Jointly run by Karen Lohrmann and Stefano de Martino, BAY of MARS is a multimedia testing ground. An experimental landscape garden in its origins with its name borrowed from an undisclosed location, it became a platform for production, for being in the open, experimenting with it. Today, BAY of MARS migrates to likewise and otherwise friendly environments: online, and in the form of exhibitions, periodicals, time-based work, unique items, and occasional events. BAY of MARS is about visual and spatial manifestations and how these change along with planetary uncertainties, happenings, and belief patterns. Together with a broad group of contributors, BAY of MARS set up URBAN STATES for events and talks, CORRESPONDENTS for all printed matter, and most recently, the relational product line XRX for testing, production, and outfitting.
