Manifesto

Manifesto

Change.

 

The student movements of the 1960’s were fuelled by a desire to change the predominant vertical, male hierarchies in politics, mainstream culture, education and the arts and a wish to move to more horizontal structures based on collaboration, dialogue, fluidity and equality. While the beginnings of collaboratively devised performance can be probably traced all the way back to the beginnings of theatre itself, the explosion of devising practices, training methods and companies since the 1970’s is closely linked to this political movement of change. In the meantime devised theatre and performance has seen a rich development of artistic languages and a differentiation of its motivations and working processes beyond the political. In this context arthaus.berlin international school addresses artists who wish to move towards artistic autonomy to experience themselves as agents of change and transformation in contemporary culture.

Inter-being.

 

The fall of the Berlin wall in 1989 marked the end of the so called “iron curtain”. Since then Berlin has become an iconic symbol for the emergence of subcultures which continue to challenge the political and cultural “either/or “ dichotomy, so present during the period of the Cold War, but also re-emerging all across Europe and beyond in the far right political movements of present days. Being is inter-being. This approach opens a space for a new understanding  of encounter, where otherness is not a threat, but an opportunity. arthaus.berlin international school wishes to foster a growing awareness for inter-being, in all aspects of artistic and cultural life, and to encourage therefore our students to move  towards interdisciplinary exchange, international collaborations and the trans-cultural. This demands a culture of dialogue, so that autonomy and inter-being do not exclude each other, but become the two halves of a powerful new creative polarity. .

Flux.

 

In 2007 Apple launches the first iPhone and with it a cultural revolution. Everybody can now become her/his own filmmaker, photographer, DJ., and is able to take on the role of a cultural producer. The creation of culture is no longer in the hands of a few individuals, but open to everybody. Contemporary culture enters a phase of enormous diversity, pluralism and fluidity and the concepts of what constitutes art need to be redefined. In this cultural context at the beginning of the 21st century arthaus.berlin international school enjoys the opportunity to be a place of creative research and flux, where the modernist art vision of transcending time and place, of aiming for a truth, an absolute, a unity, of making sense of the world, of being poetic and metaphorical meets its polar opposite, the postmodernist rejection of style and unity in favour of assemblage, the personal, the local, the liminal, the androgynous, to fertilise each other.
