7th Inter-format Symposium Along Lines
Nida Art Colony (LT)
May 19-22nd, 2017
The 7th Inter-format Symposium Along Lines reflected on the line as a very basic visual element and medium of knowledge. In the geopolitical context, the shoreline and borders of the Curonian spit, a group of artists, philosophers, scientists, dancers and musicians were invited to reflect on the contemporary means of the line facing fluctuating information, political changes, new territories and body movements. Using the line as a metaphoric as well as analytical instrument the symposium presented different strategies to sketch and connect the world through methods of mapping, walking, drawing, painting, recording, performing, singing, reading, dowsing or mirroring.
Over three days and nights the transdisciplinary symposium engaged in a dialogue between artistic, philosophical and scientific research with presentations and performances in the woods, between moving dunes, inside the various spaces of the Colony and on the coast lines (on the seaside and lagoon). This geological sight permanently generated cracks and traces. The different locations stimulated further discussions of the topic and provided the ground for an assembly of fluctuating lines.
