Uncertain States FLAX Foreign Local Artistic Xchange. Pop-Up-Office.


FLAX is a cultural exchange and cooperation programme for locals and refugees engaged in the cultural sector. It promotes interdisciplinary artistic cooperation, development and cultural education.

In a pop-up office during the exhibition, a group of prominent artists from Germany is advising and supporting refugees who are cultural practitioners. Those taking part include Rasha Abbas, Ulf Aminde, Nabil Arbain, Katharina Grosse, Gaby Horn, Lanna Idriss, Mona Jas, Ali Kaaf, Dima Kalaji, Jalal Maghout, Katharina Nabutovic, Nomadic Art, Annika Reich, Nasan Tur et al.
