(non)Science at Nida Art Colony

We often assume art and science to be far from each other, oftentimes - as rivals. But more often than not science- and pseudo-theories, which were thought to be valid, are denied and the way we perceive the world changes. During the "Migrating Art Academies" workshop young artists will immerse themselves into scientific and social facts approved as valid or denied, and will work on concepts of the real and the imaginable. 

All interested are welcome to attend public lectures:

Tuesday, the 2nd of September
10:00 – 13:00 Ian Damerell. Lecture: Seeing Things Through Things

Thursday, the 4th of September
10:00 – 11:00 Arturas Raila. Lecture: Primitive Sky
11:30 – 13:00 Mindaugas Gapševičius. Lecture: At the edge of arts and sciences

Friday, the 5th of September
10:00 Alan Smith. Lecture: On the notion of being
