Frontiers in Retreat. Multidisciplinary Approaches to Ecology in Contemporary Art

Jutempus is taking part in organisation of Frontiers in Retreat project, developing its Art Education Programme with a focus on multidisciplinary methodologies and sustainability in artistic research, working closely with the educational institutions to organise a series of student workshops, research days, field trips and exchanges. The programme will unfold alongside the various stages of the project, involve the artists and their research processes and form a base for a sustainable art education and research network.

Frontiers in Retreat broadens the understanding of global ecological changes and their local impacts on European natural environments by means of contemporary artistic practices and multidisciplinary approach. It responds to an urgency to redefine relationships with environments that are decreasing in permanent habitation while at the same time facing increasing attention for various ecological and economic reasons. Frontiers, specific “natural environments” within Europe, seemingly detached from the urban areas, are approached in the project as sites where global ecological concerns in their complexity become apparent.

Frontiers in Retreat is organised by HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme in partnership with the art organisations Mustarinda, Finland; Scottish Sculpture Workshop – SSW, Scotland; Interdisciplinary Art Group SERDE, Latvia; Cultural Front – GRAD, Serbia; Centre d’Art i Natura de Farrera, Spain; Skaftfell – Center for Visual Art, Iceland; and Jutempus, Lithuania. Frontiers in Retreat has been funded with support from the EU Culture Programme for the years 2013–2018.
