grenzen überwinden

Wir finden, dass die Welt weniger Grenzen braucht! Kunst vermag viele Grenzen zu sprengen, aber manchmal braucht es auch die passenden Rahmenbedingungen. Daher soll flausen+global einen intensiven Arbeitsaustausch über Ländergrenzen hinweg etablieren.

voneinander lernen

Künstler:innen aus unterschiedlichen Ländern forschen zusammen in einer Residenz, und können sich durch einen ergebnisoffenen Prozess über ihre unterschiedlichen Perspektiven und Arbeitsweisen austauschen.

demokratie fördern

Kunst und Kultur sind elementare gesellschaftliche Impulsgeber. Wir glauben, dass Gesellschaften immer wieder herausgefordert werden müssen, um offen zu bleiben und sich weiter zu entwickeln.

In der aktuellen geopolitischen Lage ist es wichtiger denn je, Künstler:innen miteinander zu vernetzen und ihre Stimmen laut werden zu lassen.
