2a. Mission Statement: 
Throughout the past 25 years, Lilo Kinne presented works of art, and held art events/exhibits of her own art in cooperation with artists from all over the world (paintings, photographs, multimedia installations, videos, art performances, and body painting). Since the 1970’s, she has developed international art projects with ART SPACEs in different cultures, where she arranged exhibitions and held art performances. ART SPACE - STUTTGART (1975 - 1978) ART SPACE - SAN FRANCISCO (1979) ART SPACE - TOKYO (1980) ART SPACE - FRANKFURT (1981) ART SPACE - PARIS (1982 - 1989) ART SPACE - NEW YORK (1989 - Present) In the ART SPACEs in the different countries, art exhibitions & art events, with MULTIDIMENSIONAL ART PERFORMANCES were held during opening receptions. From 1976 on, Lilo Kinne held MULTIDIMENSIONAL ART PERFORMANCES with DANCE & THEATER. While in Stuttgart (1976-80) and Frankfurt (1981), Germany; then in Paris, France (1982-89), and later in New York City (1989-Present), she choreographed for multi-cultural groups of people of all skin colors, and called this Dance & Theater group LILO KINNE MULTIDIMENSIONAL ART PERFORMANCE GROUP. In 1985, Lilo Kinne as the Founder of the ART SPACE participated at the INTERNATIONAL DANCE FESTIVAL in Cannes at the Cotes d’Azur, France. At this event, she showed her MULTIDIMENSIONAL ART PERFORMANCES and choreographed while dancing. At this meeting of international contemporary dancers & dance companies from all over the world, Lilo Kinne demonstrated that choreography can become totally intuitive work, where the choreographer and dancer become one and the same, creating the piece while letting the energy flow freely through the body. Statement of Lilo Kinne: "Since every moment in time is different, and all is always in flow, things develop in synchronicity. My art performance/dance & theater is never repeated in the same way. Every time I perform, I perform uniquely and intuitively. I let the energy flow through me." For the first time, in 1985, on an international level, in the field of contemporary choreography/dance, she presented, explained & performed before leading international dance companies such as the Stuttgart Ballet (Stuttgart), Ballet of the 20th Century (Brussels), Bella Levitsky Dance Theater (Los Angeles), among others, her concept of MULTIDIMENSIONAL DANCE, which, as she defined it as a philosopher, shows life in its flow within and through the body of a human being. Writing has been part of Lilo Kinne’s life and one of the ways in which she expresses herself. Writing also became part of numerous of Lilo Kinne’s paintings, especially since the 1970’s, when she declared her art "Multidimensional Art". "WRITTEN WORD" as well as "SPOKEN WORD" are part of Lilo Kinne’s art and are inseparable from her as well as from her works and so is the ART SPACE as her creation! Since 30 years, Lilo Kinne dedicated her life to the creation and activities of the ART SPACE’s in different cultures: ART SPACE - STUTTGART (1975 - 1978) ART SPACE - SAN FRANCISCO (1979) ART SPACE - TOKYO (1980) ART SPACE - FRANKFURT (1981) ART SPACE - PARIS (1982 - 1989) ART SPACE - NEW YORK (1989 - Present) In 1989, the ART SPACE-NEW YORK was created and was at first situated on Spring Street, then between Prince and Spring Street on Lafayette Street in SoHo. In her large paintings as well as in her videos, Lilo Kinne describes the human existence in its essence, and explains the nature and characteristics of human life in the middle of the entire flow of things. Lilo Kinne loves HUMANKIND and cares for each individual, which makes it a special experience to meet her in person. LOVE and COMPASSION are her nature, and she is very conscious about LIFE in general. There is nothing simple about that...Complexity is what she teaches and lives every day of her life! Many artists from all over the United States as well as from all over the world have come to work with Lilo Kinne and have accomplished projects with her in the fields of painting, dance/choreography, film/video, theater which developed in the past 2 years into her Spoken Word/Hip-Hop Project. Dancers from different cultures have performed with her on stage, choreopgraphing while dancing with Lilo Kinne. Film producers have co-created films with her which document the human existence in its synchronicity.

Since more then 30 years, I have financed the ART SPACE’s and have done my best to keep them alive to have as many artists of different disciplines benefit from its activities. I am now 55 years old and feel that there is a need of some kind of support. Tens of thousands of artists from all over the world were in contact with me throughout the past more then 30 years. I have kept most of the names, addresses and phone numbers of those individuals on file. Within the time frame of 30 years, I have created an enormous network of artistic people from all over the world, having also traveled extensively worldwide. I have a need for cataloguing my data, since one of my hardrives’ partitions can not be read any more and the data of years will need to be introduced once more into a system. Urgently, I will need help in form of people who will be able to work with me on this project of saving valuable data from many years, which would otherwise be lost.
