        The Terra Project is an art project initiated by Hannes Egger in commemoration of the outbreak of the First World War, which also reflects on the nature of the commemoration itself, as the project aims to actively participate in commemorative events and to deal with remembrance in an artistic way. It focuses on the events of the first months of the war, at a time when many Tyroleans were already involved, before Italy entered the war in May 1915. From August 1914 to December 1917, Galicia, the easternmost region of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was the scene of the exceedingly bloody Eastern Front, at which many soldiers lost their lives. For this performative art project, soil were be extracted from the former battlefields in Perzemysl (PL) and brought overland to the fortress of Franzensfeste/Fortezza in South Tyrol. The journey was documented as a trip across Central Europe, in other words from a historic front to another historic front. In a corner of the fortress of Franzensfeste/Fortezza, the earth as distributed and potatoes grown in the resultant temporary field. The final performance is a “Potato Festival” at which these potatoes are boiled and served. At the BWA-Gallery in Perzemysl the Terra Project was also shown, as an istallation from 20th June to 8th July 2014. The video shows the installation. Videomaker is Jan Wrobel
