A collaborative process with each city's partners and the local community
The partner institutions in the cities in which (re)connecting.earth takes place are central to the development of each edition of the project in several ways. In addition to being exhibition venues, they participate in the organic develop-ment of new forms of exhibition-making and audience participation that vary according to the local context and budget. The project adapts to the specificities of the partner cities and institutions in terms of the modes of presentation, the scale of the exhibition, and the actors involved in each edition. (Re)connecting.earth seeks to actively integrate experts as well as members of civil society who are interested in sustainability issues and/or art. The host institutions are the-refore strongly invited to propose collaborations with local partners such as associations active in sustainable develop-ment, urban gardeners, gymnasiums, universities, local scientists in charge of the ecological transition, architects, or urban planners, in order to integrate them in the design of the final project.
In the various processes of collaboration and integration, (re)connecting.earth seeks to develop a sustainable initiative that transforms spectators into actors and puts them at the center of the project. This allows large groups of citizens to discuss, exchange, and experience the connection to the earth in a transdisciplinary way.
The exhibition can be adapted to different urban contexts, scales and art institutions depending on various factors such as the partners who take part of the project, the type of public and the budget.
Amongst the scalable elements are:
- The number of artists and instructions (min. 10).
- Their mode of presentation (standard exhibition panels, panels using public advertising space, DIN-A0 posters presented in the exhibition spaces, free distribution of DIN-A3 posters, other custom modes of presentation).
- The possibility to create instructions specifically for a new edition by artists not yet included in the selection.
- The number of venues in the city where the exhibition will be presented.
- The number and type of artworks exhibited in addition to the instructions.
- The volume and nature of public discussions and workshops held during the exhibition.
