Exploded View Art and Research on Layered Landscapes in Transition
 
Mini-Symposium At VU-Universtity, May 9, 15.00 – 18.00, Location: Lecture hall 14A20.

Exploded View is an art and research project investigating landscapes of transition. The project focuses on two very different yet also related heritage parks in two capitals of Europe, the Via Appia Antica Park in Rome and the Amstelpark in Amsterdam. First, the project focuses on the world heritage of the so called ‘Queen of Roads’, the ancient Via Appia Antica in Rome. The aim is to do research of changing claims and perspectives on the heritage of the Via Appia Park. Second, the project will zoom in on the Amstelpark, Amsterdam, in relation to the heritage of the park and its changing urban context. A major challenge and objective in doing artistic research in these specific landscapes is to unlock the landscapes, make them visible and ‘experienceable’ through all layers of meanings and memories, as in an ‘exploded view’. Another aim is that both artists and scholars collaborate in a joint effort to add new meanings to the parks, and to invite and allow visitors and citizens in general to do the same. This symposium closes a pilot aiming at delineating the framework of the Exploded View Project
