Maghenta shares knowledge and builds a 'bridge for exchange' between artists, scholars and the business world.
Maghenta initiates and supports national and international exchange projects that enable a multitude of voices, aesthetics and approaches in an artist-led process. This leads to cultural enrichment, long-term exchange and the broadening of perspectives.
Maghenta generates such exchanges in the form of residences and small-scale collaborative projects with the potential to grow into long-term projects. We focus on expanding the artist's knowledge and experience, which at a later stage has repercussions on the audience and the entourage of the artists participating in the exchange.
Maghenta considers it necessary that, in addition to the interaction in the creative sector, there is also an exchange between the artistic and academic world. The academic world offers theoretical expertise from substantiated research, to which artists have little access. Vice versa, artists conduct practice-oriented research and as a result illuminate insights in a surprising, unconventional way. Maghenta closes this gap through organising conferences, lecture demonstrations and debate, where we bring both groups together.
