Myvillages is a pan-national artist group founded in 2003 by Kathrin Böhm, Wapke Feenstra, and Antje Schiffers. Its work addresses the evolving relationship between the rural and the urban, looking at different forms of production, pre-conceptions and power relationships.
Current and recent projects include International Village Show (2014 – 16) for the Museum of Contemporary Art Leipzig, Germany, Forms of Lending Shapes, A-Z Marzona Collection, Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, Umeå Pantry for Bildmuseet Umeå, Sweden and Farmers and Ranchers with M12, Colorado, USA and Fries Museum, the Netherlands.
Myvillages works on a number of long-term projects with a focus on the particular local, but all projects develop trans-local connections within pan cultural and pan national networks, for example in projects such as I like being a farmer and want to stay one, the Bibliobox and the International Village Shop, all started around 2005 and ongoing.
