PSWAR's new project Endless Installation: A Ghost Story For Adults started out with a research into questions of architecture and the narrative of exhibition making, as well as definitions of authorship. Endless Installation: A Ghost Story For Adults is a spatial confrontation between the work of three figures who have become particularly inspirational for this research: architect Frederick Kiesler (1890-1965), art historian Aby Warburg (1866-1929), and artist Meir Agassi (1947-98).

Endless Installation: A Ghost Story For Adults creates a non-linear dialogue with exhibition visitors unfolding around the work of these remarkable individuals, becoming a fictional meeting point for their individual 'universes'. This fictional montage allows to define junctures of their ideas as well as offering new readings on their individual practices.

Public Space With a Roof is an initiative by artists Tamuna Chabashvili, Adi Hollander and theoretician Vesna Madzoski. Their activities go beyond the usual notions of artists-as-social-activists, artists-as-producers, and artists-as-curators, blurring the borders between many roles assumed to be taken by the present-day artists. Their projects are based on research and include several levels including the possibility to use existing artworks as ready-mades, questioning of the existing exhibition formats, creating platforms for intimate and individual experience of the artworks and changing perception of the space.
