Earth Homing Talks

8 August – 9 September 2018
Grótta Island, Seltjarnarnes, Reykjavík

"Earth Homing” asks how can we contribute to a new ecological definition of ‘home’? Parallel to the exhibition a series of talks will further investigate future implications of how artistic and architectural production can redefine national identity and cultural value. How can Iceland’s ‘exotic’ national identity allow for a reinvention of sorts? What can be learned from this architecture which dominated all of Icelandic history until its eradication at the beginning of the 20th century? “Earth Homing” bridges different disciplines to allow for creativity to be the driving force for an ecological and ethical future.
