A word from the artists behind RaumWWW

Many posts are starting with the words "Due to" lately, as numerous exhibitions and events are being cancelled due to the spread of Coronavirus.

And because it's a pity if projects are postponed and efforts left unfulfilled, Raum www hosts a fragmentary archive by showing a selection of works that can't be shown in real life, a growing collection of "what-could-have-happened" or "sadly-postponed" shows

Raum www is a nonprofit project started by Daniel Hahn & Johannes Mundinger, artists with closed and postponed exhibitions.
