Art Isn’t Born at the Petting Zoo

Art actually requires friction, heat, open discourse. And just such an atmosphere—in which the creative urge, ideas, and artistic aspirations mix, repel each other, and instantly mix once more—represents an opportunity that Marion and Erwin Soravia strive to afford artists from all over the world.

The couple’s own private initiative soart provides artists with both working and residency grants while also organizing and realizing exhibitions along with the production of accompanying publications.

The objective? To bring together interesting people, network them across the various disciplines, and promote a mode of exchange that is characterized by tolerance, respect, and freedom as well as engendering intercultural and above all lively exchange. Because true art isn’t born at the petting zoo.
