Emergency Room is a format but also a existing launch pad for artists burning with desire to engage in the current debate. It is an exhibition space where artists comment on the emergencies today , today the present day , today before it is too late.
Artists are thermometers for dysfunctions of society. They are the visual experts. But in order to exhibit, an artist has to wait months or years in order to negotiate with art institutions, find funding and collaborators. This limits the artist urging to respond to the contemporary and leaves the art work as delayed comments on yesterday's world.
Through Emergency Room, artists can react every day. They scan the emergencies of today and respond to their discoveries of conflicts and discrepancies. By being a constantly changing exhibition space commenting on current events Emergency Room creates a hotline to the public and to the mass media. Everyday there will be new reactions
