Local is the New Global

The aim of the project is to identify ways to involve local communities in the art process in the public space, to establish links between social and artistic processes, and to achieve distinct artistic results.

Local is the New Global raises the question of how to translate the context and personal experience into a universal statement, which would understandable for a wide range of people. The conjecture, Local is the New Global, doesn’t aim to unravel all complexities of contemporary society and its components. Instead, it proposes a methodology when these complexities can become the basis of work, rethinking problems as themes, which are only then transformed into complete works of art or direct actions.

Local is the New Global contributes an exchange of knowledge and obtaining new experience. It facilitates self-determination. It develops a culture of dialogue. A common field of understanding between participants is created, priorities of the group determined, all in due process.
