"For us, art is not an end in itself ... but it is an opportunity for the true perception and criticism of the times we live in.?" '' Hugo Ball.
The association association represents a conviction towards a social responsibility, which not only highlights, promotes, and delivers our shared beliefs, but also subscribes to a collective support of our, and our partners independence of mind and spirit for the common good - as opposed to and certainly challenging some aspect of mass culture.
Their mutual responsibility and their collective duty as citizens of our various European countries is to exercise acts of critical scrutiny within and beyond the societies we share, and to free each other from the inherited straitjacket of mass culture. To give a clear and a precise voice to form the wider discussion of what is truly "social responsibility".
Through a tangibly diverse spectrum of culture initiatives, not confined to the visual arts, but for our influence to reach into sound and music, language and literary expressions, the association has the mission to create an arena whereby better ways of relating to one another in a European context can be learnt, shared and developed - and then go on to use this perspective as a basis for challenging and changing the existing oppressive social structures. Our association aims to be a catalyst of cultural expression and interaction that makes a determined effort to preserve our diverse societies in Europe and yet to help us become more open and inclusive. __ ul.
