Next Saturday evening 29th the last event of the Place in the Woods will happen! It starts at 6 PM but there is a shuttle busleaving from HfG and the Book Bau Festival at 5.30 PM, or just take your trusted bikes for 15 mins.
Especially for this evening Olga Hohmann will read the texts she wrote over the last 3 months, Susanne Kriemann will read a text, Tamara Goehringer will present an audio piece and Jonathan Mink also has a surprise.
You will also be awaited by a collection of artworks by: Rafael Jörger, Hannah Sakai, Dries Segers, Moritz Appich, Sergio Rochas Chaves, Rafael Lippuner, Lisa Sifkovits, Zhizhong Keene, the Institute for Interspecies Art and Relations & Lukas Kesler. Online you can see additional works by Simon Knebl, Laurel Schwulst and Jonas Grünwald.
A Place in the Woods is an exhibition platform in the form of a temporary sculpture. A billboard has appeared in the woods. For the opening it shows a large photograph by Alexander Theis. There is also an information display case by Hannah Sakai, signage and a mascot by Zhizhong Keene, and a birdhouse by Raphael Jörger and his family.
The project also takes place simultaneously online at a-place-in-the-woods.net, a website that shows what’s happening on site via wild camera and will also grow independently over the next 3 months.
A Place in the Woods is a dual exhibition space for media-artistic stagings on the Internet and in the Hardtwald. The physical basis is the construction of a billboard in a publicly accessible but not exposed location in the woods. By shifting the construction from urban space and advertising context to the non-commercial, rural environment, an artistically and curatorially usable “space” is created that allows conventional perspectives, framings and habits of reception to be thematized or casually undermined.
Cross the Adenauerring at the Wildparkstadion and follow the Stutenseer Allee to the left of the parking lot until the 6th cross street on the left. After about 500m you will find A Place in the Woods on the left side (49.037420, 8.424102). Arrows guide the way.
