We are a collective that works out of the arts in the creation of the narrative of the new cities. Through the development of urbanisation, increasing migration and new technologies, our artistic spectrum is immensely enriched. We research what, influenced by new technologies, is produced in networks by people from all over the world. This is the trigger for our projects, creations and research. We feel lucky to live in different metropolises where more than 180 nationalities live together. This is an invaluable wealth of history and culture.
By working with intangible heritage we can, among other things, have access to a part of these stories. We mix traditions, aesthetics and worldviews. It is important to preserve cultural traditions but if you want a tradition to have a impact on people, you have to let go and open it up. Let it be enriched and changed. At this point you don’t have to be afraid of loss. That is what it takes to create the heritage of the future. A unique and rich cultural heritage of all of us.
