Geert Vermeire

about the author

Geert Vermeire is a Belgian curator, poet, artist, art education expert, and librarian. As an artist he creates site-specific installations and performances. As a member of the noTours team he is involved in projects based on community involvement via locative media, sound mapping, and sound-space installations, specifically in relation to literature. In Geert Vermeire’s creative work, technology as a tool has the paradoxical intention of slowing down awareness and inverting time, creating tangible memories and traces. He has worked in several countries in Western Europe and Latin America, including at SMAK Museum of Contemporary Art Ghent, E-Culture Fair/World Creativity Forum Hasselt, Manifesta9 (Belgium), B-Tours Festival Berlin-Leipzig and Ruhr Triennale Essen (Germany), Monastery of Tibaes—Festival Encontros das Imagens in Braga, Casa dos Bicos, and the FBAUL Art University in Lisbon (Portugal), Fotofestiwal Lodz (Poland), BAW Festival Digital Art Tirgu Mures (Romania), A Balkan Tale (Belgrade City Museum, National Museum of Kosovo, Tirana, Skopje, and at Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz), Goethe Institut Athens, Museum Bathhouse of the Winds, Athens, the Athens School of Fine Arts, the University of Thessaly (Greece), Centro Cultural de Banco do Brasil, and the National Library and National Museum of Brasilia (Brazil). Forthcoming and ongoing projects take him to Greece, France, Cyprus, and Lebanon.
