Program Description

The curators and team of Ornamenta invite artists to exhibit or perform their work in a regenerated cultural programme taking place across the Northern Black Forest region in Germany. Through five speculative neighbourhoods we show, discuss and develop new ways of dealing with global issues in local arenas. Artists are invited to contribute to one or more of Ornamenta's neigbhoorhoods: Das Inhalatorium, Das Solartal, Bad Databrunn, Zum Eros and Die Schmutzige Ecke. Send in your work for exhibitions or proposals for new works to be presented as part of the Ornamenta programme in 2023 and 2024.
