JEANSKAMEL is a gallery – and more. The gallery displays fresh products made from old jeans: bags, baskets, covers and paintings. All products are made in collaboration with refugees in Salzburg. What is the – and more part? JEANSKAMEL as a micro-café is offering a cup of coffee, a brownie or a hoummous dish. Here you can use our job exchange for refugees. At the JEANSKAMEL you can attend Oral History nights, nano concerts, theaters and performances.
April 11, 2015 at 11h in front of St. Elisabeth church, Salzburg.
Dorfofen / Mashrou Forn is an installation in public space and a social sculpture.
For the inauguration we gather in the garden in front of the church and bake body parts and eat them up together. Coming from the traditional art of baking when neighbors shared an oven and were baking bread every morning and making sweet bakery every now and then.
From then on this wood-heated oven is be available all year to bring your dough, bake bread, pizza and meet with friends and strangers in open sky.
Come with your dough!

Artist and human beings confronted with the question of responsibility and involvement in political matters. Everybody can come and take part.
A well mixed and matching group showed up and discussed how we can find creative solutions for political situations which we want to make visible and/or change.
We cannot let the politicians shape the world, as we can see. Art has the power to take over. Also, all other professions are asked to bring in more responsibility.
Art can move forward, it has to free itself from the strings of the stock market. The unholy bond of art and assets is never enough questioned and disentangled. For the last centuries art was feeding the institutions leaving the artist unpaid. Artists from now on choose their own partners. By the means of art we can free ourselves. This is the new purpose of art.
Most curators still put their shows in national boxes, label the artist by their nationality or eye color. This is wrong.
Art is beyond nations. Art without borders. Artists without borders. We play with stereotypes but we don´t serve them.
Art expressing any purpose can still be beautiful, but doesn´t have to be.
