Ongoing Cluster is a network of eight internationally operating contemporary visual art organisations situated in residential areas on the peripheries of major European cities (plus one in Holon, an industrial zone outside of Tel Aviv). Each of these organisations are actively involved in their local contexts, fostering their embeddedness within their surroundings.
