foreign affairs-arts alliances


an intercultural art-collaboration project by ICW

To be a stranger – to become acquainted with each other. This is the tension-field which moves the project from Isabel Czerwenka-Wenkstetten (ICW) „foreign affairs-arts alliances“. It is about an experimental art project where two or more artists with completely different backgrounds meet each other to work together. The collaboration involves a mutual understanding through the artistic process. Steps are taken to confront each other’s prejudices and stereotypes. A process of reconciliation in this confrontation.

2013, foreign affairs-arts alliances Austria-Fiji (Collaboration with Tessa Miller)

2009, foreign affairs-arts alliances Austria-United States of America: Steps to Hope

"hooked and looped" - Performance by ICW

The artist ICW moves through an audience, looking, being a spectator herself. ICW search for and chooses objects of prestige and/or symbolic from the person she looks at. She collects the objects she got with hook and loop fasteners on her skin-colored body suit. Loaded with these objects becoming bulky her movement is slowed down. In further consequence ICW starts to put aside thing by thing. Returning to become a human being in his/her nature. Naked facts.


Dates of Performance:

29.04.2018, Mana Contemporary, Jersey City New York (USA)

19.05.2016, Salon Hofatelier, Vienna (A)


Commissioned Works


The special people in this series are always the clients.  And the work elaborated for the clients is conceptualized and realised especially for their inner and exterior space situation.

The work consists of three parts: The digital photo collage with arylic and oil color, a photography of the room situation without the collage and a photography of the room situation with the collage.
