Feldstärke International 2014

This took place in June/July 2014 in Essen and Marseille, and September 2014 in Kyoto. 30 participants, 10 each from Germany, France and Japan, met for three week-long working phases in Essen, Marseille and Kyoto. Using a form of field research directly responsive to its location, the participants explored practical, intercultural and inter-disciplinary working methods, as well as urban, social, political and artistic contexts, in order to illuminate similarities and differences and open up unexpected perspectives on their own artistic strategies and those of others.

PARTICIPANTS

The 2014 edition of Feldstärke International (an exchange programme with a constantly-evolving format, led by PACT Zollverein), was a collaboration between Montévideo in Marseille and the Kyoto Art Center. Each of the three spaces opened their doors for one week to a group of 30 students from more than 20 higher education institutions in North-Rhine Westphalia, France and Japan. Using a form of field research directly responsive to its location, the participants explored practical, intercultural and inter-disciplinary working methods, as well as urban, social, political and artistic contexts, in order to illuminate similarities and differences and open up unexpected perspectives.
After visiting Essen in June and Marseille in July, the group took up residence in Kyoto, the oldest town in Japan, from September 13th to 20th. There the project concluded with a public tour at the Kyoto Art Center on September 19th.
