We are an association of artists who want to make a positive difference in the cities in which we reside. We work in cooperation with institutions and communities and welcome people from various backgrounds and disciplines in order to develop all sorts of community-oriented artistic projects.
UAC is an avant-garde art platform which promotes art as a tool for social transformation and which aims at inspiring creative thinking and being in everyday contexts. On the local level its projects and workshops aim at building more caring and participatory communities while on a global scale it tries to understand and engage with sociopolitical and ecological issues such as the Anthropocene or the immigration crisis.
We believe that through visual, conceptual, performative, etc. arts citizens can re-imagine and explore in new and creative ways their relationship to others and to nature, strengthen social ties, and innovatively transform public spaces for more plural and egalitarian cities, all of which can have positive effects on the globalised world we live in.
