Time To Listen, Space To Experiment: Perspectives from Re-Imagine Europe 2017-2021
This book highlights the legacy and the outcomes of the 4-year Re-Imagine Europe programme. It contains in-depth interviews with a selection of artists who were commissioned to make new works, such as Jennifer Walshe, AM Kanngieser, Nikima Jagudajev, Barby Asante, BJ Nilsen, Marja Ahti and Kali Malone next to essays, reflections and visual contributions on works and projects such as WIWMAVGAIWLDSAATCWA, The Informals, Persuasion Lab, Steal This Poster, MOTHA, sound workshops and more. The book starts with a conversation between Anna Ramos, Lucas van der Velden and François Bonnet about the importance of experimentation in the arts, and how such experiments can be relevant for society.
Re-Imagine Europe (2017-2021) was a four-year project involving ten cultural organisations from across Europe, responding to the social and political challenges in Europe. With a programme of residencies, commissions, symposia, and workshops, the project partners stimulated both artistic production and audience development. They experimented with new ways of reaching out to their audiences, motivated by the ambition to develop a broader and more engaging approach to audience development.
