The pandemic has given us a moment to pause, to take stock. This caesura has granted us the mental space to question a fast-paced lifestyle, social inequalities and ecological imbalances. How do we want to live together now and in future? How can we live out solidarity with its inherent diversity, create local alliances and ultimately make these tangible through art?

The exhibitions and installations opened on the occasion of this year’s summer festival can be seen in the spaces of Akademie Schloss Solitude until 14 November. Under the motto »Solidarity«, positions of current and former fellows from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Germany, Georgia, Italy, Japan, Cameroon, Colombia, Mexico, Namibia, the Philippines, Poland, Romania. Hungary and the USA.

The title of the exhibition is derived from a project by Solitude fellows dealing with the International Socialist Congress in Stuttgart in 1907. »I was, I am, I will be« are the words of Rosa Luxemburg, with which she called for political resistance and solidarity at that time. Today, they are a reminder of her work as well as food for thought for our future. What means can we use to live solidarity across borders?
