Both formats – the AiR and the Care Online format – are related to questions that we as FLORIDA have been pursuing on different levels for quite a while now: How can we, as freelance artists working for little money in a Munich art space, question and improve existing conditions and structures under which artists and cultural workers are usually invited in the art and culture business. How can we mutually formulate realistic and reasonable expectations, how can good support and communication look like and a fair amount and way of compensation. We want to give ourselves the time it takes to develop more solidary forms of collaboration. This is work we will continue to do, if you have any tips or comments on this, feel free to send them our way.
Wir freuen uns, euch unsere derzeitige Residentin vorzustellen: Abeer Farhoud. Sie arbeitet seit Anfang März im FLORIDA an figurativen Gipsskulpturen bzw. Reliefs, die sich unter den Arbeitstiteln „Kids in War“ (Kinder im Krieg) und „A wall in a dictator house“ (Eine Wand im Haus des Diktators) mit den Themen Krieg und Tod, Macht und Ohnmacht auseinandersetzen.
