The 7th Inter-format Symposium took place at VAA Nida Art Colony on 19th-22nd of May. Over three days and nights the transdisciplinary symposium engaged in a dialogue between more than 50 participants with presentations and performances in the woods, between moving dunes, inside the various spaces of the Colony and on the coast lines (on the seaside and lagoon). The Symposium reflected on the line as a very basic visual element and medium of knowledge. In the geopolitical context, the shoreline and borders of the Curonian spit, a group of artists, philosophers, scientists, dancers and musicians were invited to reflect on the contemporary means of the line facing fluctuating information, political changes, new territories and body movements. Using the line as a metaphoric as well as analytical instrument the symposium presented different strategies to sketch and connect the world through methods of mapping, walking, drawing, painting, recording, performing, singing, reading, dowsing or mirroring.
