SOMMERFEST 2022 is getting closer, so we want to take a further look into this year’s theme: »Hidden Traces«.
The actions of humans have interfered massively with the biological and geological processes of Planet Earth. Sophisticated technologies have ensured that the impact of these human activities on ecological and social systems has reached global proportions, with the interconnections of technology, politics and ecology revealed radically in this context. Moreover, these processes and systems continue to bear the stamp of colonialism to this day. Akademie Schloss Solitude fellows will be scouting out new potential for artistic action at this year’s Summer Festival. Where and how are (inter)dependencies revealed in the man-made era? What is the significance of artistic action for social, political and ecological spaces?
In the next weeks we will share some insights of the varied program of performances, video installations, readings, concerts, workshops and (collective) exhibitions with you.
We look forward to seeing you at the Festival! July 1, 2022 from 5 to 11 pm.
