“Before nations and religions there were tribes. The definition of tribe implies living as one with the environment and others, to take only what’s needed and to give back. Artists from all over the world, we are still one tribe, and we have a huge role to play in the moral economy, not just the market economy, to influence society through the power that art has to focus on what unites people, fighting the antagonism we witness again and again. Tribe is not about decorative art, but provocative art; not from a lazy popularity point of view, but thought provoking.
Tribe has no political or religious affiliations of any kind; we are only moved by our belief in the power that us artists have in our hands and hearts to change the world for the better.
