CCCCCOMA e.V. was initiated by Linda Peitz and since the beginning of 2020 its members have been developing mostly nomadic exhibition formats that deal with the (im)possibilities of communication in our time. Based on a discrepancy between global networking and the increasing loneliness of the individual in the urban jungle, CCCCCOMA seeks moments of direct communication and intimate exchange.

To this end, the collective intervenes primarily in places unconnected to art in order to develop and implement projects together with local actors and invited artists. 

The ultimate goal is to bring together people from different fields, to break down fears of contact with contemporary art, and to establish a sustainable dialogue between already existing urban and social structures, artistic positions and the audience. 

For “CCCCCOMA Commercials. I came in here for a special offer" we invite artists to deal with the topics of individual visibility in public space and the impact of advertising and media on our daily interaction. For this purpose, video works will run on advertising displays at five different locations in the city - in late night shops, shop windows or in pedestrian zones. In the short-format clips corresponding to the advertising format, questions about consumer behavior, social utopias and economic interests in urban space, the attempt to include and exclude people or the negotiation of the visibility of (queer) bodies in public space are dealt with, among other things.
