The TRANSCULTURAL ART LAB is a creative experiment, an artistic research laboratory dealing with national identities, questioning cultural heritage and daring to look into our common future. We invite fifty ambitious young creatives, aged between 18 and 27, to the German Island of Juist. You should be from Azerbaijan, Georgia, Germany, or from the regions of Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Under the broad theme of “Design your Utopia”, six artistic workshops will explore tensions between collective responsibilities and individual visions of the future in national and international contexts. The collaborative artwork provides a starting point for dialogue and an open space for divergent thinking. Each workshop is facilitated by a professional artist. The workshops are as follows: Installation Art, Music, Performance Art, Editorial Design, Video Art, Photography.
The emerging art pieces are to be shown in a public exhibition on the island at the conclusion of the Lab – and will then be curated to form a show that will travel to Baku, Berlin, Tbilisi. Additionally, documentation of the project will be published in an online publication. The TRANSCULTURAL ART LAB is organised by a team of international artists, with financial support from the German Federal Foreign Office, the European Union and the Ministry of Social Affairs for Lower Saxony. It aims to follow up last year’s successful contribution to cross-cultural dialogue.
