Your Time is My Time, an analysis of contemporary artistic practices among artists from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania in the context of evolving global networks and art production
The evening will unfold with a presentation of the book by Merilin Talumaa and Annika Toots. Artist Agnė Juodvalkytė, whose visual essay Tools for the Future (2022) is included in the book, will be exhibiting her work as part of the event.
Your Time Is My Time analyses contemporary artistic practices among artists from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania in the context of evolving global networks and art production. The book focuses on artists from the Baltic countries who have been living and working outside of the region for longer periods of time or who have been engaged in a nomadic lifestyle, constantly travelling between different cities and countries. It explores different aspects of migration, precariousness, belonging, and community-building in the practices of these artists, in order to reflect on how the working conditions shape their artworks.
Your Time Is My Time also captures a turning point in the perception of temporal, geographic,and social proximity, and the shift towards finding more sustainable artistic methods and practices in response to deepening economic and ecological distress. Has this current era of crises resulted in new ways of working? How has the meaning of home and workplace changed?
Agnė Juodvalkytė’s work will be on view from 20 September 2023 so make sure to stop by before the event.
Like all our events, it is free to attend.
The event has been made possible with the support of the Estonian Embassy in Berlin.
