A project by NUA new contemporary arts and research
Republic of San Marino
How do artists and institutions of contemporary art from the small States of Europe perceive the new Europe? How is it possible to develop, starting from these specificities, new strategies for common cultural projects also involving European and extra European microrealities?

A meeting/workshop aiming at the dissemination of information and knowledge among artists and institutions of contemporary art from the small States of Europe: Andorra, Cyprus, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, San Marino. The objective is to start thinking how to create the right conditions for an open project. This must be also a physically open place where art can be exhibited and available for exchanges with other European and extra European microrealities.
We need to go beyond the concept of national art, and exploit the numerous critical and symbolic aspects of contemporary art, without loosing sight of any detail.

This is the first collective initiative of a research project started by the artists Rita Canarezza & Pier Paolo Coro by Nua new contemporary arts and research, with the support of San Marino Foundation. Over the last two years the promoters of this project visited these countries in order to analyse the aspects concerning contemporary art and understand how these specific geocultural microareas (many of which outside the EU) perceive and live their identity within an enlarged Europe, compared to the international context of contemporary art.

Finally, artists and institutions of contemporary art from Andorra, Cyprus, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco and San Marino had the opportunity to met and exchanged their views and experiences.

A first project among the artists is entitled VIDEO SENSITIVE POSTCARDS.
Videos, realised especially for the occasion of the meeting, as a reaction to the project, including also video-interviews to: Yiannis Toumazis, Enrico Lunghi, Friedemann Malsch, Agnès Roux.
