TRANSIT LOUNGE

TRANSIT LOUNGE

An ongoing, experimental project the TRANSIT LOUNGE has, since 2006, evolved through many different formats to continually explore the potentials of interdisciplinary collaboration. Originally developed to offer Australian artists the opportunity to work abroad in a challenging yet supportive environment, since 2007 the project has included artists from across Europe in order to stimulate transnational artistic exchange across a variety of contexts. Initially based in Berlin, in 2008 the project was extended to Sydney and Melbourne.  Challenging the preconceptions of collaborative practice, artists were expected to work simultaneously at a local and international level.Since its inception, TRANSIT LOUNGE has been a partner event of transmediale – festival for art and digital culture, one of Europe’s largest and longest running festivals of New-media art. This association will continue in 2009, with the new project structure developed in direct response to the 2009 festival theme DEEP NORTH. A detailed description of TRANSIT LOUNGE 09: MOVING WHILE STANDING STILL is provided in the project outline below.
