Research tour Berlin | The NewBridge Project

By Andrzej Raszyk, 13. Oktober 2012

The NewBridge Project, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK is an artist led studio and exhibition space committed to supporting and developing emerging practice.

During the eleven days research trip to Berlin, following questions were explored: What is the role of Art in the larger social ecology of Berlin and its politics?
Is there communication between large, publicly funded institutions and independent spaces or do the two remain separate?
What is the relationship between art and critical writing/discourse in Berlin?
What existing opportunities and infrastructures are there currently in Berlin, what can we learn from them and how these will connect with our work in Newcastle?
