wechselweise (2018-2019)

“We take culture where it is needed.”

With the cooperation project “wechselweise” (alternately) the AlarmTheater takes another step to connect with artists and institutions in the region OWL.

In the three years of the project, 2018 to 2020, concept meetings will take place with all involved partners on a regular basis. Together, the participants will develop conceptual working blocks at multiple project stages.

The goal of the project is the draft of guidelines for the successful cooperation work between artists and institutions, which can be institutionally transferred. Parallel to the conceptual project work the artists will realize their own art projects within the institutions, so that there is room to hands-on experiment with the theoretical contents during the entire project phase.
