VIOLENT MEMORIES - TRANSFORMATION AND TRAUMA
How do artists and writers respond?
The Sylt Foundation initiated and runs an new long term exchange programme. Artists, writers, composers and curators will be part of the TRANSFORMATION AND IDENTITY project that negotiates our different approaches to reflect on our "burden of history" through the means of art. The Sylt Foundation is inviting artists from seven countries into this exchange programme to offer the possibility of travel to different places where they will meet international colleagues, learn, compare, exchange and thus reflect the results in their works. This programme will take place in Cambodia, Chile, Cuba, Germany, Haiti, Myanmar and South Africa. Our opening workshop will take place in Yangon/Myanmar from 25th April to 1st May 2017.
