobility has manifested so diverse like nowadays. The spatial, social and virtual mobility has become a basic principle of a global and connected world. The ones who are mobile are receptive - open for the new, the better. Mobility requires not only physical but also mental flexibility. It breakes social structures and reinforces the perception of already existing and unequal conditions. The art project «Weiter» focuses on this subject. For this exhibition Kunsthalle[n] Toggenburg and Arthur Junior collaborate for the first time. Both organizations have brought art to the people in the region of Toggenburg presenting it outside common exhibition spaces. In the context of «Weiter» selected artists from Switzerland and France work from 9. to 23. September on the topic. They present their artworks at three different temporary meeting points in the region. The works evolve en route and get influenced accordingly to the places, the trails in between and the inhabitants of the region.
