1. THE UNESCO YEAR OF LIGHT 2015

the international year of light was a global initiative, which would highlight to the citizens of the world the importance of light and optical
technologies in their lives, for their futures, and for the development of society. it was an unique opportunity to inspire, educate, and connect on a global scale.

the unesco’s coordinator accepted to make part of the honorary committee and muze’um L participated with 4 exhibitions starting on 21 XII 2014, 21 III 2015, 21 VI 2015 and 21 IX 2015      http://www.light2015.org

2. THE IMPORTANCE OF THE MUNICIPALITIES SITUATED ON THE LIGHT MERIDIAN

the construction of the line itself could be seen as a matter of independent countries and cities, mayors, aldermen of culture and local owners of a venue or a building ( museum or other cultural edifice) on that line // the filling in with art at the light meridian line could be performed by them selves or by a separate and competent art department, who normally propose a curator..

from the moment that more and more municipalities declare their agreement to cooperate on the light meridian and give their name to the honorary committee,  international proposals will come to fill in those venues with art. (monumental art, land art, performances, concerts, etc )

3. THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ENDING CITIES ON EUROPE & AFRICA

ounce the light meridian has final points on the continents of europe and africa (blankenberge / bel + palamos / esp // algiers / dza + lagos / nga),
the feasibility of the light meridian will start head over heels: there are international associations of monumental sculpture and land art which are desperate to come out: they are equipped to realize artworks and could proceed to donations // important for them is to obtain suitable sites in an international context.
