The Baltic Sea Art Park

The Baltic Sea Art Park will be established in two parts. A ground based area acting as a park defined by a corridor and an above-water itinerant museum, composed of ten national floating pavilions. Kunst Dokk uses the Baltic Sea as the main space for its peripatetic and temporary forms of art exhibition and performance.

Ten art barges will depart from Pärnu, making multiple stops at harbors in a choreographed crossing of the Baltic Sea. Designed to contain kinetic light sculptures or large-scale pieces, the barges will operate in a convoy formation that follows passenger ferries. Each stop will feature temporary spectacles and collaborations with various artists, musicians, chefs, and other creative people.

Organized from Pärnu, the itinerant pavilions will connect leading cultural institutions and underground creators from the worlds of art, music, food, literature, and film for a series of site-specific cultural interventions. In addition to bringing art to the cities, the organizers will raise funding through ticket sales and donations to support “non-traditional programming” at various museums and galleries across the Baltic Sea.
