I think Travers offers a unique opportunity for getting an insight, or “traversing” into other creative fields. This is something which I believe is fruitful for personal development as well as potential future collaboration. – Freja Kir, participating artist in camp 1
TRAVERS is a cross-artistic journey that aims to pose questions and search for answers. TRAVERS will provide the space to challenge habits, mind-sets and attitudes. It will seek out new processes and artistic languages, and cultivate the art of encounter. TRAVERS aims to create a strong society of artists, who will develop and expand the interdisciplinary field during exceptional opportunities for working across formats and territories.
TRAVERS will host three collaborative camps in November 2018, May 2019 and June 2020. These residencies will offer an opportunity to found new, egalitarian workspaces, where artists can work and wonder together in a shared artistic laboratory.
The TRAVERS camps are open to all artists and scholars. The journey is free and offers various ways of joining.
Helmut Oehring (1961) is a German composer and previous student of Georg Katzer at the Academy of Arts in Berlin. Since receiving a scholarship to Villa Massimo in Rome, Helmut has proceeded to obtain numerous awards including the Hindemith Prize (1997) and the Arnold Schönberg Prize (2008). Helmut’s work spans almost all musical genres and he has incorporated electronic media, sign language, dance, performance, conceived / improvised music, radio drama and film to create an instrumental vocal theatre that combines poetic forms with political content. The New Yorker recently named him one of the “most influential audiovisual composers alongside John Adams, Kaija Saariaho, Björk, and Robert Ashley.” Internationally renowned, Helmut is a jury member of the Karl Sczuka Prize for International Radio Drama Art of the SWR as well as a member of the Academy of Arts Berlin, the Saxon Academy of Arts and the Academy of German Music Authors.
