On October 3, 2024, the supporting program of Land Art Lives will come together during an international conference in the Agora Theater in Lelystad. We will start the day with several international speakers. In the afternoon, parallel working sessions on the future of land art will take place. The day will be moderated by Meta Knol. In addition to the program, there is plenty of opportunity to meet and delve further into reading and archival material.


Humberto Moro of the Dia Art Foundation (United States) will give a lecture on the ways Dia manages iconic land art works in America and how they deal with current developments there. Afterwards, Anja Novak of the University of Amsterdam will discuss with him the Dia Art approach in the context of Flevoland. Britta Peters of Urbane Künste Ruhr (Germany) has years of experience at Skulptur Projekte Münster and talks about her programmatic approach in the Ruhr area. Lisa Le Feuvre of Holt/Smithson Foundation (United States) will join her in conversation after the event.

Afternoon sessions

Following this inspiring input, participants will engage in afternoon discussions. Various topics and questions will be discussed in a number of parallel sessions. What is the specific dynamic between land art and the public, and is there, in response to the major spatial task facing the Netherlands, reason for new land art? Three special guests will participate in each session, including Marjolijn Dijkman (visual artist and initiator of Enough Room for Space), Orlando Maaike Gouwenberg (Sonsbeek Foundation), Benno Tempel (Museum Kröller Müller), Simone Vermaat (RCE), Mieke Conijn (IJsselbiennale), Lydia Beerkens (SRAL) and many others.
