The Exploratorium, which was originally intended to use the 17th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia as a learning environment, has been transformed into an online research program, which can be followed at openresearch.amsterdam. Here, artists, designers, researchers and activists from different parts of the world collaborate, in their own thematic research projects, based on different topics and are called ‘tracks’. Within (and between) the tracks, new working methods are developed that make connections between fields such as social and physical sciences, art, design, architecture, and even more than human life worlds. The Exploratorium is co-curated by We are here Venice. New values for survival are explored with and for Venice. The results of these special collaborations ultimately will form the second Cahier, partly designed by the participants themselves.
