Brief description of residency program

Narine Zolyan --- Art Residence in Quedlinburg/Germany
Description of the residency program

The basic idea is to make a “Culture-Integration-Dialogue” with different artists of the lands out of Europe and inside Europe.
We want to activate this little town of Quedlinburg in art. This town have now only a very long history of middleaged kings residences and old architecture. Many people are workless or were gone after opening the German-German borderline. In actual time only commercial interests, tourism, and the typical capitalismus effects of to have no money and a consciousness only about money, work and television rules the minds of the people.
This is a humanistic project against:
-Consumerism
-Stereotypes
-Separation ……. of people and values.
This project wants to connect well-minded-persons together.
This project wants to bring back the values of humanism in our Post-Modernism time.
The resident artist have the possibility to research the visiting region of middle-east Germany in context of the German east-west-conflict and the contemporary situation now.
The resident artist have to work about:
-global “Integration”, human universal values
-lokal “After the Wall against the Border”, research about the local history
This art residence is a first step to bring together different artists for later concerted work in this subject in a bigger “Culture-Integration-Project” with (in actual time now) partners in Russia and Armenia.
