B_Tours Vilnius. Dystopia
Artist in Residency Vilnius - 5-14 September 2016
B_Tour, established in Berlin in 2013, is a nomadic curatorial platform dedicated to artistic guided tours, audio walks, and experimental navigation in the field of performance and visual art. B_Tour presents projects by artists, social and cultural experts, architects, activists and experts of everyday life who suggest creative approaches to explore, relate and interact with cities. Projects often look at the intersection between art and art mediation, walking as a performative and/or political act, narratology, anti-tourism and walking as a corporal experience. B_Tour reflects of notions of locality and community in the context of the urban, human-technolgy interface and geographical hegemony. The projects implement innovative approaches to participation and cultivate new discursive artistic formats.
B_Tour presented 5 festivals and individual projects by approx. 60 artists and artist groups in Berlin, Belgrade, Leipzig, Copenhagen and Vilnius. Apart from the main program of mobile projects presented in the public space, the programs included a series of panel discussions about current urban matters called B_Talks; a public screening program, workshops, networking events and special programs for young people.
