The AIR_BALTIC II residency is a platform for artistic practices exploring how social, historical and political narratives can take physical shape in nature, built environments, institutions and contemporary memory culture in the Baltic Sea region - also outside of Gotland. The residency invites two artists from the Nordic and Baltic countries in 2019-20, to encourage reflective thinking on the underpinnings of “place” in the Baltic Sea region.
