Dérive Berlin is a 2 months residency awarded by Belius Foundation Berlin in collaboration with the Research Centre for Art & Design (CAD), Avans University of Applied Sciences, Breda/Den Bosch. The award is granted twice annually; each time to one student currently enrolled in Avans University’s Art Academy St. Joost or in one of the Communication and Multimedia Design programs. Dérive Berlin honours excellent performance that – in the eyes of the selection committee – qualifies the candidate for the program.
Imad Gebrayel – selected to work in Berlin in March/April 2016
Through this residency, I would like to explore urban adaptation systems Berlin is organically generating as a reaction to the demographic change and the flow of refugees. Also, I am planning to work with these minorities on a process that expresses a lot of their everyday dynamics maximizing potentials for a fully inclusive citizenship.
