Vision Forum is a non-profit organisation that carries out research, meetings and production in contemporary visual art. The focus lies on moving across both geographical, disciplinary and borders and we have carried out projects on all the continents of the world with local partner organisations. We organise seminars, exhibitions, performances events and create publications often in collaboration with practitioners in other artistic fields as well as researchers in the sciences and humanities. Since its inception in 2008, Vision Forum has focused on higher education. But in recent times, more attention has been given to develop new pedagogical strategies. These include ongoing projects like Morgondagens Konstpublik where we focus on the young and Riding the donkey backwards where we work with refugees across Europe.
Vision Forum is a network of visual artists and curators from Europe who work together with creators in other artistic fields along with researchers in the humanities and sciences. Together we engage in research, production and education. We work towards having a totally horizontal organisation where the creators and researchers together develop the program of the organisation.
Artist Per Hüttner is the director of the organisation since 2009. We currently collaborate with Sara Giannini, Susanne Ewerlöf, Wooloo; researchers Stephen Whitmarsh, Robert Oostenveld; pedagogues Anne Klontz, Cecilia Ahlqvist and musician Jean-Louis Huhta. We are currently shifting focus in our project portfolio towards projects with collaborators with more diverse backgrounds. You will find who participates by browsing our Current Projects and find out more about the new projects that we are developing with neuroscientists, migrants and lawyers.
Most of us are based in Europe and we often collaborate with institutions and creators in Asia, Australia, Africa and the Americas.
