Drawing on the experience made in two intercultural workshops in 2007 and 2008, three students from Bremen travelled to Cairo in early 2010, seeking new insights into the realities of cultural dialogue. Their discussions with young artists, gallerists, and cultural innovators traced the potentials, limitations, and contradictions of the issue.
“Beyond Identity” stands for a platform that seeks to shift perspectives in contemporary intercultural dialogue through subjective experience and face-to-face encounters. The project’s origins lie in an initiative by designer Andrea Rauschenbusch to establish cooperative ties between the Faculty of Art and Design at the University of the Arts Bremen and the faculties of Applied Arts and Art Education at Helwan University Cairo.
In its dialogical and discursive approach, Beyond Identity is an attempt to explore and pioneer, within the context of a German-Egyptian dialogue, new perspectives in exchange and collaboration.\
