The edition "Kabul Art Project" is a collaboration between the European artists of ARTSURPRISE and the Afghan artists of Kabul Art Project.
Each ARTSURPRISE box in this edition will contain one artwork from Afghanistan and the artwork by a European artist as the answer - the artists communicate through their art. Subject of this edition is "Contact".
Kabul Art Project was founded in early 2013 and is promoting and supporting contemporary Afghan artists. The first complete group exhibition of all 26 artists was held in Hamburg in October 2013 and caused a lot of interest in contemporary Afghan art, which had not been exhibited in Germany before.
The collaboration between ARTSURPRISE and Kabul Art Project is a further step to spread Afghan art and to get an insight into the thoughts and feelings of this new generation of artists from a country, where art had to be re-born only a few years ago, and to let artists from very different cultures communicate in this universal language.
