Experimental Heritage – a new collaborative method for artists, archaeologists and heritage workers

Experimental Heritage is a developing research area and working method used at the intersection of artistic interpretation and heritage work concerning both research and communication. The ambition is to create egalitarian meetings between artists, archaeologists and heritage workers within and outside academia and museums in the local community. The goal is to reload archaeology and heritage with new meanings in the present. Since January 2015 we have been working together, developing new approaches to art and archaeology/heritage in the local community. The perspectives are based in the landscape. The artistic interpretations mainly appear in landscape settings. Central to the overall approach, in the creation of artistic interpretation of archaeology and heritage, is the use of the sketch as a method to approach the past and make it relevant today
