Where do we turn if we want to work across artistic movements and disciplines? How do we find the yet-undiscovered communities that inhabit the cross-art interface? How do we liberate our artistic practice?
TRAVERS s a multidisciplinary project that aims to pose questions and search for answers. TRAVERS will provide the space to challenge habits, mind-sets and attitudes. It will seek out new processes and artistic languages and cultivate the art of encounter. TRAVERS aims to create a strong society of artists, who will develop and expand the interdisciplinary field during exceptional opportunities for working across art forms and territories.
TRAVERS facilitates a two-year journey into an unexplored cross-artistic landscape. During this journey, TRAVERS will host three collaborative camps in November 2018, May 2019 and June 2020. These residencies will offer an opportunity to found new, egalitarian workspaces, where artists can work and wonder together in a shared artistic laboratory. Beside the three big camps, TRAVERS will moderate smaller encounters, initiated by visiting artists or ensembles, who wish to contribute to the interdisciplinary programme.
The TRAVERS journey is open to all artists and scholars. The journey is free and offers various ways of joining.
