The 10dence platform Get out of your skull project initially has been developed during the coronavirus outbreak and the lockdowns that rapidly pushed the art world to make a transformative shift towards alternative stimulating initiatives. The project united a large group of artists during the Covid-19 pandemic with all its restrictions and problematic effects on their individual art practices as well as the international art-world. Aiming primarily on providing a positive vibe, to stimulate creative processes, to provide a psychological boost, to re-ignite a possibility to communicate and to network as well as to generate a bright light at the end of the corona tunnel during these darkened times.
