The Avant/Garde Diaries
Posted on Juli 18, 2011 by Julia Schiller
An interesting new project initiated by Mercedes-Benz:
“The Avant/Garde Diaries is a digital portrait magazine that documents personal views on the avant-garde. Rather than labeling people avant-garde, we try to see through the eyes of people, who we admire for what they do. For each article we ask contributors from the creative field to introduce someone or something they consider to be ahead of time and explain why.
The result will be a compendium of various, very personal perspectives that disclose new ways of thinking and spread inspiration.
Corresponding to this digital platform, three-day festivals will be hosted in metropolises around the world. Each event will be curated by an expert from the creative industry, showcasing his or her personal view on avant-garde. For information on upcoming and past events please check the Event category on the site.”
