CULTURUNNERS: Redefining Art Without Borders

CULTURUNNERS is a global project – or to use the preferred hype-word of the times, movement – ‘collaborating with artists to share stories across contested borders.’

CULTURUNNERS organises exhibitions and events which feature the work of artists from warring lands. The art primarily deals with issues like discrimination, prejudice and persecution by channeling these maladies into projects that unite different people.

The whole movement is fluid in its approach, favouring a multitude of engaging action over a singular dynamic.

As such, exhibitions take place all over the world: in magazines, galleries, and disputed territories; art resides on canvas or in the actions of the artist (and everywhere in between), and the only way to really keep up with CULTURUNNERS is by attaching yourself to its digital footprint.

Meaning we should check out some posts from its Instagram now:

CULTURUNNERS may be diffuse in its approach, but its overriding message is clear: Art has the power to lift us above the borders we build between one another.
