Having carried out the unique international dance exchange ruhr project biannually between 2000 – 2004, PACT Zollverein is now, within the framework of tanzplan essen 2010, developing the format to include students of the fine arts. AGORA will offer young artists and art promoters of the future, an opportunity to engage in concentrated trans-disciplinary exchange away from the day-to-day pressures of academic life.

Radical changes in artistic practices and directions over the last twenty years, have raised a whole host of questions concerning the focus, content, form and goals of education in the arts. AGORA pools artistic resources and expertise from different disciplines and countries, links practical teaching with the future applications of the knowledge, information and experience it conveys and, in so doing, aims to address fundamental questions that can’t be answered by genre specific expertise alone.

During AGORA approximately 80 young artists and 20 tutors will work together at PACT Zollverein in December with invited guest artists on practical and theoretical questions:

FRIDAY 7. DECEMBER and 8. SATURDAY 2007 19.00 – 23.00 h

A multidisciplinary group exhibition of the work of young artists taking part in AGORA including installations, interventions and performances throughout the 3000 square meter former colliery shower building which is home to PACT Zollverein.
