Artists at Risk

Artists at Risk is a platform offering Safe Haven Residencies to artists, curators, and critics who are persecuted and threatened for political reasons. The platform provides art practitioners safe exit and travel from their countries of origin into the residencies, as well as legal assistance. AR develops cooperation-programmes with artist-in-residency centres, art/film/theatre unions, cities and human-rights networks which help provide artists at risk a safe place of temporary relocation. The platform was initiated by the curatorial vehicle Perpetuum Mobile who also create and curate events, conferences, and the “AR Pavilion” in Europe and internationally.  

FLAX – Foreign Local Artistic Xchange: A Network for Cultural Collaboration

FLAX is a network for cultural networking and collaboration, which promotes cultural exchange and cooperation for local and newly arrived cultural workers, artists and institutions inside Germany. We do not exclude any nation, color, legal status (as, for example, a refugee status) or religion. We are open and accessible to everybody. We are supporting and organizing interdisciplinary and intercultural artistic projects. We support artists in developing their individual artistic position or obtaining cultural education in Germany. A strong part of our program is a mentoring program established for newly arrived artists and cultural managers from all different parts of the world. We provide support and, if possible, access to university education, scholarships, residencies, information, proposals, and workshops. Our mission is to bring people from the cultural world in contact to each other. We would like to support you as individual arriving newly to Germany. We will try to accompany you through the complexity of the German Cultural Systems. We believe that a strong network is a chance to develop artistically as an individual and that mixing disciplines and backgrounds are a key to creativity and intercultural competency.
