RSS - Event on Fragile Affinities - (Re)strengthening international artistic collaboration - Date : 23/24 November 2017

On the occasion of IGBK's 60th anniversary, the Internationale Gesellschaft der Bildenden Künste in cooperation with Akademie der Künste, organises a symposium on international artistic cooperation. 


Against the background of nationalist movements in many European countries, artists, too, are becoming growingly restricted in their rights to freedom. Alarming developments in Turkey, the increasing erosion of democratic institutions in the EU Member States of Poland and Hungary, and the British vote to exit the EU, cause us to debate the ways in which artists preserve and shape necessary spaces for their activity in times of decreasing social cohesion within Europe.


How do artists position themselves between activist self-instrumentalisation, their ideological exploitation by political regimes or the flight into (inner) exile? Ways and means of strengthening international artistic collaboration as well as maintaining and promoting opportunities for exchange and communication will be discussed


Date : 23 and 24 November 2017

Address : Hanseatenweg 10, 10557 Berlin
