In 2008 a group of people from the art scene shared a common goal, to research artist-run spaces and groups, and independent art activity from all over the world. OFFSPACES International Research Program focuses on presenting and documenting cutting edge ideas and new and experimental projects, and to reveal the international network of innovative activity and off space initiative.
The international audience reaches out to the new identity of the contemporary artist as expressed through the global language of art. Building a long-term relationship and partnership with artists and organizations, the project encourages the public to become part of this society of creative pioneers.
‘Get-togethers’ of diverse artistic and cultural domains pave the way for new collaborations, expanding forms of creativity further than the visual arts. Artists have a unique chance to present themselves on an international level, to compare practices and strategies and to develop prospect partnerships, enhancing in so, a trans cultural dialogue.
OFFSPACES International is open to collaboration with sponsors, foundations and embassies. Its purpose is to create a network of artists and organizations, to support artistic production on an international level.
