From 21 May to 3 June 2012, County Durham hosted a unique village within the town of Wolsingham. The 35 international residents of the ‘Nomadic Village’ worked in camper vans, caravans, marquees and a converted police bus. The 12-day project provided space for professional artists to live, work, and respond to the location.
 
The resulting exhibition travels in suitcases and will be shown in a caravan rebuilt into a gallery. This touring exhibition will be going to England, France, Italy and Austria – and comes to The Continental on Tuesday 17th and Wednesday 18th July…
 
The artist Klaus Mähring will be giving an informal talk about the exhibition in the Art Space at 7.30pm on Wednesday 18th.

Klaus Mähring is a photographer. He often works with an old 5 X 4 plate camera to create stunning portraits of people living in rural locations around Eastern Europe. Klaus tours these remote areas in a converted old police bus, being on the road is an essential part of his practice, it means being somewhere else, in an in-between that hasn’t been categorised or pigeonholed yet.
 
Klaus also runs 'On The Road Productions', a company which aims to develop and run collaborative projects with other nomadic artists. In the past On The Road Productions has set up a Nomadic Village in a small community north of Sofia, Bulgaria. It allowed other artists with mobile homes and studios to join Klaus in the temporary settlement to create work in response to the community, landscape and each other.
