Northeast Southwest is a contemporary art project with exhibitions and artworks in and around the robotron-canteen as well as in the public space in Dresden. The artistic exchange is dedicated to the oldest and still current system of orientation of humankind, decisive for existence and life perspectives. At the center of the projects is the reflection of the shifting of global, political and cultural coordinate systems. While the ‘old East’ and the ‘new West’ are transfiguring mythically or diabolically, depending on one’s perspective and distance to the events, the terms global South and global North have long since highlighted the significance of much older lines of relationships and conflicts.
Four selected spaces of the independent art scene in Dresden contribute to the Northeast Southwest with their own artistic projects in the urban space. In cooperation with the Schenkung Sammlung Hoffmann / Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden selected works from the collection will be shown in the spaces.
