Workers are leaving the Googleplex, the racist English Defence League (EDL) is reinterpreted as "English Disco Lovers" and a worm reports from his life as right-wing click bait. Or: While Lenin is getting a traditional Thai massage, a superheroine is clearing a road in the wild North Caucasus, and an artificial intelligence is flying over snow-covered mountains. These are six of a total of 25 stories about clowns, animals, the New Right, mass and isolation, which are told in the exhibition 25 of 78.

25 of 78 is a selection from the HMKV Video of the Month series. Since March 2014, this series has been presenting current video works by international artists in monthly rotation. Works by artists from Lithuania, Norway, France, the Netherlands, the USA, Serbia, the Czech Republic, Great Britain, Iran, Russia, Germany, Singapore and Tajikistan are presented and voices from Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin, London, Oslo, Dushanbe, New York, Moscow, Dortmund and Wuppertal are featured.
