Art and Research in Collaboration. An Experiment.
Andrea Heister, Samuli Schielke & Daniela Swarowsky (Eds.)
Can we talk about Europe without being Eurocentric? How can we meet on equal footing in an unequal world? These were questions that emerged from a research project and an experiment involving researchers from the Zentrum Moderner Orient, Berlin, and artists from the participating countries working together toward a final exhibition. The participants set out on a journey to “Search for Europe.” With an eye on creativity, political ideologies and migration and with a range of locations from West Africa, the Middle East, and Western Europe to Southeast Africa and the Balkans, the participants endeavored to understand how people remember the past, strive for a better future, or think about alternatives in an entangled world. The final culmination is the publication, in which the researchers, artists and guest authors reflect on the process through essays, artwork and documentary imagery.
