Art Squat Forum
Art Squat Forum is an international, interdisciplinary festival that will take place this year in 13,000 square meters of the architectural complex of “Arthouse”.
The festival’s core consists of approximately twenty independent exhibitions, put together by participants of self-organized creative collectives, representing a wide range of tendencies and artistic directions. With the aim of bringing the contemporary audience and a broad assortment of creative professionals into an active dialogue, the festival curators have supplemented the exhibitions with a program of Q+A sessions, lectures, concerts, performances, theatrical productions, markets and parties, which will stretch over the course of four weeks.
Guided by the principles of openness and freedom for different creative pursuits – from art, theatre, dance, music and film – Art Squat Forum aims to foster communication between various participants of the contemporary art processes. The festival’s title hearkens to an age of self-organization for artists, which was already a trend in the nineteenth century. In the 20th century, empty buildings gave rise to entire creative communities, enriching the social fabric of the megapolis. Historical squats – among them Bateau Lavoir in Paris, or the later Ruigoord near Amsterdam, Jordan in Amsterdam, the arts neighborhood in Los Angeles or RHINO, the squat of independent cinematographers in Geneva – all became critical points in the history of world culture. The curators of Art Squat Forum propose using “squatting” as a method of combatting isolation and alienation within the larger creative community.
