The program is held by ESBA Nantes Métropole, HEAD — Genève
and Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam.
With the advise of SKOR Foundation for Art and Public Domain,
This meeting is conceived as an international research platform dedicated to the practice of art in the public space, critical approaches to landscape/borders and artistic projects based on field investigation methods. The program is structured around the presentation of specific projects developed on site by six artists in residence. Artists, teachers and writers from each school are invited to present their own research on complementary issues, contextualized there, in dialogue with the residents. A series of interventions by special guests will complete the whole program, which is intended to share these numerous practical and theoretical explorations with the group of students, as well as with and a broader audience.
The symposium is accompanied by two public events: on the first evening, the opening of the exhibition which will be held at Fieldwork: Marfa Art Space, presenting the projects of the first six artists in residence; on the second evening there will be a screening of the US premiere of the audiovisual show "The Mirage of History", preceded by talk with artist Rosa Barba (IT).

A HAMMER TO THE HEAD FOR TALK AT TEN
By Emily Verla Bovino
In 1981, artist and writer Donald Judd signed his name to a German phrase he found on the wall of one of two artillery sheds at Fort D.A. Russell, Marfa, Texas. The phrase, translated in English, reads, "It is better to use your head than to lose it." In the two sheds, Judd would install the post-contemporary memory theatre, otherwise known amongst the cognoscenti as 100 Works In Mill Aluminum.
On Tuesday February 7 and Wednesday February 15th, Talk at Ten on Marfa Public Radio (10 AM CST on KRTS 93.5 FM) will broadcast the first segment of a two-part series entitled A Hammer to the Head for Talk at Ten: On a Neuromorphic Architectonics of Narrative.
The program will include the broadcast of works by radio philosopher Gregory Whitehead and poet David Antin, with introductions by Emily Verla Bovino, a resident of Fieldwork: Marfa. Segment one will feature Dead Letters, an experimental documentary by Gregory Whitehead produced in 1985. Segment two will feature line, music, counterpoint, disjunction and the measure of mind, a talk by poet David Antin given at the St. Mark's Poetry Project in 1984 .
