'Now wakes the sea' by J.G. Ballard.
‘NOW WAKES THE SEA’ 2012: NLTR400
The project 'Now Wakes The Sea' is initiated by Satellietgroep and involves research based air programs for artists/filmmakers in coastal transition areas around the Black Sea and North Sea to develop new works, select existing works and program a traveling filmfestival for screening on venues, both on the coast of the Black Sea as well as on The North Sea.
2012: 'NOW WAKES THE SEA' - NLTR400
First step in connecting the Black Sea to the North Sea is the collaboration of Satellietgroep/Badgast (NL) with European Cultural Association/Europist (TR), in the context of Sinopale 4, International Sinop Biennial and the celebration of NLTR400 in 2012.
The development of the project is so far supported by: Tandem - European Cultural Foundation, MitOst e.V. (Berlin), Centre for Cultural Management (Lviv), Soros Foundation Moldova (Chisinau), Culture Action Europe (Brussels) and funded by the European Commisson (Culture) and Robert Bosch Stiftung - SICA, the municipality of The Hague, Haagse Brug, Stroom, the Dutch Embassy in Turkey, ECF and SfA.
Artist run initiative Satellietgroep is based since 2006 in The Hague, The Netherlands, a country with a strong historic art and innovative relationship with the sea.
Satellietgroep has an embedded art and culture approach to researching the way the sea and waterways influences cities and people. We aim to research the pressure on public, social and cultural use on the waterfronts and develop new concepts and strategies focused on a new approach of future sea and coastal urban areas.
Satellietgroep programs Badgast, a research based artist in residency at the coast of The Hague/Scheveningen where we invite artistst and scientists to develop and present research that articulates a cultural, innovative and sustainable significance of the sea and its coasts. In addition to the artist in residency program Satellietgroep programs the open air Cinema at Sea @ Badgast and Talks @ Badgast.
In close collaboration with international artists, scienists, curators and guestcurators Satellietgroep develops a contemporary Seacollection On Coastal Transitions, with exchange projects in The Netherlands as well as abroad.
Satellietgroep is participant in the association of art run initiatives in The Hague, participant in the Dutch Artist in Residence Platform Transartist, and member of the Dutch Platform that represents presentation organizations and institutions in The Netherlands.
