Open Walls Junior /
Istanbul 2010 + Ruhr 2010

The AkryloNumerik collective (France), the Potporus Art Center (Germany), le M.U.R (France), 41’ 29’ Istanbul (Turkey) have solicited the European Commission to create a shared cross-platform for urban cultures through artistic, cultural and university cooperation between Turkey, France and Germany in 2011. As a preview of the "CrossRoads" project, Open Walls junior will make its first presentation in Amber Festival. Connected between Istanbul 2010 and Ruhr 2010, this unique mirror networked installation, based on the original drawing and animation software LopArtHDTouch, will allow the artists and the public to create, in real time, common artworks beyond geographic, linguistic and cultural barriers.

Specific moments called “CrossBridge” will showcase artists creating a shared work on a common theme on November 5th, at 19:00 during the opening of amberFestival. In this event Herne, Pottporus Festival, opening of Billboard 32’ 18’ and amberFestival will be connected via Open Wall Junior.
