AGORA 2010 / Feldstärke International is inviting to the Ruhr Metropolis advanced students from progressive art universities and academies (from Cologne, Berlin, Gießen, Essen, Dortmund, Paris, Los Angeles, and Istanbul) from the disciplines of performance, dance, media art, photography, painting, and sculpture. In small, interdisciplinary work groups and with social, urban, and artistic explorative questions and topics in tote, they will blaze their own trails through the region over the course of a week. Along the way, techniques and methods, form languages, and boundaries will be assessed, exchanged, tossed, and newly configured.


The sketches, actions, and field research engendered along the way will find presentation in a public programme.
