Micel Artist Lab

Latin American performing artists in Germany

MicelArtistLab is a network for knowledge exchange among Latin American artists in Germany, focusing on challenges, visibility, and their contributions to the German cultural scene. How can LatinX artists in the independent scene in Germany build new audiences?
The laboratory included various forms of exchange, surveys, and reflection. It involved 2 digital meetings, a 5-day laboratory in the “Cordillera space”, an online survey, an intervention at HKW Berlin, a podcast, and a publication documenting the entire process and results. 

MicelArtistLab is a first step in collaboration to collectively grow as performing artists in Germany. The laboratory emphasized the need for unity so that this network (mycelium) can grow and be sustained.
