With the art residencies coming online, more people can now learn about the activities of the art center and discover some interesting facts about it. Users will also be able to see art projects, meet interdisciplinary artists from all over the world and dive into the Berlin independent art scene in just a few clicks.
Some of the most important items of the online exhibitions are:
● An interview under the porch of the Small Church of St Anthony of Padua at Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence with John Strasberg, son of Lee Stasberg, director of the Actors Studio.
● Sustainability in the arts. Visiting artists meeting an Italian Prince in the lands of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
