Der Friesische Teppich
"Der Friesische Teppich – ein Gewebe aus Kunst, Kirche und Kommunikation", August bis Oktober 2003
In collaboration with Künstlerhaus Wittmund/Hooksiel, Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven and Kunstverein Cuxhaven; supported by the Hanns-Lilje-Stiftung, the Kulturstiftung der Länder, the State of Lower Saxony and with financial support from EFRE-Fonds.
The project took place in rural Friesland, where Kunstvereins, congregations, artists and residents convened and formed a dialog together. "Friesischer Teppich" brought people together from various social strata who had previously had minimal experience with contemporary art. By engaging them in participatory artistic practices, the project sought to facilitate the exploration of new communication forms and assist the participants in assuming their own responsibility and recognizing their contribution.
Artist Antje Schiffers (PDF, German) was in Cuxhaven, ArtistDoris Koch (PDF, German) in Wilhelmshaven and in Hooksiel Betram Weisshaar/atelier latent (PDF, German). Carmen Mörsch and Nanna Lüth from Resource:Kunst (PDF, German) developed an art education project that brought together the three cities.
A corresponding publication on the project was produced in 2004.
