Prōtocollum added 107 new photos to the album: PRŌTOCOLLUM’s launch event in Dakar, Senegal — with Dickersbach Kunstverlag and 5 others at Radisson Blu.
May 9, 2016

The second issue of PRŌTOCOLLUM art journal (, the international survey of contemporary non-Western visual art, art narratives and art history, was presented during an international launch event that was held in Dakar, Senegal, on May 8th in connection with the Dakar Biennale of Contemporary Art. As a number of artists who contributed to PRŌTOCOLLUM have also participated in the Dakar Biennale, it was important for us to use this opportunity and arrange a ...lunch event for PRŌTOCOLLUM here in Dakar. Inspirational conversations and interesting exchanges took place among our guests, not only about the various exhibitions and talks of the Biennale, but also about the topics and issues that are the focus points of our project and research like the growing role of non-Western contemporary art in the international art discourse and how to further strengthen the global awareness of contemporary art from regions like Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, Asia and Eastern Europe.

PRŌTOCOLLUM art journal convenes the relevant voices from diverse countries and regions around the world by directly connecting to the artists in their home regions. Counteracting the opinion-shaping influence of art institutions in Europe or North America, PRŌTOCOLLUM provides a forum for the ideas, perspectives, visions and perceptions of artists and art scenes located outside of the Western hemisphere, striving to achieve a multi-faceted and balanced picture of contemporary global artistic practice, art narratives and art history. The inaugural issue of PRŌTOCOLLUM was launched in November 2014, with contributions from 72 visual artists and art collectives from 54 countries. The second issue for 2015/16 that took centre stage during the lunch event in Dakar contains contributions by 92 visual artists and artist collectives from 53 countries.

Many thanks to all of you who joined us for PRŌTOCOLLUM's event in Dakar! I am especially proud that my home continent Africa has hosted both such a successful Biennale for Contemporary Art and our meeting with dedicated talks and motivating discussions among a very interesting circle of artists, art professionals and art scholars.

Date: 8 May 2016
Venue: Restaurant L'Avenue (Radisson Blu Hotel Dakar, Senegal)

Ein einzelnes Ereignis kann tausende unterschiedliche Erzählungen hervorrufen. Wir alle haben kulturell geprägte Perspektiven und stereotype Vorstellungen fremder Lebenswelten. Echte Begegnungen auf Augenhöhe sind daher selten und nicht immer selbstverständlich.

Prōtocollum’s first official international launch event was held in Moscow, Russia, on June 9th. Art critics, curators, museum directors and some of the journal’s contributing artists came together to meet and talk about PRŌTOCOLLUM’s inaugural issue, but also about the current state of contemporary art in Russia under the circumstances of a growing antagonism between Russia and the Western world. PRŌTOCOLLUM’s focus on non-Western contemporary visual art therefore gained an ...additional equivocal meaning here in Moscow. The event took place on the O2 Lounge on the rooftop of Moscow’s Ritz Carlton hotel with sweeping beautiful views of the inner city’s skyline and the Kremlin. It was held on the eve of the opening of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Gorky Park which convened a number of international art professionals in the city. Both the venue and the timing made Moscow a perfect place for PRŌTOCOLLUM's international launch. A lot of interesting and productive conversations followed in the days after the event when I again met PRŌTOCOLLUM's guests and all the others who were invited, but couldn't come to our event, during various ceremonies on the occasion of the Garage museum opening.

Many thanks to all of you who joined us for PRŌTOCOLLUM's event in Moscow. I appreciate your ideas and suggestions which contributed immensely to a lively discussion. I am encouraged by all the motivating feedback I received from all of you. I am confident about a successful further development of PRŌTOCOLLUM and I can't wait to see all of you and the interesting art scene in Moscow again, very soon!
