A Company Inspires Artist
Office rooms and power plants are not the usual sort of places one can expect to see a graphic artist at work. The innogy Foundation, however, has demonstrated that artists can also find a scope for their activities at such locations. The Foundation's Culture department has launched an International Artist in Residence Programme. The VISIT programme invites artists to carry out projects with some reference to innogy, focussing on the topic of energy and its social relevance.
The presence of the perspectives of artists on innogy should not only provide employees with a new view of their work environment. VISIT will also gradually develop an external impact and provide society with novel ways of looking at energy.
In 2010, the Foundation started with its first two projects – 12 artists have participated to date. For 2017, we are again looking for two scholarship candidates. Applications are open now!
More information now.
