Orientation trip 2019
Each year, the Mondriaan Fund organizes an orientation trip for visual artists and art mediators from the Netherlands to foreign, upcoming and interesting regions. The trips are aimed at exchange and cooperation between visual art professionals. The goal of this orientation travel is to extend international networks and contacts, and to stimulate the international dialogue between art professionals.
The 2019 trip took place from 21 October until 2 November, with the destinations United Arab Emirates (Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah) and Pakistan (Karachi and Lahore). The trip was organized in cooperation with Frame Contemporary Art Finland, the Danish Arts Agency and Pro Helvetia as well as in close collaboration with the Dutch embassies in the United Arab Emirates and Pakistan. In total, 15 people participated in the trip, including six participants from the Netherlands selected by the Mondriaan Fund: two artists and four mediators.
