Workshop ”The camp” will take place in rum46 from arrival of the artists on 9.8.2011 until their
departures on the 17.8.2011. The aim is to follow up on the participant’s art practices and to know
each other better.
We want to develop “a factory of ideas”, which will be a cross-cultural collective happening doing the
workshop. Participants will be asked to bring “materials” from their cultural background; this
“material” will be used in shaping the process. In the evenings, during the workshop in rum46, there
will also be public presentations from the different groups and social dinner parties. Together the
artists will make a collective exhibition that will be shown in rum46. This exhibition will become the
rum46´s summer exhibition and will be shown until the end of August 2011.
After the workshop,
from the 13.8.2011 to 17.8.2011, the participants will visit the artist group Kultivators farm on Öland
in Sweden and learn about the fusion of agriculture and art.
