RUD AIR is first of all a retreat for artists. It is not a space for promotion, exhibition, strategic networking, or facing a public audience. It is a space for reflection and rest in order to make space for something new.
RUD AIR wants to make space for the stillness and peace within the surrounding nature and within human consciousness. As a contrast to the excessive visual noice, imagery crap and egoistic self-affirmation, in this world of crisis and chaos – artists are welcomed to a possibility of being quiet and listen to the silence. RUD AIR wishes to give artists the opportunity to not produce or perform, but to gently direct their attention to the source from where ideas and creativity truly originates, before it is even called art. The boundless space within oneself that constantly redefines itself in relation to the world.
