"It is a sensation that the almost two-hour balancing act with its enormous height of fall does not even stumble once (...) It is exciting - and probably more than political theatre can even hope for." taz, 1.3.2020

Solidarity instead of privileges. It's about everyone. Art remains free!

Among many other cultural institutions, werkgruppe2 is one of the signatories of the DECLARATION OF THE MANY.

The restriction of artistic freedom is already a bitter reality in European countries like Turkey and Russia, but also within the European Union in Hungary or Poland. The threat to artistic freedom is also not unrealistic in Italy or Austria. In Germany and other EU countries, too, artistic freedom could be threatened by nationalist or right-wing authoritarian governmental involvement.

The countries of the European Union themselves represent a diversity of life plans and cultures. Their political design must be based on the idea of a Europe of the many: A Europe based on solidarity, which does not continue to seal itself off, but creates secure access for people from non-European countries who want to live here. Artists*, intellectuals, people with different views and people with other ways of life are also forced to emigrate from European countries and places all over the world. The right of asylum and freedom of movement like the freedom of art are connected with each other - art is not created within national borders. In the different constitutions and in the Declaration of Human Rights, the right of asylum is named like freedom of art. Both are intended to meet the requirements of a Europe of the many and to ensure that the many from non-European countries can also live in dignity. Safe escape routes, solidarity and an open society are for us indivisible, together with the "right to participate freely in the cultural life of the community ..." as stated in the Declaration of Human Rights.

FOR A EUROPE OF MANY!

SOLIDARITY INSTEAD OF PRIVILEGE!

ART REMAINS FREE!
