Guidelines for Giants
with CargoCult


CargoCult formed in Berlin in 2012 as an artists’ collective within a governmental employment scheme aimed at integrating unemployed people, it was comprised mainly of women with a background of migration. With temporary collaborators, CargoCult adopts a position that merges the world of art with fashion, mass media and real-social borders and margins. Entirely devoid of leftist escapism and romantic at most in an ironic tradition, CargoCult stimulates discussion within its own global space. CargoCult researches in and around the respective site of action and exhibition, develops site-specific entanglements and explores utopian-visionary practices with the means of art, e.g. with its own encyclopaedia, sections of which are intended to be taken away.
