Land Art in the Abandoned
Villages of Ralsko
symposium, art paths, public contest
Since 2016, the non-profit organization Geopark Ralsko has been regularly organizing international land art gatherings in the landscape of abandoned municipalities where artists from different countries meet to create works that reconcile the history of the violent landscape transformation within Ralsko. The mission is to strengthen the cultural identity of the local inhabitants connected to the landscape in the border regions which has undergone a fundamental transformation in the 20th century. Nowadays, we are reconnecting and rebuilding our relationship to such "disappeared" places whose meaning for the future is still to be found.
We have already organized three annual symposiums and are working on preparations for the 2019 gathering. In 2016 and 2017, two documentaries were created in addition to the works of art.
