We’re delighted to announce that RANDOM INTERNATIONAL will be taking park to DYSFUNCTIONAL, a group exhibition organised by Carpenters Workshop Gallery taking place at the Galleria Ca’d’Oro in Venice during the Venice Biennale 2019.
We’ll be presenting one of our most iconic works in the beautiful setting of the Ca'd'Oro from 8th May - 24th November.
DYSFUNCTIONAL seeks to forget function whilst celebrating the power of artistic expression. The idea of dysfunction, defined as ‘the disruption of normal social relations’, invites visitors to rethink the conventional relationship between form and function, art and design, the historical and the modern.
Hannes and Flo join Charmian Griffin, Head of Digital at Artangel to discuss the limitations and opportunities of both immersive and digital art.The Panel will be chaired by Jessica Rutterford, Adult Learning Programmer at the Royal Academy of Arts,

On Saturday 10th November, RANDOM INTERNATIONAL will take part in The Phillips Collection’s annual International Forum, exploring the theme NATURE + ART + CLIMATE + CHANGE.
The International Forum is rooted in The Phillips Collection’s aim to contribute to the global conversation through the language of modern and contemporary art. A joint presentation with the University of Maryland, this year’s dialogue will bring together leaders across disciplines to discuss the great implications and meaning of "Nature + Art + Climate + Change."
Hannes and Flo will present ideas and works, before entering into a discussion with Dr. Hester Baer (Associate Professor and Head of the German Department, UMD). Other participants include the artist Meg Webster and Henry Elkus (CEO of Helena), who will be in discussion with Dr. Robert Orr (Dean of the School of Public Policy UMD and former Assistant Secretary-General for Policy Planning, United Nations). Conversations will explore shared perspectives on the increasingly significant role artists are playing in discourse about the environment today.

This solo exhibition, the studio’s first in Asia, considers ideas of simulation, decision-making, and automation in an immediate and sensory way. Encompassing both new work and more established pieces, the exhibition marks the return of Rain Room (2012) to the Yuz Museum, following its debut in Asia in 2015. This is the first time that Rain Room will be shown alongside other works by Random International. Like Rain Room, each of the works generates its own environment, to which visitors are invited to respond on their own terms. Everything & Nothing invites visitors to re-experience and re-examine the physical spaces that represent our relationship with technology. These spaces relate to both lived and speculative perceptions of an increasingly automated environment, and how natural phenomena and human behaviour can shape the world.
8 - 9 February 2018
