What and why
Euro Land Art is a European project, the concept of which was developed by the region Beauce Dunois in France, and whose purpose is to exhibit Art in the form of Land Art, to revitalise the countryside (tourism, identity, economy). The particular driver of Euro Land Art is to nourish the pride and economy of the “invisible” agricultural areas between the cities, with land art; and thereby attract visitors with a new item of communication.
Land Art was originally (in the 60’s USA) an art movement where landscape was reshaped into Land Art pieces that expressed a statement about society. Euro Land Art views Land Art as large scale Art of Land.
An exhibition Euro Land Art took place in France in the summer of 2005, and in Germany (in the Altmark region) in the summer of 2006. The intention is to organise the exhibition every 3 years in each county. In the in-between years, each country promotes Euro Land Art for each other by organising smaller exhibitions. Conclusion: every year Land Art. See History.
In October 2009 we agreed that Euro Land Art will work on:
1.continuation of the land art
starting new social economic questions, that is:
2.new ways of small scaled horticulture
3.cooperation of agricultural musea or exhibitions
4.local research and development in local laboratories: named ‘garage rurale’
We are organized as a formal network with:
-formal representatives (linked with Local Action Groups of Leader-programme)
-supporting local representatives
-management or first contact
-guidance of art quality: curator

1 the Land Art
The activities for the public in 2013: see this page, and www.landkunst.nl
Land art is seen as large scaled land art, focusing on linking art and agriculture (urban and rural), and bringing new vitality (economy, tourism, culture, regional food) to the rural regions.
Land art is not just art in the field or countryside. The field becomes the land art.
2 Garage Rural.e
The Garage Rural.e will be a local physical and virtual place (one or more in each region) where a new cooperation between the local community and art & science/knowledge will deal with local questions. These questions are brought in by the local community, with the help of art & science.
The questions are stated in a so called Agenda Garage Rural.e. The initiative will be set/based in the region itself (and not in the art & science centra). It is therefore not a new way for a new network of universities and schools to help students to do their practical period or thesis; but of course it is helping. It is another way for a linkage between doing and thinking, region and city, citizens and artists & scientists/students. (The word ‘science’ includes all know-how, such as craftsmanship.)
The region of Mittlere Altmark stated that local horticulture (vegetables, fruits; disappeared with the scale of the DDR-agriculture) could bring new answers, that is: to link villages with the rural food production and to bring new economy (employment). There are also big cities as a market for regional food.
With the concept of 'garage rural.e' we started to explore the possibilities of local food production. Each garage is joinig this search, so help is welcome. In Het Groene Woud initiatives are joined in www.stadslandbouwbrabant.nl.
