About

Ornamenta 2024 is a regenerated cultural programme in the Northern Black Forest region of Germany. It explores notions of updated regionalism and translocal networks through exhibited works, performances and other activities based on a series of open calls and curated exhibitions. Within five different topical neighbourhoods, from the Schmutzige Ecke to Zum Eros, the lnhalatorium, Bad Databrunn, and the Solartal, urgent themes are explored in collaboration with progressive makers and thinkers. First launched in 1989, the first edition of Ornamenta was focused on video art, jewelry, and metal works. For the upcoming edition of Ornamenta 2024 taking place from July until September, the curators use the regional context as the curriculum. Speculating on new behaviours and rituals, imagining their built environments, prototyping daily products and rethinking its ornaments.
