Explore, Collect, Share & Learn the Culture of Nature

We see more and more examples of contemporary artistic projects that place our environment (or Umwelt, as the Germans put it more accurately) at the core of their work. There seems to be a global wave of artists and designers that address the ways in which humans interact with and affect the climate and climate changes. And that's great! We need to critically investigate perceptions of our human footprint as a cultural phenomenon. Artists, designers, scientists and (educational) institutions feel the urge to examine how the human impact on our planet (and beyond!) influences our daily lives. They collaborate outside their established domains and they find new strategies to step out of their and your comfort zones to interconnect with society beyond the abstractions of numbers and figures; beyond white cubes and islands of knowledge!

Dutch artists collective Satellietgroep (The Hague, 2006) explores the sea, coastal transitions, climate change and the role of mankind in these processes in the Netherlands and abroad.
The team of artists collective Satellietgroep performs artistic field research into the impact of mankind on climate change, sea level rise & the hybrid relations between mankind and socalled (often man made) nature in the Netherlands and abroad. The current curatorial team of Satellietgroep is Jacqueline Heerema, Francois Lombarts and Lotte Bosman.
Artistic research areas in the Netherlands: Zandmotor, Scheveningen, Waddensea (Vlieland, Terschelling), polders Waterland and Haarlemmermeer, Afsluitdijk & more.
Recent research projects and public presentations: Destination Highway Afsluitdam (Afsluitdijk, Making Waves 2017), Gardening without Borders (Wadden, Oerol 2017), Prospectors - three layers of landscape (Intersections Art Rotterdam 2017), Landschapsextracten (polder Waterland, 2016), Waterpionier (Zandmotor, 2016).
Satellietgroep collaborates with international colleagues initiatives and works with artists in residents, artists, designers and students during their artistic process to do fieldwork and develop new works and insights. We connect arts and science with audiences. Sometimes residents also become part of the collective!

Special location for artistic research and artist in residency program is the Zandmotor south of The Hague. Since 2014 Satellietgroep explores the Zandmotor as cultural phenomenon.
The Zandmotor is a pilot near The Hague that uses the principles of 'Building with Nature'. This innovative project aims to generate new knowledge in times of climate change and relative sea level rise for our future coastal protection. An innovation, built on the foreshore in 2011 with 21,5 million cubic meters of sand. The Zandmotor is the only Dutch area outside the dikes that is exposed to the tides, built to transform and even assimilate around 2030 in sea, beach and dunes. The result is a dynamic extension of the coast, a new controlled ‘wilderness’. The Zandmotor is an publicly accessible open air scientific and artistic laboratory.
