Artists collective Satellietgroep (The Hague, 2006) explores the sea, coastal transitions, climate change, the perceptions of culture - nature and the role of mankind in these processes, in The Netherlands and abroad.
Our aim is to enhance public and professional
awareness. Satellietgroep hosts artists in
residents, designers and students for artistic fieldwork, collaborate with locals and scientists to reveal different
perspectives that reflect the resilience of
coexistence of mankind with the environment, in past, present and future.
Long term projects are 'Badgast' - artist in residency program at The
Hague/Scheveningen (2009-2014), 'Now Wakes The Sea', the international
exchange residency program in collaboration with international cultural
partners (since 2012). Since 2014 Satellietgroep develops the artistic research program on the Zandmotor, the experimental innovation to generate new knowledge for coastal protection called Building with Nature.
The artist-in-residency and public programs function as an alternative source for visual storytelling and collecting. New concepts and works are developed that we connect and present during public events and at expert conferences. By interconnecting coastal communities, arts and science we share local knowledge on global level to gain sustainable insights on coastal transitions that transcend local and national issues.
