Press release in Estonian:

HANSEliveartWORKS on rahvusvaheliste hansapäevade kaasaegse kunsti sündmus.

Fookuses on “elus”, siin ja praegu sündiv kunstiteos. Festivali alapealkiri “Burning Borders – Põletades piire”, viitab sellele, et just selline kunst, mis astub vaatajaga silmast silma otse linnatänaval, on võimeline nihestama kinnistunud ühiskondlikke stereotüüpe, stampe ning käitumismalle.

Kolme päeva jooksul esinevad Viljandi linnaruumis erinevate aktsioonide, performance‘ite, etenduste ja sekkumistega 10 hansalinna kunstnikud Eestist, Rootsist, Norrast, Saksamaalt, Prantsusmaalt.

Hansapäevade ajal asub Kondase keskuse hoovis HanseLiveArtWorksi telk, kus toimuvad igapäevaselt avatud vestlused ja avatud loengud. Sellest telgist leiate informatsiooni ka kõikide performance'ite toimumiskohtade ja -aegade kohta.

Ajakava: http://hansa.viljandi.ee/programm-2/korvalprogramm/kunst/

Kuraatorid: Laineli Parrest ja Gregor Taul.
