Back from Mustarinda

Reason to be cheerful number one at the moment is about having been in Mustarinda opening yesterday. Your humble coordinator gave a short presentation about Nomadic Academy there. Mustarinda is art and nature centre in Kainuu, located at the outskirts of Paljakka Nature Reserve, arranging exhibitions, art events and seminars.

I feel that Nomadic Academy is sharing many elements and ethos with the community in Mustarinda. Their inspiration comes partly from Black Mountain College in North Carolina (USA), the important experimental arts place during its active years 1933—1957, in where the immigrants from Bauhaus (Josef Albers and others) planted the seeds for the new avantgarde art. It became more radical when John Cage, Merce Gunningham, Robert Rauschenberg and others, in the unique spirit of co-operation, practised experimentality and ravished the roles of the old mediums of art.
