Objective of the Project

Deai/setkaní in Prague, Atelier Nord in Oslo and Skaftfell - Centre for Visual Art in I Seyisfjörur, Iceland.

The conceptual framework of the subproject is the transformation of the landscape, the dynamic relationships between nature and civilization today.

The results of meetings, cooperations and workshops will be summarized and presented during the symposium and the exhibition in Prague Comunication Space Skolska 28. The symposium includes contributions from the field of contemporary art theory, ecology and environmental sciences.

The exhibition will summarize the results from the workshops and art residencies at locations in North Bohemia brown coal mine area, Iceland (Seyisfjörur) and northern Norway.

The catalog will be published and distributed with the video documentaries (DVD - video and audio tracks). Linking three art residencies and workshops with exhibition assumes longer term preparation to ensure the successful production of the project.
