Exhibition of the artworks created at the special focus art residency, taking place in the framework of the Mozaik EuroMed Arthub project.
Participating visual artists:
Mohab Abdelghaffar (Egypt)
Michael Gerber Touma (Germany)
In cooperation with the Anna Lindh Foundation, and the Károlyi Palace.
The International Art Colony proudly introduces its second episode of the special focus art residency series, specifically designed for active and exceptionally talented visual artists hailing from the EUROMED region. Motivated by the desire to cultivate meaningful intercultural dialogue through the visual arts in the Euro-Mediterranean region, and committed to leveraging the capabilities of modern social media outreach for amplified impact, the International Art Colony is excited to launch the groundbreaking project and documentary film series “Mozaik – EUROMRD ARTHUB”.
This initiative holds significant relevance for fostering Intercultural Dialogue. By inviting two artists from the Mediterranean’s complementary shores, it enables a rich exchange of perspectives and ideas. Through their residency, these artists engage in deep dialogue, sharing insights on art’s role in their societies. Moreover, showcasing their work to wider audiences deepens understanding of each other’s cultures. Given Europe’s limited exposure to Arab art, and given the Arab states limited exposure to German art, this initiative is impactful. It exposes selected artists to new audiences: Thus, the initiative addresses multiple targets, broadening cultural horizons and promoting cross-cultural appreciation in the visual arts domain.
