Newest Art Organisation is a citizens initiative with the goal of organizing exhibitions and more in collaboration with refugee artists and artisans. Refugees from Syria, Iraq and Eriteria present their work in the exhibition Take Flight (April 30-July 9th, CBK Amsterdam). Take Flight is a unique and surprising collection of recent work by a group of 19 international artists. Take flight presents for the first time the driven work of artists who have fled countries under the siege of war-torn countries. The work presented in this exhibition has been made under stressful and difficult circumstances; relying on scarce materials and tools. These individuals have nonetheless found a way to create and express themselves.
During the exhibition one refugee and one migrant from Amsterdam Zuid-Oost provide tours and will share their stories. After the Take Flight exhibition we would like to provide tours by these storytellers in more musea or at other exhibitions.
Newest Art Organisation is founded by Jennifer Protas • Geke Oosterhof • Mustafa Gulkara
