Maik Müller and Verena Harpe from the Martin Roth-Initiative and filmmaker Zeynep Güzel will host a workshop for artists living in exile focussing on strategies for maintaining a sense of personal well-being. [Workshop in English]
Life in exile comes with enormous challenges for artists: arriving at a new place, coping with the repression experienced in the home country, loneliness, finding a new audience. The focus of many exile stays is primarily on artistic creation. But it is also essential to keep an eye on one’s own well-being, especially in order to be able to continue working creatively in the long term. In recent years, the Martin Roth-Initiative, together with others, has gathered experiences of exiled artists and recommendations on this topic. Why is well-being so important when living in exile? What are helpful resources? The workshop wants to offer space for exchange and present helpful tools.
