ON-AiR: Reflecting on the Mobility of Artists in Europe

By Jenny Brownrigg, Pau Cata Marles, Anna Detheridge, Lotte Geeven, Rebecca Gordon Nesbitt, Erik Hagoort, Ludwig Henne, Marijke Hoogenboom, Wim Legrand, Marija Mojca Pungercar, Bojana Panevska, Bertan Pocesta Selim, Ilgim Veryeri-Alaca, Heidi Vogels and Yeb Wiersma, 2012, 167 pp.

The final publication of the European project ON-AiR: Reflecting on the Mobility of Artists in Europe is published. This publication presents the outcomes of the ON-AiR project (workshops on mobility and artist-in-residence opportunities and regional information on mobility from the 18 ON-AiR partners) as well as 10 essays about cultural mobility and 3 interviews with artists who experienced mobility in different ways.

With this publication the partners of the ON-AiR project aim to take you on a journey, reflecting on the current state of mobility in which the artists in Europe operate and their art flourishes. It also includes a summary of the results and outcomes of the ON-AiR project.

An Editorial Team consisting of 18 mobility experts from the different regions of Europe, all working as partners in ON-AiR, proposed 10 topics or thoughts for a more in-depth approach. Ten essays by authors from across Europe are the result. The content and format of the essays differ enormously: varying from a letter written to a resident artist, to an examination of the much-discussed 'brain drain' phenomenon in Eastern Europe, to drawings from a pirate rabbit reflecting on mobility.

Parts of the ON-AiR publication are available for free download from the ON-AiR website www.on-air-mobility.org
