19 November 2004 – 9 January 2005

Contemporary Art Centre, Vilnius
Vokieciu str. 2, Vilnius

Opening: Friday 19.11 at 6 pm.

OLANDU BIURAS is an exhibition exploring the culture of corporate cooperation. A particular kind of corporate advising – promoted by international consulting firms – has played a major role in the markets of the new member states during the last decade. The participating Dutch artists create a temporary office (“biuras”) at the Contemporary Art Center to give advice on the working practices and policies of CAC at the critical moment of Lithuania joining the EU, exploring issues such as teamwork and individual creativity, and local needs and global perspectives. The exhibition presents the proposals, works, and collaborations, which have been developed by the artists during a research/work period in Vilnius.
