Projects, which fall within this subject area will cumulate in a joint presentation weekend - mid September 2004 - in the form of a festival/symposium with other invited artists. 

About "pro-existence" 

Recent worldwide events have brought the brutality of our global society, its prejudices, its racial, religious, political and cultural differences, back to our immediate attention. With such a wealth on social-political problems surrounding us, we, as artists, question the use and sense of what we do.  

What role can art play in such a difficult environment of global capitalism and inequality, xenophobia, violence and terrorism?  

The Pro-Existence project wants to examine the possibilities art may or may not have in this society.We want to bring together artists from bigger and smaller "hot spots" around the world. 

Co-existence means building bridges between people and understanding ourselves as part of a complex, interdependent system.
