A cultural network between Mediterranean countries
The vision of this project focuses on recovering the historical relationship that the different cultures of the Mediterranean countries always had, and now are currently lost due to socio-political and economic issues. The European borders, increasingly reinforced, prevent cultural exchange and cancel the perception of everything that does not fall within the region. Isolation worsens and it is more difficult to realize the critical situation that we are facing globally, be it due to the depletion of resources, the migration crisis, or climate change.
Underline promotes an idea of a cross-border creative community.
We present a residency program between cultural spaces.
SPAIN / Konvent
Konvent is a late XIX century nun’s convent and textile colony that we have been converted into a multidisciplinary arts center. It’s a space for art and a way of understanding and undertaking cultural practices that are rooted in the territory.
LEBANON / Great Oven Beqaa
The Great Oven has been building giant ovens and creating community kitchens in places of need. Great Oven Beqaa is a cultural space we build in Beqaa Valley, next to a refugee camp.
