"Counterhegemony: Art in a Social Context" is a 7 week Artist Fellowship Program at NIDA Art Colony that looks at genealogy, or the epistemic context within which bodies of knowledge become intelligible and authoritative, as a point of departure in art production. It is aimed at any art or cultural production that exists within or in reference to social forms of resistance that coalesce in opposition to hegemonic structures.

Last summer (August 2013) artist group Cooltūristės was on residency in Nida Art Colony curated residency programme "Critical Tourism". During their stay the artists were working on an artistic research project with a goal to document the invisible life in Neringa.
They were knocking on the doors of the locals in order to find out where do the locals go when they rent our their appartments and whole houses to the summer tourists; where do penny-less students and low-income families come for their vacation. Through a photo-camera lense the artists were seeking to understand how these unusual life conditions trigger creativity and what sort of daily rituals are forming in this unseen millieu.
The outcome of the project - a photo exhibition - will be presented in "Agila" culture and tourist information center (Taikos g.4) on the 11th of August, and will run up to the 1st of September. All are welcome to the opening at 19.00 on the 11th of August.

In July Nida Art Colony is providing all present with an immersive experience of insect buzz on hot summer days, cold Baltic sea bathing sessions, sweat-breaking exercise of climbing up and down the hill to reach the only shopping spot in the perimeter of a few dozen kilometers, as well as a wonderful panoramic of the construction site of NAC house no.2, fabulously changing day by day. The rhythm is about to slow down in the main building (never in the hammering battlefield of the construction site though!) - most of the student practices will be over by mid-july, while the artist studios are buzzing with much more than just insect songs. Just reminding us that there is no summer holidays for the artistic process - it happens whenever it needs to.
