INTERIM – Un tunnel transatlantique
The publication “INTERIM – Un tunnel transatlantique“ is the finalisation of an artist exchange and exhibition project between ten female and male artists from Montréal and Leipzig (Germany) in 2012 and 2013. The book traces the discussion that took place around the content of this project and traces as well the difficulties encountered and the advantages of the exchange experienced by all those involved. Using the metaphor of the ‘transatlantic tunnel’, ten artists reflect the issues of building bridges between unknown cultures, art scenes, perspectives of life and translation problems in their works, which were presented to the public in Montréal (2012) and in Leipzig (2013). The book provides a contextualization by various authors of the project themes and documents the exhibitions in both cities. In this way it provides an insight into a project which looks from an art perspective at the highly topical themes of globalization and the connection of cultures and languages while questioning at the same time the role of new communication technologies and their influence on human lives.
