EN ROUTE 2003 – Art for Drivers along European Roads

Part 1: Spain

country road passing through Fuendetodos in the region of Aragon near Zaragoza

EN ROUTE is an artist exchange project between Poland, Spain and Germany. Site-specific art installations will be presented along European roads in fall 2003.

The concept has been developed for motorists and other mobile art consumers. Themes such as dynamics, speed, perception and the fleeting glimpse are the central artistic themes.

The central interest of the participating organizations are the presentation of conceptual art in public spaces and international cooperation.

Host for the first part of EN ROUTE is Arte en Arbita from Zaragoza. In contrast to the third part of EN ROUTE in a central street in Lodz this time a little country road south west from Zaragoza in the eastern part of Spain has been chosen as the “place of action”. The road runs through an almost uninhabited desert-like landscape, nearby the pictoresque mountain village Fuendetodos where Goya was born.

Typical are wide expanses, dried-out fields and ochre-coloured earth, occasionally interrupted by vineyards and shepards´ huts.

En Route ist a cooperation of
Kunstpflug e.V. (Baitz, Land Brandenburg)
Arte en Orbita (Zaragoza)
Galeria Wschodnia (Lodz)

concept/realization: Susken Rosenthal/ Paco Simon
