Artist Group Statement

The artist group Global Alien is spread over the globe with a junction point of members in Berlin. Their projects are concerned with the fragmentary nature and e ects of globalization, power relations and cultural identities.

Working with aesthetical visibilities of social and urban realities, Global Aliens’ approach is to invent ways of communication, where the audience is invited to participate in play and game-like performances. The aim of each action is to create a fluid space of performativity, which leads to a permanent exchange with local conditions to overcome borders and meet each other where we are.
