Shifting Identities

Shifting Identities is the working title for a project that started summer 2019. The idea is to provide a framework to share stories and to focus contentwise on the intersections between the West and the Orient. How much do we know about the Middle-East and how much do people from the Middle-East know about our way of living? What is connecting us and what pushes us further apart?

Art and Agriculture – Kunst und Landwirtschaft (CH)

The gap between urban and rural culture is becoming wider. While an idealized view of the countryside is common, the reality is that the countryside has rapidly modernized and transformed in a rural-industrialized society. These transformation will continue and create policy challenges because the use of land, materials and energy will increasingly meet natural limits.
How could public participation and small-scale agriculture help to find the balance between the different perspectives on sustainable development?

How can we understand today’s countryside in a vastly urbanized world?

Is the countryside the contrary of the city? Is it a place where ideas for the future emerge?

During the last 20 years my focus has gone to cities, urban needs, social diversity and inclusion. The incidental acquaintance between the Swiss artist and farmer Werner Neuhaus and me, is the starting point to investigate the topic ‘art and agriculture‘.
