Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst (NGBK)

The New Society for Visual Arts (NGBK) is an art society with 850 members, people with different professions and ambitions: cultural workers, scientists, political activists, architects, artists, art theoreticians, sociologists, media studies experts, students… Through their work as volunteers they all go to make up the organisation's distinctive structure, in which all project-related decisions are taken at grass-roots and realized jointly. All NGBK exhibitions and events are conceived by project groups made up of members of the society.

The exhibition the Urban Cultures of Global Prayers is a project by the Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst; cooperation partner is Camera Austria. The exhibition is also part of the project Global Prayers - Redemption and Liberation in the City (Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Viadrina Universität Frankfurt/Oder, Forum Transregionale Studien, Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung, Goethe-Institut) und was initiated by metroZones e.V.
