LT.art 2017 : Migration | 18-19 November | Den Haag

Visual Arts | Films | Workshop | Discourse
Home of Art | Korte Vijverberg 2 | Den Haag (The Hague)

LT.art is an annual event that brings together Lithuanian expats in the Benelux countries and presents Lithuanian arts and culture to Dutch and international audience. This year we ask:

What is “migration”? How do we hold it together and establish new relations when we migrate out of the country, out of our comfort zone, and between different identities? How do we keep ourselves open to new cultures and ideas in the times when borders are both disappearing and solidifying, and communities are becoming more closed off?

LT.art invites to ask these questions from the perspective of the arts by bringing together young artists and cultural critics from Lithuania, Belgium and the Netherlands. During a two-day festival at the Home of Art in the Hague we will present artworks from diverse disciplines that interrogate the questions of displacement, community, national identity, nomadism, fluidity and stability. We will also invite you to engage in a public discussion on “Nomadic Identity” that will be broadcast live on www.doxa.lt, to challenge your imagination during a comics drawing workshop, and to see a selection of Lithuanian short films.

Check out our full programme and stay tuned!
