Five artists venture an experiment: At the disused site of the coal mine Gegenort (Saarland, Germany) they enter the shut down pit and resume the drilling. Their aim is to produce the raw material of the 21st century: data and electric impulses - carriers of information. They penetrate the globe vertically in the search for new resources on the opposite side of the earth. According to this principle five boreholes link ten diametrically opposed places on the planet with one another. The Gegenort pit leads to the central interface of the boreholes, namely the centre of the earth. At the exit points of the boreholes the media artists look for the creators of artistic concepts whose ideas and consequently whose energy will be won at Gegenort. Ten selected concepts will be realized at the site of the disused mine by the initiators of the experiment and will be exhibited in ten containers.
