This weekend marks the conclusion of the 2019 event series "Übergänge/ Nachbarschaft", in which the IGBK focused on the cross-border cooperation of artists on the transitions between Germany and its neighboring countries.

It is to be elaborated on which funding opportunities, and in particular EU funds, exist for regional cooperation among artists from neighboring countries, and how this affects local artistic cooperation.

At the same time, the question is asked: What does the term "border" mean in 2019 artistically and politically in Europe, especially against the background of new nationalisms within the European Union and now facing Brexit? What new boundaries exist and how do artists deal with them?
