Artist-led studio and exhibition space The NewBridge Project, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK is committed to supporting and developing emerging artistic practice.
During the eleven days research trip to Berlin, the 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?
