A selection of artists and cultural workers from various geographies speak about their motivations, satisfactions and frustrations with collaborative work. The interviews are available as audio and in written form. A project by Miklos Erhardt.
Miklos is also a member of the group Big Hope with Dominic Hislop & Elske Rosenfeld. The group have done a ray of projects ranging from "Protest Songbook" to Commonopoly - a large scale game like structure.
For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.
We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
