Together Apart is an international cultural project by the Hans Farmont Foundation and all twin cities of Düsseldorf - the current location of the foundations headquarter.

In 2020, the focus of the programme will lie on a documentary filmproduction, which will be produced in cooperation with two professional mentors and participants from Haifa, Chiba, Chongqing, Moscow, Palermo, Reading, Warsaw, Chemnitz and Düsseldorf.

The idea is to create a collective video work, which is developed together in an online format over two weeks. At the end of the project, an international short film will be the final result - a curated patchwork stitched together by the project’s participants.

Our Vision


Cultural education plays a key role in fostering the personal development, mind openness, expressiveness and creative abilities of young people.


Music, performance, painting, sculpture, film, dance and literature give young people  the opportunity to better understand themselves and the complex world around them.


Creatively, they can acquire fundamental skills that will allow them to actively shape the world in which they live and work together - both today and in the future.  

With this new and exciting programme the Hans Farmont Foundation would like to expand their activities and integrate a new cultural focus.

The programme will take place in regular intervals from 2020 onwards and will focus on different artistic works and outcomes. This year the focus will be on a collaborative documentary film production. The program is led by the director and head of production of the foundation Milena Wichert, who will be supported by two project mentors - former members of the foundation’s programme and professional Artists themselves.
