Groundings

Groundings is a series of texts by writers, artists, curators, and academics, commissioned by Occasional Groundwork (an alliance of three European biennials: EVA (Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art), GIBCA (Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art, Sweden), and LIAF (Lofoten International Art Festival, Norway)). The texts explore themes of internationalism, sustainability, audience, and infrastructure within the context of the contemporary art biennial and the shift in conditions imposed by the ongoing pandemic.
