Urban Art Biennale 2015- Volklinger Hutte/ Germany

In Blog by Magdalena Jakubowska / April 19, 2015 / 0 Comments

Arab Urban Art is greatly represented during the Biennale though writings of Tunisian, Moroccan and Egyptian Artists. It is hard to imagine that the pieces are an actual voice of the streets fighting for freedom and the shape of the country young people want to have.

The steal factory, closed from 80-ties, is the noble host of the art that even if nicely framed here- belongs to the dust, gas, fire, dirt and devoted life of many people. Like the factory was. Like the revolution is.

To find the exposition, I have to go down the metal stairs, inside and outside, though the narrow passages and dark rooms. The elegant canvas (most of the pieces presented are framed or painted on  pieces of industrial materials, iron gates, fences, etc) put the question mark if this is the best method of presenting the street art, similarly like cutting medieval altars from churches and exposing them in the museum. Are they now the artefacts and not any more the weapons for freedom of speech?

// Hello artist //
Do you want to …
… find new ideas of co-operating with your audience?
… allocate your time in interesting projects where you can share your creative energy with new audiences?
… afford to focus on projects that you keep on the long term on your ‘to-do’ list?
… meet other artists to network and share your ideas for living with art?
This 4-hour workshop will give you a basic insight into how to change this, the steps you can take and what results you are looking for. It will also ask you the question, WHY am I doing this? For whom, what and why? If you can Define your why, your purpose and your competence; construct your stories; be authentic – then you are in a position to transform your career in the arts.
During the workshop we will use techniques of group coaching: appreciative inquiry, story telling as well as design thinking.
