Description 

The VISIT programme of the RWE Foundation promotes artists by offering them a free space for pursuing individual design work. At the invitation of the Foundation, the selected artists develop their respective project over a period of about three months. Depending on the topic, this takes place at a German or also possibly an international location of the company. The artistic work should have an explicit reference to the topic of energy and its social relevance. The programme is aimed to initiate a reciprocal involvement between the company and artists. Interdisciplinary approaches and switching perspectives promote the understanding of different lines of thought and help us to learn from one another. RWE is one of Europe’s five leading electricity and gas companies. In geographical terms, the Foundation’s work focuses on North Rhine-Westphalia, especially the Ruhr district, as RWE has historical roots in this region. Funds from RWE Foundation also go towards projects outside of this region and in Europe.
