The first version of ’2step’ was developed in 2001 by Petra Bungert (D/B) in co-operation with Robert Preece Projects (USA/NL) and subsequently realized in 2002 at CCNOA center for contemporary non-objective art, Brussels (B). It featured over 40 experimental audio and video works by 37 international artists who primarily work in other media, such as painting, sculpture, installation art, design and architecture. The revised and expanded version of ’2step’ at the Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo (N) and the UH Galleries, University of Hertfordshire (UK) presents in addition to experimental audio and video works also works on paper, photographs, multiples and editions by some 47 artists from around the globe. As the artists often started their professional career in other disciplines or investigate other artistic media then the one they are primarily working in, ’2step’ frames these explorations - a "two-step" into another medium - highlighting visually and acoustically challenging works related to the individual artist’s practice while providing the viewer with a deeper insight into the artists’ process of work and their diverse resources of inspiration.
