GROUND book

is a cross-disciplinary retrospective on the site-specific art projects of Ground Art Fest in Gyumri 2021. Expanding the conventional boundaries of art documentation, the book assembles a collage of diverse authors, art critics and thinkers, drawing on the discourses of art history, social anthropology and contemporary philosophy through personal experiences. Like the festival, the publication takes a collaborative approach, encouraging researchers to act as a bridge between Armenian artists and their colleagues in Munich and to develop a "ground" for new projects to come.
