It is a Russian-Swiss art project, coordinated by two independent galleries from Saint-Petersburg, FFTN and Kz gallery, with the support of Pro Helvetia Moscow - Swiss Art Council.

NotLand is a notgame, a hybrid virtual landscape for showing art and making walks.

It works on the edge of contemporary art and alternative game design and considers the soft to be a powerful artistic medium. There are four art zones in the virtual landscape of NotLand, which were elaborated by the following artists from Russia and Switzerland: Anna Rotaenko (Moscow), Jürgen Baumann (Wintetour), Till Langeshied (Basel) and Sasha Zubritskaya (Saint-Petersburg).

NotLand reacts on the radically accelerated digitalisation of culture and the fact that this process lacks visual and conceptual diversity. The project was inspired by not-manifesto of "Tale of tales" studio and applies a familiar experience of synthetic environment to representation of art. Deliberating from geographical and physical limits, NotLand gives an opportunity to dive deeper in a space, to move their freely and to observe, scrutinize artefacts.

The project was created with the support of Swiss Art Council Pro Helvetia Moscow.
