A project dealing with the status quo of the human rights in Europe seen from the perspective of visual art. Starting by the end of 2007, over a period of three years analyses and visions of human rights issues in Europe will be developed and disseminated in the general public with the means of art.

Six art institutions have jointly developed the “Land of Human Rights”. The different parts of the program – exhibitions inside and outside the gallery space, poster campaigns, media projects, film programmes, residency programmes, theoretical discourse etc – are conceived and carried out on the institutions own authority. In terms of content a knowledge transfer takes place regarding questions of arts and human rights as well as an interchange of experts: artists who deal with aspects of the human rights discourse will present their work resp. develop new works – in communication with human rights activists and researchers.

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”
