art-werk designs exhibitions on urgent and global issues for art venues and museums. Through staging, scenarios, the combination of contemporary and historical artistic approaches or the integration of scientists in the development of projects, the association promotes an emotional and cognitive approach that differs from traditional exhibitions. In this way, it promotes access to exhibitions for audiences of different ages, genres and socio-cultural backgrounds. As a non-profit association, it particularly insists on promoting free visits and offers on its website free access to a varied content that allows a better understanding of the context of the works and exhibitions.
Art can be a vector of reflection and transformation in the face of socio-environmental problems, and goes even further, as it attempts to become timeless through the combination of forms and concepts. In its exhibitions, art-werk seeks to integrate the visitors into an artistic and sensory constellation capable of transcending the issues under discussion, to arouse the imagination, to excite curiosity and knowledge.
In close contact with a wide network of international artists, the association seeks to offer the ideal conditions to allow works to express their full poetic, critical and speculative potential. At the same time, thanks to the integration of actors from outside the world of contemporary art: civil society, writers and academic experts on the issues at stake, it develops a transdisciplinary approach based on modes of narration and mediation.
