The HomeBase Project

 

exhibited project USA Launch of Ignatz Bier

 

 

 

The HomeBase Project is a site-specific residency and research program, exploring the notion of home.

 

Operating in the intersection of contemporary art and social change, HomeBase seeks to foster interconnectedness in society while experimenting in meaningful urban living.

 

Each year HomeBase transforms vacant urban sites in neighborhoods undergoing change, into temporary multi-diciplinary ‘homes’  which nurture outstanding artistic exploration, community cultivation, cross-cultural dialogue and education - offered free and open to the public.

 

The driving force behind the project is a growing group of outstanding international artists and social entrepreneurs, who reflect on home as the foundation of humanity and pursue a vision for a healthier society.

 

The HomeBase Project was founded in NYC in 2006 by artist and curator Anat Litwin as a nomadic, non-for-profit, artist-run innitiative. It has since traveled to five locations in NYC and Berlin in collaboration with over sixty international artists, acknowledged at volta 2009 as a ‘New Model for Public Art’ and featured in notable venues and publications such as  the New York Times, and Jerry Saltz ‘Pick of the Week’ in the New York Magazine.

 

We are now establishing the HomeBase LAB - the headquarters for HomeBase in Berlin - and building our next project, HomeBase VI, marked for 2012 in Jerusalem.

 

We are proud to launch at Volta NYC our international art service and products - a direct manifestation of our projects.

The HomeBase Project: IGNATZ BIER

 

Open Forum Lounge, 7th Floors

 

 

HomeBase Project, the non-for-profit, artist-run cultural initiative, presents the U.S. launch of its artistic craft Ignatz Bier, brewed at the HomeBase LAB in Berlin. The LAB is a reappropriation of the origi- nal historic Engelhardt Brewery, renovated by artists and neighbors into an artistic residency and research center. The boutique bottles of Ignatz Bier carry a message of interconnectedness in society and accompany a limited edition of the restaged Ignatz Bier photographs, prints, KunstKompost, and other HomeBase products.
