Verkstad has been selected for the Tandem Exchange Programme

mindmap_tandem

Verkstad has been selected for participation in the TANDEM programme for Cultural Exchange. The possibility has arisen through the project manager Susanne Ewerlöf’s participation in Tandem Partner Forum in June. Verkstad will collaborate with Istanbul-based gallery Maumau and curator Naz Cuguoğlu. Together we will develop the project IdentityLab which will focus on issues about identity and belonging and different ideas about and expressions of nationalism. It will be one of many projects related to the extensive research-project Becoming by Recalling. Four artists from Sweden and Turkey will be selected to participate and take part in travels and exchange and do extensive reasearch and share knowledge about  identity.

Participation in Tandem Exchange means that Verkstad and Maumau will do the collaborative project over the next year and that the two managers/curators will take part in a number of exchange meetings in Turkey and Europe during the period together with fellow cultural managers from other cities in EU and Turkey.
