*foundationClass formed in 2016 at Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin as an art educational platform and resistance toolkit designed to facilitate access to art academies for people who have immigrated to Germany and are affected by racism. *foundationClass embraces ongoing movements for transformation and resilience by evolving toward an environment that calls for sustainable patterns of assembly and solidarity.
The *foundationClass*collective’s practices involve a group of artists with different experiences who met in the *foundationClass educational platform. The experiences accumulated by the *foundationClass over the last five years led its artists to a transformation from belonging to an educational program, to becoming a collective working against the isolation faced in the art world because of its exclusion mechanisms.
*foundationClass*collective is in a transformative space, constantly searching and learning about what a collective could be.
