Month of Art Practice 2023: Alternative Mobility

Mobility changes the world in all aspects. What does mobility mean in the face of unstable environmental, political and social conditions? 

This year, Month of Art Practice (MAP) invited artists with a diversity of perspectives to explore the topic from a personal to a global level, creating different narratives and nuanced images. MAP is an annual international exchange project dedicated to promoting contemporary art initiated and has been organised by Heritage Space in Hanoi, Viet Nam since 2015.

This culminates in an exhibition titled "The Alternative Mobility", a collaboration between Hochschule für Künste Bremen (HfK) and Heritage Space and part of the BMBF Collaborative Research Project Bremen Goes Sustainable - BreGoS.  

Taking place from November to December this year as part of MAP 2023, the contemporary art exhibition, led jointly by Nguyễn Anh Tuấn (Heritage Space Hanoi) and Ingo Vetter (HfK Bremen), will feature the works of Vietnamese and international artists. This exhibition is also a part of the Hanoi Creative Design Festival 2023 with the theme "Flow"

As part of MAP 2023, a group of international artists and curators worked together with local artists and students at both Hanoi and Bremen. 

The results of MAP 2023 will be shown in parallel in Bremen, Germany and Hanoi, Viet Nam in two exhibitions at the end of November 2023, featuring works by artists and students from Germany, Japan, Korea, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and Viet Nam.
