How can we know the the complexity of real? Is a car crash simply complicated event or a complex one, can we predict the trajectories of future events? Can building a simple model help us understand the complex or does it only turn our gaze to understandable but clearly false?

Lou Cantor is a Berlin-based artist collective founded in 2011, whose main scope of interest is grounded in intersubjectivity and interpersonal communication. Lou Cantor’s practice explores the polysemic minefield of contemporary communication, where medium, message, and meaning constantly fold back into each other. Previous exhibitions include The Policeman’s Beard is Half Constructed, Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn; Spiritual Reality, Decad, Berlin; Fellow Travelers, apexart, NY; Cyborg Dreams, Pitt St, NY; The Labour of Watching, leto gallery, Warsaw and OSLO10, Basel; Language and Misunderstanding, CUNY, NY; Epistemic Excess, Artists Space, New York; 7th Berlin Biennale and New National Art, Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw. Based on the collectives actual field of research they regularly release a collection of essays and artists’ entries.
