Auszeichnung
künstlerischer Projekträume
und -initiativen
It just makes my heart sing. Despite all that, I believe in art, but I guess it is about time to find new ways (again).Even though COVEN doesn’t have our own project space (although we are thinking about getting a ­studio …), we make space, mainly for our queer community in Berlin and online. We make space to come together, meet each other, talk about stuff, and laugh. We try to pay as many queers as we can to make art with us. To think about art, to question art. Art for us has always been about creating community and offer alternatives to worn-out narratives. We like art for its world-making capacity.Kunst kann fast alles, muss es aber nicht. Heute arbeiten wir in einem neoliberalen ­Turbokapitalismus, der an seine absoluten globalen Grenzen gekommen ist. Ohne künstlerische Arbeit wird es keine nachvollziehbare Übersetzung der jetzt NOTwendigen sozial-ökologischen Transformationsprozesse der west­europäisch geprägten Industriegesellschaften geben.
