"A well-functioning democracy requires a healthy ecosystem of truth-tellers,” said David Lazer, Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Computer and Information Science at Northeastern and co-director of the university’s NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks. “Citizens need to be informed, and we need institutions to communicate what’s happening in the world.

trafo.K is an office based in Vienna working in the fields of art education and critical knowledge production. In our projects we question things perceived as simply given and we intervene in the existing relations and, more often than not, using unexpected strategies.

By doing so, we are concerned with finding out what emerges when different forms of knowledge, artistic strategies and socially relevant themes converge. Our projects are based on collective, emancipatory processes, which allow different perspectives to come into contact and open up new spaces of agency.
