“Arterritory Conversations with Collectors” is an annual publication. The first issue was released in 2013 with the aim of introducing the public to some of the most important and prestigious art collections as well as demonstrating that art can become a meaningful part of everyone’s life. Its goal is to document relevant conversations on both the situation of art today and the possible paths of future development in the art world, thereby popularising the art scene and garnering interest from as large a part of society as possible. Over the past five years, this project has resulted in more than 60 conversations with vivid personalities on the art scene as well as in the business world. It has published interviews with Francesca von Habsburg and Bernar Venet as well as Harald Falckenberg, Walter Vanhaerents, Dakis Joannou, Alain Servais, Galila Barzilaï Hollander, Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Ingvild Goetz, Frédéric de Goldschmidt, Axel Haubrok, Egidio Marzona, Jean Pigozzi, Giuliano Gori and many others.
The “Arterritory Conversations with Collectors” concept was developed by Arterritory.com director Una Meistere and editor-in-chief Daiga Rudzāte. The publication’s visual identity was developed by artist Kirils Kirasirovs, one of the most talented graphic designers in Latvia.
