"Who crosses the rubicon" has made a decision; one sees the way and the finish line clearly and lets nobody get in one's way. To use the power of art for the development of society, this is our objective. Therefore, we checked our positions critically and set out towards new shores.
The prologue of 2013 applies to ourselves: we should consider ourselves as well as become aware of the perception from the outside. How is art able to create a dialogue with politics and science, the individual and society? Which new perspectives is this dialogue able to open?
It is about making fractures and limits visible no matter if of typographical, physical, linguistic or mental nature. How much power possesses art and which resources is it using when it comes to overcome and dissolve borders.
