The Ziggurat Project is an artist collective, working together since 2013. Their main interests are about cross-sectoral collaborations, site-specific works and projects focusing on social issues.
Arboretum aimed to establish and strengthen meaningful relationships between generations. The collectives paired up and collaborated with individual artists who have wider experience in the arts. The six pairs were working sometimes alone, sometimes together in a group. There were several workshops devised in order to understand each other and their expertise. These workshops acted as the tools for knowledge transfer. They helped to formulate a real community from artists who would have not met otherwise.
Arboretum developed a methodology that helped the generations to understand and embrace each other. The whole creative process will be exhibited and the results disseminated in Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art in Budapest between 30 January and 18 March 2018.
Arboretum was a collaboration between Ludwig Museum – Museum of Contemporary Art Budapest and KristofLab, Ziggurat Project, Pro Progressione, Műhely Alapítvány and Máté Czakó, Máté Kőrösi as part of the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) Open Call for a socially engaged commission.
