>>> STRATA is a captivating project that blends film and performance art to explore the fascinating history of caves as sites of knowledge-making and art creation. Through international collaborations and interdisciplinary processes, artists and researchers investigate the connection between the human body and the geological depth of subsurface environments. The project focuses on the prehistoric caves of the Swabian Jura, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where Ice Age humans sought shelter and created the oldest known examples of human figurative sculptures. This fifth performance-based film project by VestAndPage delves into Deep Time and layers of memory in human history and the geological, while reflecting on contemporary societies and ecological environments. The participating renowned artists embody diversity and raise awareness of our geological, political, and social past and future.
