ARCHIVED FUTURES HARVEST
Archived Futures Harvest is a two month exhibition, which has been held at Studio Solipsis in Rabat (Malta). Atelier Johannes Buch has been asked to co-curate and design the exhibition together with Glen Calleja and Giola Cassar.
The exhibition is the outcome of a six month process called Presents of the Future which was led by the Austrian organisation Time's Up within the framework of the cultural programme of the 2017 Maltese Presidency of the Council of the European Union and with the support of Arts Council Malta and the Valletta 2018 Foundation.
It is at once playful and philosophically engaging and is guaranteed to give visitors of all ages more than a few headscratching moments. Entrance is free and the exhibition is open throughout May and June 2017.

ETHNO CINÉMA VÉRITÉ — HIDDEN MUSIC RITUALS AROUND THE WORLD
Vincent Moon travels the world with a backpack and a camera, filming astonishing music and rituals the world rarely sees — from a powerful sufi ritual in Chechnya or Ethiopian sufis chewing khat, to a shamanic ayahuasca journey in Peru. He hopes his films can help people see their own cultures in a new way.
In the retrospective on the past five years (2010-2015) of Vincent Moon‘s filming practice, a selection of about 60 Films are shown in a context of ethnographic film and music. Focused on the documentation of spiritual– and folk–music the exhibition will try to take you on a journey through a variety of sounds and songs from all continents of this world.
The exhibition is part of the masters programme of the exhibition design institute at HS Düsseldorf and produced by Johannes Buch with the kind help of teamvoltron.
ANNA’S WEEK END
Design is no longer a solution but a hypothesis. It’s not a definitive declaration, but a scene, a transitory moment, a container of possibilities, an unstable life-form that evolves over time.
Barbara Radice, Memphis, ed. Rizzoli 1984 (excerpt from the artist’s statement)
This two day exhibition is the culmination of Laêtitia Badaut Haussmann's residency at Blitz, and a 5-day workshop with a group of invited local participants. The workshop is designed to develop furniture for the Blitz space; furniture which is both hybrid and multifunctional.

Artist-in-Residence Giuseppe Fanizza has spent this September at the Artists’ Residency in Għarb – which is managed by Spazju Kreattiv and Valletta 2018 – working on the AZURE WATCH project.
AZURE WATCH was conceived in order to begin a collective, multimedia archive of the Azure Window and the surrounding landscape that will remain available for consultation and the possible future implementation by the Gozitan community.
The artist was assisted in his research by volunteers Mary Attard, Johannes Buch and Andrew Pace, who have also worked on this exhibition at Dwejra Tower.
The exhibition will be hosted by Din l-Art Ħelwa at Dwejra Tower during the month of October and will include audio recordings, films, photographs and exhibits. This initiative is part of the Spazju Kreattiv programme.
