Cafuné is a Brazilian word for physically fondling somebody’s head, playing on the intellectual stimuli in exploring themes regarding the relationship between the Northern and Southern hemisphere.
Cafuné is an independently run project space in Berlin, dedicated to the experimentation and development of contemporary dialogues between the northern and southern hemispheres.
Among todays elites, assertions about the contrasting merits of diverse human groups are almost always couched in terms of historical differences between cultures.
This project aims to work on the demystification of such beliefs.
Our vision explores the idea that the predominant dialogue surrounding diversity between opposing geographical locations reflects a juxtaposed understanding of fundamental similarities.
By bringing together artists/curators/speakers from different continents, the space will serve as a cultural melting pot and as an opportunity for collaboration between creative multidisciplinary peoples.
