From 2 until 17 September 2018 the orientation trip to South-Africa (Johannesburg en Cape Town) and Zimbabwe (Harare and Bulawayo) will take place. The Mondriaan Fund has been organizing orientation trips for visual artists and mediators  since 2004. The trips are aimed at exchange and cooperation between visual art professionals. The goal is to extend international networks and contacts and to stimulate the international dialogue between art professionals. The trip is organized in cooperation with Flanders Arts Institute (since 2007), the Danish Arts Agency and Pro Helvetia (since 2011).

This year’s participants are: Anke Bangma (director TENT), Frédérique Bergholtz (director If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution), Patricia Kaersenhout (visual artist), Florian Weigl (curator V2_, Lab for the Unstable Media), Farren van Wyk (visual artist) and Annet Zondervan (director CBK Zuidoost, Amsterdam). Mediators and visual artists who were interested to participate in the trip could apply via an open call.

During the travel a blog will be updated.
