This Berlin-based multidisciplinary exhibition is part of a series of independent, interdisciplinary & intercultural programs of Moving Poets Berlin & Charlotte (movingpoets.org) for their 25th anniversary. Participants are invited to show works which are inspired by the book "The Little Prince", as well as by the life and death of the author and pilot, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Acceptable works: painting, drawing, sculpture, performance, installation, sound, hybrid, mixed media.
All selected works will be presented at Mobe Moving Poets Berlin e.V., NOVILLA,
August 6th - 28th.
Aims: the project aims to bring people together and build community, by focusing on issues that are common to most cultures, ethnicities and age groups. It draws on multicultural influences, experiences and perspectives of artists. Incorporating a child's view of an adult-world dominated by empty rituals and narrow-minded "trivia" - while in need of heart and a sense of purpose.
Themes: Youth, old age, home, imagination, courage, meaning, joy, war, dehumanization, relationships, conflict, curiosity, prejudice, sadness, loss, love, kindness, and death.
The work should (re)discover fundamental and basic values whilst exploring the challenges that we share regardless of religion, gender and heritage.
Selection: participating artists will receive a 150€ - 250€ artist fee and will be selected by a cross-disciplinary curatorial team led by Dr. Sudul Edwards, Chief Curator & Curator of Contemporary Art at the Mint Museum in Charlotte, USA (mintmuseum.org). Dr. Jennifer Sudol Edwards received her Ph.D. from the Institute of Fine Arts at NYU and has served as curator at the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, before serving as a curator at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art.
The artistic direction is provided by the Belgian artist Mark Swysen (markswysen.com).
