‘I’m not interested in how people move, I’m interested in what makes them move.’ Pina Bausch

ART HAPPENS is driven by the conviction that artists have the talent to create visionary works that impact on the way we view our world, our times and ourselves.

ART HAPPENS wants to get this work on the stage. Moreover, the worldwide distribution of productions is incredibly exciting. International cultural exchange is the strongest motivation. Not only does it teach us so much, it keeps us connected and makes us cross boundaries.

ART HAPPENS operates worldwide in close cooperation with art institutions. 

ART HAPPENS focuses on arts management in the performing arts:

distribution of performances both nationally and internationally

supporting the development of projects according to the artists’ needs and aspirations

looking for opportunities for co-production funding to support the creation of new performances.
