Disclaimer: 2012ISTHESEASONFORTREASON is a project which represents various collectives in a curated approach to further contextualize and critique the obscure agenda of the Berlin Biennale 7. The views of our collaborators correspond with our shared effort to counter the expressions of exploitative bourgeois culture, while the views of some of the participants might naturally slightly differ. Full documentation of the exhibition will be updated soon.

DAMTP is a shortening of the DAta Miners Travailleurs Psychique. DAMTP has emerged after the events held in opposition to establishment events in Lithuania such as Vilnius: European Capital of Culture in 2009, the year which saw Alytus Art Strike in full swing in the mentioned town in southern Lithuania.
The video is featured in the exhibition 2012ISTHESEASONFORTREASON, which remains open through 13 May. For our opening times please refer to our Program page.
