Since 1998, a broad-based popular movement under the leadership of Hugo Chávez's Bolivarian government has been effecting sweeping changes in all levels of Venezuelan life and in the field of international power relations. A series of exhibitions at the Berkeley Art Museum curated by Chris Gilbert bring together works by media collectives and worker-produced videos that constitute an incitement and encouragement to this process of people taking power in Venezuela and internationally.

The museum wanted to change the concept of the exhibition cycle from being in solidarity with the workers and revolutionary movements to a "neutral" term. As a consequense Chris Gilbert resigned, read his critique of the current political climate here: www.16beavergroup.org/journalisms.

The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
