The collaborative project »Transparencies« examines the cultural facets and atmospheres of this (non-)transparency. In two exhibitions in Bielefeld and Nuremberg the project is dedicated to developments in »transparent society,« and asks how these are reflected in current work by contemporary artists. Coinciding with the exhibition, the international symposium deepens investigations into the current paradigm of transparency and the ambivalence of the term. Invited speakers from the disciplines of design, literature and cultural studies situate the phenomenon of »transparency« in cultural history, question it in relation to artistic practice and reflect on it in the charged area between individual and society.
