The only way to deal with an unfree world, is to become absolutely free, that your very existence is an act of rebellion. - Albert Camus
nomadic village 2009

The Nomadic Village is a mobile art society which is run by and for nomadic artists. The virtual meeting point is the website, the physical epicenter is the bus.

Nomadic Village Artists 2013 - Catalogue


Captain Klaus is happy about the 3rd Nomadic Village. After Pavlikeni 2009 and Wolsingham 2012, for 2013 Nomadic Village invited artists to Cuges les Pins to set up the Nomadic Village with their mobile homes/ateliers and work on their projects.

Nomadic Village UK 2012

The Nomadic Village UK 2012 was produced in collaboration with ISIS Arts (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) and supported by Durham County Arts Team. It welcomed nomadic artists from all over the world, whose practice is rooted in themes surrounding nomadism; those who intentionally displace themselves to seek encounters that not only influence their work but form it; artists who work without borders and constantly respond to situations, places and people along their journey. The Nomadic Village acts as a platform for artists working in this manner, ultimately creating a wider, more visible network for nomadic artists.
