Art Space Connect: Opening Talk

Art Space Connect is a 2020 collaboration of Internationale Gesellschaft der Bildenden Künste (IGBK), GeoAIR (Tbilisi) and Centrala Berlin with a focus on independent art initiatives and artist-run spaces in Central and Eastern Europe and the Caucasus.

A discussion on 04 July 2020 at 11.30h CET, focusing on the immediate obstacles that all experienced due to the COVID19-crisis in everyday life, at work, in artistic commentary and exchange with the audience. What can we learn from existing cooperation structures? 

Within the shortest time – facing the specific challenges of the COVID19-crisis – working conditions for independent art initiatives have become very, or even more precarious in many regions of Europe. At the same time, extraordinary organisational competences are developing, that reach a new significance. The forced regional focus experienced by most must be discussed cross-border: How can we learn from each other and how will this all be applied and used for the better of European solidarity when lockdowns are loosened, but borders may still be closed and/or severe economic conditions remain a challenge for European societies? What is the future of (a different kind of) digital audience development and mobility here?
