Lithuania is a small country on the coast of the Baltic Sea, known for its ancient language and basketball. However, is it all that we hear about Lithuania? It has been recent since conductor Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla was recognized as one of the best women conductors in the world, soloist Asmik Grigorian was named the second Anna Netrebko by the Austrian critics. Have you heard of the “Euthanasia rollercoaster” by Julijonas Urbonas? Or seen the colorful photographs of Aleksandra Kingo? These are just to name a few Lithuanians who live and work abroad, that spread the word about Lithuania.
There is no surprise, that a lot of creative Lithuanians choose large cultural capitals, such as London, Paris or Vienna for inspiration.
Vienna is a multicultural capital, an important European center of culture and art, which always attracted and attracts artists to study and work. Lithuanian culture is a part of this city.
LT.art Vienna – is a series of events that presents the works of artists living and working in Austria. The main theme of the year 2019 is adaptation (liet. ADAPTACIJA). The events are designed to show, how communicating with other cultures helps us understand the diversity of the world around us, change our knowledge and improve the techniques – adapt to the surroundings.
The program includes a group exhibition, workshops, and concerts. Festival’s lectors will share their experience, the possibilities and the practices of presenting projects on an international scale.
The first festival is dedicated in memory of Jonas Mekas, "the godfather of American avant-garde cinema", whose works inspire some to discover the world and dare to be open.
“One has to live without formulas, be open – that is no formula. Keep the windows and doors open, observe what is happening, to perceive what is unknown. One needs to wonder, observe, no need to deny. “- J.Mekas
