Process and research oriented, cross-cultural project
Künstlerisches Forschungsprojekt
curatorial research, artistic research, process-based , cross-cultural
The CrossSections project was an interdisciplinary platform, contemplating on artistic research, dialogues, and production. The project reflected on "process" in the form of an open format with the aim to articulate critical reactions to the political, economic, and social disturbances facing us today. The project emerged from the need to challenge the ‘status quo’ across the political spectrum and support effective and critical forms of discursive and artistic productions to emerge. The CrossSections project aimed to create a collective interdisciplinary research platform and network; to propose a curatorial model that prioritizes and presents the “process” of the artistic research along with the production; and to share and articulate diverse critical reactions and collective strategies in the context of art. In the course of three years (2017-2019), with the participation of 19 artists, some scholars and cultural workers, various meetings, workshops, exhibitions, performances, and talks were held in three cities: Vienna, Helsinki, and Stockholm.
