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.
During „lockdown light“ winter FLORIDA will support artists within the frame of an residency, which offers time, money and space to the invited artists, to continue their ongoing practice. We are happy to introduce you to the first artist in residence, @nnast_antn, who will work at FLORIDA from mid December until end of January.
