Fragile Affinities - (Re)strengthening international artistic collaboration
Symposium organised by Internationale Gesellschaft der Bildenden Künste in cooperation with Akademie der Künste, Berlin, on the occasion of IGBK's 60th anniversary.

Against the background of authoritarian and nationalist movements in many countries, artists, too, are becoming growingly restricted in their rights to freedom or excluded from exchange. We are concerned about the alarming developments in Turkey, the increasing erosion of democratic institutions in the EU Member States of Poland and Hungary, and the British vote to exit the EU. With this year’s election a nationalist party is 3rd strongest group in the German Bundestag. Considering also most recent German-German history, these examples cause us to debate the ways in which artists preserve and shape necessary spaces for their activity in times of decreasing social cohesion within Europe.
