INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

PLACES ON THE EDGE

CREATING A SENSE OF PLACE IN OFF-THE BEATEN-TRACK PLACES

The topic of the conference is practices (and especially, but not exclusively, artistic practices ranging from conventional to highly innovative) that contribute to the creation of the sense of place in remote areas. Remote places can function as working fields where contemporary issues can be studied and create immediate social impact to local communities. In remote places, like Prespes found across borderlines, artists and scholars can explore issues related to history, cultural differences, memories of wars. The Conference is part of the artistic process Visual March to Prespes 2015-16 a process that since 2006 explores the potential of the area.
