art-werk is an association dedicated to contemporary art and curatorial research on the relationships between artistic, scientific, social and environmental practices. In cooperation with external partners, the team develops exhibitions and artistic educational programmes that question the concept of sustainability, the relationship between art and science, the development of aesthetic forms and their dissemination. Thus art-werk aims to stimulate curiosity and explores specifically exhibition and mediation formats that enable the viewer to actively participate in the realization of a work. Through interactive scenarios, role plays, thematic exhibitions, publications and workshops, the association explores new vectors of narratives, potentially beyond rationality and social norms. art-werk aims to reach a broad intergenerational audience from the artistic, entrepreneurial, academic and associative worlds. Further research outputs are articles, publications, artist editions and monthly podcasts.
art-werk was created in 2012 on the initiative of Bernard Vienat.
