The Academy of the Arts of the World is a unique, Cologne-based institution founded in 2012 with the aim of fostering inter- and transcultural dialogue between the arts.
As a dynamic and interdisciplinary, albeit non-curricular platform, the Academy engages with issues of contemporary global culture and politics such as the trans-border movement of people, aesthetic responsibility, hospitality, non-Western, pre-modern art, concepts and practices. Bridging local and global perspectives, the Academy sets out to initiate critical debate and to create spaces of possibility for diverse aesthetic communities.
The Academy is constituted by an assembly of visual artists, musicians, choreographers, theatre directors, filmmakers, writers, curators and other cultural producers from different artistic backgrounds and geographical locations.
