The 2009 edition of the @rt Outsiders Festival —celebrating 
this year its tenth anniversary—focuses on extreme environments.

These are environments that were, until recently, 
uninhabited by human beings and that contemporary science 
and technology turn into "inhabitable" places (Antarctica, 
underwater world, outer space, deserts); but also those that 
are becoming "uninhabitable" due to the impacts of our way 
of life (pollution, technological accidents, economical 
pressures and global warming).

"(Un)Inhabitable? – Art of Extreme Environments" presents 
works that explore the meaning of living in extreme 
environments, in the imaginary realm as well as in the 
physical one, in the political, social and environmental 
fields as well as in the poetic ones.
