Some artists choose to settle and work far away from the hectic art scene of the big cities. What are the consequences?
That question will be on debate at the symposium when three of the participants in the exhibition and two artists from Northern Jutland meet to talk about and debate the pros and cons of choosing to live and built artistic careers in Greenland, Iceland, The Faroe Islands, and Northern Jutland.
