visual artists | diverse conditions – Workshops in Autumn 2023

The concept of diversity is becoming increasingly relevant in democratic and pluralistic societies. The diversity of lifestyles, identities and cultures is not yet reflected in all areas of a society or in its institutional structures.

Against this background, the IGBK in 2023 examines the conditions of artistic work in Europe from the perspective of diversity. What impact do characteristics such as age, gender, origin/language and geographical location (or place of residence) have on the work of visual artists in addition to country-specific cultural policy, art policy and socio-political conditions? To what extent is the presence or absence of diversity structures in institutions, for example, noticeable in the work of artists?

Workshops in partnership with IAA Europe

The first session on 25 October 2023 focusses on ‘Social Security and Pensions’ for visual artists in Europe against the background of diversity aspects. Join us for the digital workshop as part of the project visual artists | diverse conditions in 2023.

Via Zoom on 25 October 2023 6.00-8.00pm CEST. Workshop takes place in English and in partnership with IAA Europe.

Register here until 24 October 2023.

More workshops to take place on 08 November (focus ‘Visual Artists Associations and Structures’) and on 15 November 2023 (focus ‘Funding and Working Spaces’).
