Border as a Place Takes Place

The KUNO intensive course “Border as a Place” brings together young artists from Iceland, Norway and Estonia in the Narva Art Residency of EKA from 5th to 12th of August.

The historically diverse industrial city of Narva marks the border between Estonia and Russia and is also the significant eastern border of the European Union. The different political/cultural/economical/industrial/geographical layers that define the city are creating a semiotically rich environment, which supplies material for various research areas.

How does the new generation of artists relate to the differences that the borders mark and create?

Presentations of the projects start from 14.00 at Narva Art Residency.
