Art Works! European Culture of Resistance and Liberation is a long-term interdisciplinary project combining artistic research, political and cultural youth education, and remembrance cultures. In international exchange meetings, artists, scientists, art institutions, and NGOs engage young people in co-creative thought processes and artistic practice dealing with resistance against (European) fascisms. The practice-based project has set itself the goal of investigating cultural assets as means of resistance and liberation based on concrete and local examples and of reviewing historical works and their modes of action concerning the present, based on the thesis that learning from history for the present is only possiblethrough independent research, critical analysis, and creative application.
