Symposium HORIZONTAL-VERTICAL

SAVE THE DATE: 30. Juni / 1. Juli 2018, Tenna GR

Die Tagung beschäftig sich mit alten und neuen Formen von Land und Environmental Art. Die kanonische Land Art der später 1960er und frühen 1970er Jahre, insbesondere jene des amerikanischen Südwestens, wurde von weiten Räumen dominiert, die auf die horizontale Ausrichtung der Landschaft ausgerichtet war. “Die Horizontale” wurde zum wichtigsten, wenn nicht gar ästhetisches Prinzip dieser Kunstform. Doch was passiert, wenn das Umfeld, in dem Kunst geschaffen wird, sich radikal ändert? Die jüngsten Tendenzen aus den alpinen Regionen zeigen Neuorientierungen und –Positionierung die sich unter anderem in einer Verschiebung von der gewohnten horizontalen Flachheit oder einem Eingriff darin zu einer neuen Vertikalität zeigt. Dies ändert nicht nur unsere Wahrnehmung, was Land Art ist oder sein könnte, sondern auch von der Landschaft, in der sie stattfindet.

Das Symposium findet als Teil der ALPS ART ACADEMY und der ART SAFIENTAL statt und bringt über 40 TheoretikerInnen, KünstlerInnen, KuratorInnen und Studierende aus 20 Nationen nach Tenna. Unter den SprecherInnen finden sich Experten der internationalen Land Art wie William Fox (Center for Land + Environment, Reno), Chris Taylor (Land Art of the American West), Steve Rowell (CLUI Los Angeles) und DIG Collective (London) im Dialog mit heimische Positionen wie Emily Eliza Scott (ETH Zürich), Giovanni Carmine (Kunsthalle St.Gallen), Sibylle Omlin (Kunsthistorikerin, Aven), Luciano Fasciati (Galerist, Chur) und Atelier für Sonderaufgaben (Null Stern Hotel) im Dialog. Weitere Beiträge werden beigesteuert von Dozierenden der Akademie (Johannes M. Hedinger, Hanna Hölling, Konstanze Schütze, Ella Tetrault).

Die Vorträge finden mehrheitlich in englischer Sprache statt.
Kosten: Samstag: inkl. Mittagessen, Nachtessen: 80.- CHF / Sonntag: inkl. Mittagessen: 60.- CHF
Ganzes Wochenende: 120.- CHF. Einwohner der Gemeinde Safiental bezahlten die Hälfte.

Call for Application

Application for the ALPS ART ACADEMY 2018, summer school for „Land and Environmental Art“ in the Swiss Alps is now open. Deadline: March 25. 2018
Call E    / Call D

The second international Alps Art Academy will take place between June 28 and July 7, 2018 in the Safiental (Grisons, Switzerland). Located 1650 meters above sea level in Tenna, and taking place biannually, the summer academy focuses on Land and Environmental Art.
In a dialogue with the art-historical movement of the 60s and 70s, contemporary approaches to art are located, discussed and further developed in relationship to the Alpine landscape. The Alps Art Academy creates a platform for imagining a possible future Land Art, which integrates not only landscape and nature but also other media and the wider social context.
An invitation to submit proposals is aimed equally and without age limit at artists who are interested in working with landscape and the environment, as well as theoreticians, facilitators and curators engaged in research on the topic of Land Art. You are invited to apply with a project idea that can be realised during the period in which the summer school takes place in the area of Safienal. The theme for 2018 is HORIZONTAL – VERTICAL.

Program
The academy offers about 25 participants a 10 day program consisting of workshops, master classes, symposium, field trips, artist talks and presentations, in which they will have the opportunity to explore different aspects and core problems of art production in the landscape and apply what they have learned to their own projects. Participants are accompanied practically and theoretically by international mentors. The Academy is linked with the outdoor exhibition Art Safiental (July 7 to October 21, 2018) and offers participants the opportunity to present their projects.
