2012 marks the 10 Year anniversary of the European Exchange Academy (EEA). In celebration, a group exhibition featuring over thirty internationally established and upcoming young artists will take place in Flutgraben e.V. in Berlin.
The show will take place between the 17th of August and the 19th of August.
Opening Friday, 17th of August at 8 PM.
The European Exchange Academy, founded in 2003, is a five week intensive art course which takes place yearly in Beelitz-Heilstatten, a former tuberculosis-clinic near Berlin. Over the past ten years approximately 400 art-students from over 40 different nationalities from internationally renowned art schools have participated in the project. Each year, the participants are guided by 10-15 resident and guest advisors and artists, headed by Amsterdam based artist Harry Heyink.
The EEA alumni group show is curated out of project proposals from former participants and advisors of the EEA. Mixing together installations, prints, two dimensional work, sculpture, video projections and performances the show will reflect the devotion and spirit that embody the communitiy and network founded through the EEA.

The application period for EEA12-TR has come to an end. We have received an overwhelming number of interesting submissions from people worldwide and we are evaluating them at this very moment.
Participants selected for the second round, will all be contacted soon with instructions on the rest of the process.
Thank you all for your enthusiasm and interest in EEA12-TR.
The Title of this years European Exchange Academy was “Borders: Reach & Move” and that’s what we did with the help of great advisers and new-found friends. During the intense working period we all tried to reach new territory. Our working methods changed, we all tried new mediums and styles and unforeseen collaborations came about.
The show is a collection of works that were either made during the exchange, are a remix of the work we did or works that are still very much influenced by the new working methods that we developed during that period. This exhibition was a great opportunity to come back together as a group and to reflect on the impact that the EEA had on us.
We would love to see you at our exhibition opening and to enjoy some fine tunes and some nice typical EEA food.
See you there!
And we told you not come!
