Solidarity has always a great importance but especially in these challenging times it needs creatives measures. With its new project the foundation Between Bridges shows an inspiring example of how it can work.
For the 2020Solidarity project over 50 international artists came together to create art that has a lasting impact. We have all seen cultural and music venues, community projects, independent spaces as well as several publications suffering from the pandemic. A lot of them are even existentially threatened by the current crisis. To support these institutions Between Bridges asked each of the artists to design one A2 poster, which can be offered on different crowdfunding sites and campaigns as a reward for a 50€ / £50 / $50 donation.
Between Bridges was established in 2017 and is a foundation for the advancement of democracy, international understanding, the arts, and LGBT rights. It was also a non-profit exhibition space in London from 200 till 2011, and in Berlin from 2014 till 2019, organized by Wolfgang Tillmans.
