Wild Wild Æst
19:00 – 23:00
Æther Haga, Denneweg 26, The Hague
Æther invited her network to respond with a short video on what we tend to call “Eastern Europe”, and to reveal her personal vision on this matter.
The result is a selection of 38 submissions, together forming a rich image from a variety of perspectives on this topic and the 6th of March you’re very much welcome to pass by and immerse yourself into it.
Psycho-geography more than ever plays part in the way we perceive the ever-rolling shift of the con tempo; explorations of both urban environments that emphasizes playfulness and “drifting” inner wishes and visions, revolutionary groups fictions, Marxist and anarchist theory retold, as well, as the attitudes and methods of Dadaists and Surrealists applied nowadays. Psycho-geography as a new guide tool for orientation in geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behaviour of individuals has also been defined as “a total dissolution of boundaries between art and life”. A whole toy box full of playful, inventive strategies for exploring cities, places, mind-sets, traditions; just about anything that takes pedestrians off their predictable paths and jolts them into a new awareness of the landscape.
