- especially in the fields of philosophy and art

(Stichting voor interculturele filosofie en kunst)

is located at Zoetermeer Netherlands; it devotes itself to the exhibition and publication of intercultural art, as well as philosophical research in close contact with different cultures and the publication of philosophical texts.

At present intercultural communication takes place in many forms all over the world.

We depart from the thesis that in the fields of philosophy and arts intercultural communication can happen on the level of equality.

The Foundation for Intercultural Philosophy and Arts works at the clarification of the theoretical principles for such a form of intercultural communication and at practicing it between philosophers and artists from different cultures.
A focus of the research is to engage in dialogues between African and Western philosophies. Partners are among others: the African Universities of Dakar, Abidjan, Ghana, Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, Venda and the Western Universities of Rotterdam, Bochum, Vienna. Close cooperation exists with the Gesellschaft f�r Interkulturelle Philosophie which is resident in Cologne. A key text for the research done is the introduction to the book: Heinz Kimmerle/Henk Oosterling (eds),(Text1) :; Sensus communis in Multi-and Intercultural Perspective. On the Possibility of Common Judgments in Arts and Politics.
