ABOUT THE PROJECT:
“In-Situ: Friction” is a collaboration project between the 180° – Laboratory for Innovative Art Festival(Bulgaria) and the International Ensemble Modern Academy(Germany), which will create a partnership between the two organizations, allowing students from Germany and Bulgaria to explore the different cultural values of the cities of Sofia and Frankfurt am Main, inspiring them to create innovative formats and cultural projects and meet different faces of the cities.
Creating innovative creative projects that remove the boundaries between different disciplines and genres and at the same time go beyond traditional methods of creating art. Supporting young artists by providing an environment that promotes freedom of creativity and the study of contemporary art trends.

“In-Situ: Friction” provides a unique opportunity for international collaboration with students from the International Ensemble Modern Academy, one of the most prestigious German program for contemporary music. Together with our partners we find a way to carry out this exchange even in very challenging world situations – when it is most needed because of the lower chances for exchange of professional experience with organisations outside Bulgaria.
