Welcome to the non-stop event shifting from performance to lecture to

„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
