Location: Qinghuangdao, China
Mission: Several western and eastern artists founded the nonprofit association “Dorothea Fleiss & East-West Artists” for professional artists in January 1998. The purpose of our association is to establish a working basis for the cooperation between artists from eastern and western countries. Our aim is to encourage and to improve the cultural and the artistic exchange between outstanding artists originating from different historical backgrounds, defined by eastern and western countries, respectively. A great impact to achieve this aim is granted by artists from all around the world being in close contact to each other and to our association.
With the participation of western and eastern artists in symposia and group exhibitions held in the East or in the West (between 2000 and 2011 in Germany, China, Romania, Hungary, Serbia, Turkey) these artists will contribute to create a broader understanding of the contemporary arts in the respective part of the world.
