There are few topics that evoke so many different notions and images as do farmers and agriculture. The publication Images of Farming explores the production of these images in the fields of culture and myth formation, publicity and the sciences, the cultural heritage, and the fine arts.

myvillages.org is an international artist initiative, founded in 2003 by Kathrin Böhm (D/UK), Wapke Feenstra (NL) and Antje Schiffers (D). The interest of this international foundation is the rural as a space for and of cultural production. The collective aims of myvillages.org are informed by the contextual nature of the individual practices of Böhm, Feenstra and Schiffers and the autobiographical fact that they all come from small villages.

myvillages.org activities range from small scale informal presentations to long term collaborative research projects, from work in private spaces to public conferences, from exhibitions to publications and from personal questions to public debate.
