KARARO has an experimental point of departure. For each exhibition a collective process is started which overcomes the routine of the individual way of working. The work dynamic is simple and unpretentious: There is no thematic determination prior to the exhibition planning. KARARO acts situationally, curiously and reacts to influences by the surroundings, not without humour. The works and the shape of the exhibition are created on site, within a short timespan, and they trace the temperature of the specific place. KARARO develops a levity towards the material, a risen artistic risk by entering the work and exhibition process in a outmost openness. An ink drawing 20 m in length is being created as are small sculptures, timers are set, breaks are taken, the status quo is discussed, the artists are reacting, the pace is accelerated. The personal signature is dissolving, exchange takes the place of the individual gesture. The impetus is the artistic localization in the present. As such the idea of cooperation is meant to be understood as a comment on society and the work can be read as a visual utopia. The  programmatic the process of creation, the poetic and light the result comes along.
