Exhibition Call. Demographic Changes. Deadline: Oct. 30, 2019

Call for Art Exhibition in Berlin. Curator Dorit Jordan Dotan
The triangle between cultural conquest, assimilation and integration

Demographic changes affect global and local politics, economies, urban affairs and day to day life.

For some of those who were lucky to be born in a stable, strong, democratic country, it is hard to accept those changes. It creates fear of job loss and the changing of familiar local culture.  Immigrants or refugees face changes adapting to social behavior codes. History forewarns what can happen when hate, fear and a sense of threat grows among and between people coming from different cultures, who now share space.

Making peace within oneself – coexisting with oneself and others – can be achieved in many ways. Art can create a safe, public place to express and explore these clashes of culture.

Does acceptance of those different from us always result in complete assimilation?

Is cultural conquest inevitable?

Is integration the goal, or the compromise?

How do we go from tolerating to tolerance?

Exhibition about Demographic Changes, will take place in Berlin, Germany. The curator will open her artist residency project with a group exhibition from the USA and the EU. The exhibition will be on view in early 2020, located at the Institut für Alles Mögliche Studio/Storefront Gallery in Berlin, Germany.
