For many years now, the IKG has been organising their annual meetings in different European cities. During two or three days, the International Artists Forum invites all members to explore the respective local art scenes, visiting museums and exhibitions, and attending lectures on contemporary art projects as well as on art-historical issues. Of course, the annual meetings also serve to discuss internal topics, such as the Forum’s involvement in cultural politics. Most of all, however, these gatherings provide a platform where attitudes, ideas, and images meet. These encounters are always challenging the participants to engage in an undetermined process, based on sympathy, curiosity, and open-mindedness.
