Welcome to the non-stop event shifting from performance to lecture to 
basketball game to sauna broadcast to performative discussion to artists 
guided site/sight/seeing to discursive dinner to role play to 
interactive buffet to screening to imaginary cartography to workshop to 
tea ritual to slow reading to sonic massage to knowledge sharing to book 
launch to critical sauna to guided orientation to conceptual sentiments.

„This whole program is perverse,“ says Rasa Antanavičiūtė, Executive 
Director of Nida Art Colony; „it's all about pleasure.“ Welcome to the 
intersensory interdisciplinary Inter-Format symposium at Nida Art 
Colony. We aim to create space for interactions to please your senses, 
stimulate your mind, lift your spirit and facilitate connections.

The symposium is hosting 40 artists, curators, researchers and 
practitioners to reinvent the format of presenting and sharing art, 
knowledge and experience. One of the key features of contemporary 
culture is the changing role of the artist, who sometimes assumes the 
role of a researcher and curator, and vice versa. Where are the borders 
of these roles? How could a serious researcher and theorist do a 
performance, and how could a playful artist do serious research and 

Along the Symposium we launch the 4th TRACES Edition. The contributions 
of the Edition will supplement the symposium broadening the artistic 
expression and inquiring into the research and practices covering 
reinvention of interdisciplinary forms.

We are kindly inviting artists, curators, and researchers to think of 
unconventional Fluxus actions, to think of the gap, space or hole, to 
think of light, wind or water, all one can grasp but not really define. 
Articles, images, sound and video files are kindly appreciated for 
inclusion into the Interformat Edition. Please send your material to 
editions at t-r-a-c-e-s.net
