Nine brand new digital artworks have been published on LOOM – Interweaving the Arts in Europe, the digital platform for artistic collaboration of the European Alliance of Academies.
The nine selected artists – all associated to institutions of the European Alliance of Academies – engaged with the poems of Szépírók Társasága members and created multidisciplinary artworks that respond, comment and reflect on the social and political reality of today’s life in Hungary.
Many thanks to poets Réka Borda, Renátó Fehér, Mónika Ferencz, Róbert Laboda, Zsófi Kemény, Dénes Krusovszky, Márton Simon, Balázs Szálinger and Ádám Vajna to embark with us on this artistic journey.
With their work, Yese Astarloa, Matei Bejenaru, Lucija Bogunović, Sayaka Fujio, Iosif Király, Paul Michels, Mariano Ortega, Dimitrina Popova and Laura Stojkoski added another layer of meaning to the poetry selection, thereby creating a pan-European artwork.
Several alliance members were involved in the design of the project. We would like to express our sincere thanks to Ferenc Czinki (Szépírók Társasága), Kristoffer Gansing (former International Center for Knowledge in the Arts – The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts), Anca Poterasu (Romanian Association for contemporary Art), Geertjan de Vugt (Akademie van Kunsten), Nikki Petroni (Arts Council Malta) and Josip Zanki (Croatian Association of Fine Artists).
Artists and poets will have the opportunity to present their work at the next conference of the European Alliance of Academies entitles The Climate We Live In. An Alliance Against the Far Right takes place on 25-26 March 2024 at Akademie der Künste in Berlin.
