Open Call for Environmental Art Symposium | Estonia

The TAKKK art centre in Estonia has launched the Open Call for Environmental Art Symposium. 

Interruption. Appearance and Disappearance of Man-Made Landscapes. Site-Specific Landscape Art on Tammiku-Kohila Trajectory.

TAKKK’s symposium of landscape art calls for artists to discover and refresh the onetime industrial buildings and other man-made structures of Tammiku-Kohila area. Artists who participate in the symposium must include local inhabitants in the realization of the installations, thus helping them to (re)discover the history of their surroundings and treasure local milieu-valued areas (areas of cultural and environmental value). The main goals of the symposium is to connect, mediate and create a bond between the local inhabitants and genius loci and to make the area more attractive for visitors, to contribute to the creation of recreational spaces of nature tourism. Can places remember people even after the traces left by them have disappeared?
