About

We all have images of haystacks in our head. Monet painted nineteen. Piled up dried grass, harvested and formatted in a group effort. Different looks in different countries. Most Haystacks now are large round cylinders wrapped in green or black plastic.

Since 2013 Kathrin Böhm/Myvillages is organising occasional events to talk about rural projects and practices, our relationships with the rural and rural-urban connections – always keeping in mind that we are meeting in London to have these conversations.
