With our projects and
themes we react on the movements in this world. We see the deep and rapid changes of our time and the development to a culture and knowledge Society as central
challenge and chance.
Thus the structure of KulturAXE is a flexible one, the working processes dynamic and project oriented. KulturAXE sees itself as a
living entity, whose passion and identity are carried and shared by its members.The first line is marked by the urgency
- to reduce hierarchical
processes in the transnational information flow;
- to promote art- and culture oriented communication and networking as opposed to the ever increasing
economically and profit-based exchange and collaboration.
Just as the axes Johannesburg-Vienna or Vienna-Kiew form part of the programme of
KulturAXE, so do the axes in the urban vicinity - to other initiatives, artists, cultural acteurs and the public. The fostering of these synergies represents a
priority for KulturAXE - such as the “freedom to learn about and choose ideas from different cultures in the world” (Amartya Sen, indian nobel prize
winner, “the intrinsic role of freedoms of different kinds”).
The intercultural tolerance, a prerequisite for universal peace (Tolerance
declaration, UNESCO, 1995), mutual respect, recognition of diversity and equality of cultures, cornerstones of the “project future”.
