The project is a rolling curatorial platform for performance practices in contemporary visual arts. It will be developed in close connection to the specific qualities and characteristics of the cities and countries involved.
The aim is to explore and generate new ideas of connections through cultural difference. It is our belief that only through proudly expressing our differences to each other that we can move beyond easy tolerance.
The project takes the robust practices of internationally acclaimed artists as the basis for its investigation into the possibilities of imagining new, transformative communities.
