The Christopher Kulendran Thomas - Another World exhibition takes the failed revolutionary struggle for an independent Tamil homeland in northeastern Sri Lanka as a starting point to explore alternative approaches to technology.

In the immersive film installation, pop culture and politics merge with archival imagery and computer-generated avatars to transform KW's entire second floor into an architectural hallucination across five monolithic screens and a projection.

A new variation from the 2019 video work Being Human (in collaboration with Annika Kuhlmann) divides the second floor. The work takes visitors* on an elliptical journey through contemporary Sri Lanka, from the aftermath of the civil war to the Colombo Art Biennale, which was immediately launched when the war ended. The film combines actual lived experience with algorithmically designed characters, including prominent guests at the Colombo Art Biennale and Kulendran Thomas' uncle, who founded a center for human rights in Tamil Eelam.

Christopher Kulendran Thomas - Another World was produced in collaboration with the Institute of Contemporary Art, London, Kunsthalle Zürich and KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin.
