Artists at Risk

Artists at Risk (AR), based in Helsinki, is a global network of art institutions, municipalities, state institutions and NGOs that helps persecuted artists safely leave their countries of origin, procures travel documents, provides legal assistance, arranges residencies and curates contextualizing projects. For several years, Schauspielhaus Zürich has been in exchange with Artists at Risk (AR) and the audience of Schauspielhaus has provided donations to Artists at Risk (AR). The next stage of the collaboration between Schauspielhaus Zürich and Artists at Risk (AR) is the Conversations with Artists at Risk series. Each conversation in this series is conceptualized as a portrait of an individual artist whose practice, life, and art have been affected by violent conflict, political oppression, or personal persecution.

All contributions are collected in the Schauspielhaus Journal:
