This interdisciplinary and intercultural artists exchange was created in 2010 with the idea that in order for art to grow and flourish, it must be exposed to different perspectives and experiences. Each year a new group of thirty artists are alternately hosted either in Salem, New York, or Salem, Germany to inspire one another, using new relationships to create a more in-depth understanding of the artistic process.This interdisciplinary and intercultural artists exchange was created in 2010 with the idea that in order for art to grow and flourish, it must be exposed to different perspectives and experiences. Each year a new group of thirty artists are alternately hosted either in Salem, New York, or Salem, Germany to inspire one another, using new relationships to create a more in-depth understanding of the artistic process. Over the initiative’s first three years, artists representing a number of different mediums, generations, and cultural backgrounds participated. In 2012, painters, sculptors, musicians, writers, and multi-media artists from all over the world converged on the grounds of Schloss Salem (Salem Castle) on Lake Constance, Salem, Germany. During the three week residency, participating artists exchanged ideas, expanding their creative approach both as individuals and together as a group. 2013 will mark the fourth year of this exchange, with artists from all over the world once again returning to work and live at Salem Art Works. Because of the varied spaces and architecture that comprise Salem Art Works, artists are able to envision new ideas and expand upon previously created concepts while at SAW. Taking place August 8th – 28th, artists will have time to explore, challenge, and create, culminating in a group exhibition to be held in September. Quelle: SAW

Marcus Schwier, image architect. Born in 1964 in Düsseldorf, Germany, Marcus Schwier discovered his fascination for photography while in school. After earning his architecture degree in 1985, he worked in various architectural offices before returning to school in 1993 — this time to formally study photography at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. While at the Academy, Schwier experimented with camera obscuratechniques. Today, the freelancer works on both commercial and artistic projects, concentrating on landscape and architectural photography. Schwier has balanced the artistic work in his studio in Düsseldorf with his global career. On the one hand, he brings the highest standards to the images he shoots as a commercial photographer working on advertising concepts, brochures, and campaigns for such clients as Mercedes Benz, Audi, Thyssen-Krupp, and Deutsche Bank. On the other hand, he doesn’t lose sight of his artistic ambitions and is always looking for new and surprisingly compelling shots. His ground-breaking “Nightshots,” begun using film photography, builds on his Academy experience of shooting long exposures that emphasize the phenomenon of the night itself more than the subjects of the shots. Schwier explains that the nocturnal scene reduces an image to its barest meaning, since the most essential things are already lit; but almost as an afterthought, his long-exposure shots also succeed in bringing light into otherwise pitch-dark corners and niches, uncovering the strangeness of time and moment. Schwier is the recipient of major prizes and awards, including the DG Bank International Photography Award.
