Do you know the cultural place Weiertal? We became aware of this special place through one of the always worth reading articles “I’ve never been to …” by Max Küng in DAS MAGAZIN. Admittedly, we had heard of the Kulturort Weiertal before.

This year’s seventh edition of the Biennale Kulturort Weiertal, entitled “VORÜBER_GEHEND, Idylle und Künstlichkeit”, is, however, particularly worth seeing, not least thanks to contributions by renowned artists huber.huber, Not Vital or Roman Signer.

They want to offer visitors to the Biennale in the Weiertal cultural venue access to art in an unusual place, combined with the aspiration to bring art together with nature.

Based on a current concept of sculpture, which today incorporates a wide variety of media, site-specific objects and space-related interventions are presented, which enter into a dialogue with each other and relate to the site in terms of content, form or material.

In the process, the scope between nature, the idyllic nature of the park and artificiality is explored.
