Our European artists in residency for 2017-18, Stephany Müller and Klauss Eric Dietl will collaborate over a 12 month period to produce work especially for BE FESTIVAL. Stephanie is a visual artist and sociological researcher, with an interest in experiments and improvisation. Klaus is a visual artist with a background in literature and cinematography.
At BE they will explore how technological change has made it possible for almost anyone, anywhere to be part of the global interchange of endless communication.
With the endless stream of words and images through the press, social media and elsewhere — are we any more engaged or does over-saturation lead us to simply switch off? Their work explores these questions, and proposes ways in which artists can try to counteract this process of mass disengagement.
