The mobile exhibition project Cultural Clash Nomad will get underway on 30 August. Taking the form of a caravan, over the course of two weeks it will move from Leipzig to Geneva via Nordhausen, Frankfurt, Ludwigshafen and Strasbourg. Under the artistic direction of Professor Alba D’Urbano, Carsten Möller and Professor Ingrid Wildi Merino, nineteen young artists will present their views on cultural identity, our understanding of which is currently in a state of flux. Reflecting the travelling nature of the exhibition, their art will be displayed in tents and caravans. In addition, programmes tailored to and interacting with each location will be held comprising for instance screenings of videos and films, guided tours, readings, and finally in Geneva a display summing up the project. With the twenty-first century still in its early days, maximizing mobility appears to be its watchword. The form chosen for the exhibition alludes to migration, a seemingly all-embracing phenomenon. In fact nowadays everything is on the move, from goods and people to information and ideas.During the mobile exhibition project, artists/students from HGB Leipzig and HEAD Geneva will address the issue of cultural identity from historical, social, geopolitical and ethnic angles at each venue.

The class for Intermedia at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig is particularly known for exhibitions with a socio-political background. This exposition shows a slightly different side to the class. The focus here is based on individual, personal, intimate themes. „Movements on the other side of the moon“ – could be a way to concisely summarise the framework of the exhibition. The participating artists question themselves: Who am I? …in this place? …at this moment in time? The starting point is less of an urge to communicate directly with the outside world, to intervene or to raise social problems. These are essentially silent works. Through them the artists listen to their inner selves and eavesdrop on the hidden and encrypted elements of their own existence. In this respect, they are very intimate statements. Neither do the works however close in on themselves or remain in the state of pure narcissism. They point beyond themselves. One can feel in them the imprint of a social everyday life, the breath of the world around them. All which gives these artistic positions a sense of touching urgency.
