The ARTIST SUMMIT was dedicated to the unexplored potential of the Dance Platform 2018. The artists’ group HOOD, at that time a fellowship holder at PACT Zollverein, invited 30 dance practitioners to take part in a nine-day critical exchange at Zollverein. The emphasis of the summit was put on exchange between the participating artists in concern of significant issues in dance in Germany and internationally.

The project proposed a forum to explore and challenge practices in the performing arts and potentially embed them in new contexts. Questioning the roles of aesthetics as well as practical working conditions, the incentive seeked to foster self-organization among the individuals present, enabling unexpected outcomes and enacted thoughts that complement, expand and diversify the programme of the Dance Platform 2018.
