With the exhibition Strictly Digital, HARD-CORE pushes several propositions forward that may change the chassis of exhibition-making as we know it. It takes inspiration in the digital trademarks that reshape our environment, borrowing elements from algorithmic structures, databases, global connectivity and the fluidification of authorship as a base for collaborative processes.
Strictly Digital is an exhibition that gathers multiple works created collaboratively through the multi-headed organ HARD-CORE.

Alternativa 2015 entails and develops ideas undertaken for a two-year project Garden of Everyday Errors. The project follows tacit knowledge in the practice of everyday life and in forms we tend to overlook. Our aim is to reverse this perspective. In this project the common form pierces or consumes the artistic one. We try to re-evaluate the ordinary and take it as a source of knowledge that has remained useless since we handed our lives over to the experts. The program of the International Visual Arts Festival Alternativa 2015 is made up of the major exhibit Vernacularity, accompanied by a performative programme, an exhibition of the collective Hard-Core, three book publications and a continuation of Open Garden by Lendlabor which is further enriched by a participatory programme
The project aims to develop new approaches toward the conflicting interests in former Gdańsk Shipyard and to activate the community. The process of building the Open Garden starts with seed planting workshops, engaging the local community and local actors in preparing seedlings of edible plants, which can later be harvested. In the next step, actual installations of the open garden are constructed. This public furniture can play different roles: a table might not just be used as a table, but also as a kitchen, a discussion table or a tennis table. The collectively designed and built installations are not only intended to change the perception of the former shipyard area visually, but also to create a new meeting place and provoke a new way of discussion. This could help foster change by finding new modes of cooperation among all projects fighting to keep the shipyard in the collective memory of the citizens in Gdańsk, as well as to develop one vision for the future by taking action now.
