LUFT – international networking event to highlight and connect the European artist-run art scene takes place Saturday, 10th and Sunday, 11th of September 1– 5 pm at KUNSTPUNKT, Schlegelstr. 6, 10115 Berlin
Eighteen initiatives from The Hague, Limerick, Stockholm, Riga, Copenhagen, Frankfurt and Berlin present their spaces and organisations, as well as selected art works at their stands in order to show their activities and start new collaborations.
ARNE (Artist-Run Network Europe) aims to strengthen the self-organised artist-run sector in Europe with a focus on local and international cooperation, and to create a simple information framework for art professionals and art students, namely through a collaborative online platform, the Artist-Run Resource Centre (ARRC).
We want to rise the visibility of artist initiatives in the professional art world and enhance the accessibility of the independent scene for the broad society. In a multi-layered format, the project bridges the gap between European cultures, professions and artists at different stages of their careers. It promotes international collaboration and mutual respect, and emphasises the importance of the artist-run movement with their freedom for experimental and innovative ideas. Read More
