Exchange program with State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe
We are very pleased to announce the cooperation between the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe and the Foundation Operndorf Afrika.
The cooperation enables students of the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe to spend a period of 1 to 2 months in the African Opera Village in Burkina Faso. The students are invited to use the Opera Village Africa as a living and working space. In return, students from Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso and Accra, Ghana are invited to the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe for a semester abroad.
The first student of the exchange program is Karola Pfandt, who lives and works since December 2018 until the end of January 2019.
The annual exchange program makes the opera village of Africa once again a country-wide cultural encounter and experimentation site for artists, based on the vision of Joseph Beuys’ to settle art back in the middle of life.
