Name of Residency: Kunst Asyl

Narine Zolyan — Art Residence in Quedlinburg/Germany
Description of the residency program

The basic idea is to make a Culture-Integration-Dialogue with different artists of the lands out of Europe and inside Europe.
We want to activate this little town of Quedlinburg in art. This town have now only a very long history of middleaged kings residences and old architecture. Some people are workless or were gone after opening the German-German borderline. In actual time commercial interests, tourism, and the typical capitalismus effects of to have no money (also the town itself) and a consciousness only about this themes rules the minds of the most people.
This is a humanistic project against:
-Consumerism
-Stereotypes
-Separation of the people’s mind from really values.
This project wants to connect well-minded-persons together.
This project wants to bring back the values of humanism in our Post-Modernism time.
The resident artist have the possibility to research the visiting region of middle-east Germany in context of the German east-west-conflict and the contemporary situation now.
The resident artist have to work about:
-from global prospect: Integration, human universal values
-from lokal prospect: After the wall against the border, research about the local history.
This art residence is a first step to bring together different artists for later concerted work in this subject in a bigger Culture Project with (in actual time now) partners in Russia and Armenia.
