Can traveling be art? What is art that moves around? How nomadic is art today?
Arts on the move looks into how walking, traveling and art intersect and interbreed.

Insights about nomadic art practices are shared by Karen O’Rourke, researcher and writer of among other books Walking and Mapping – Artists as Cartographers, and Francesco Careri, co-founder of Stalker / Osservatore Nomade and writer of among other books Walkscapes: walking as an aesthetic practice.

This duo conversation is followed by a discussion with eight traveling artists of the nomadic SCUB cultural collaboration project: Jelena Luise, Alessandro Riletti, Lea Blau, Lori Lako, Jelena Gajinović, Diona Kusari, Mary Marinopoulou, and Sezer Salihi.

This Cafe is co-organized with Some Call Us Balkans – SCUB, cultural collaboration project, promoted by Creative Europe Cultural Cooperation and is a free event after simple registration and free ticket purchase below.

Moderated by Geert Vermeire and Enrico Tomassini.
