A Resource for Performing Artists, Scholars and Audiences.
After "Illuxion" and its Art-‐Cabinet-‐prequels in the Wissenschaftshafen, last year's "Musical Art quarter in House Salomon" upcoming:
"Romance 2.0 -‐ Emotions between Love-‐letter, Video Message and Digital Intimacy ␣ at Altstadt Hospital"
nder the auspices of the KulturAnker e.V. with the curators Dr. Karsten Steinmetz and Alexander Biess the art exhibition "Romance 2.0" and various individual events are shown from 1. to 24. June 2012. The following focal points are supposed to attract regional as well as international artists and visitors:
␣ Music ␣ Fine Arts ␣ Theatre, Commemorations ␣ Values in Digitalism ␣ Integration of children and young people
Details: Under the guiding principle "Romance 2.0" the participating organizations will explore and
promote in public new possibilities of sociocultural presentations of different art forms, the maintaining of tradition and the integration of children and young people with and without migration background. The initiators are committed to the promotion of the young, active and student-‐based music-‐ and art scene in Saxony-‐Anhalt.
Already last year's "Salomon" was guided by the maxim to revitalize, enrich and once again but also surprisingly put almost forgotten buildings and Magdeburg's city center back into the awareness of young and older Magdeburger citizens. This year's Cabinet of the Arts ␣ Episode VI focuses on the "Altstadt-‐Hospital" as a place full of emotions, feelings and memories. For a number years this traditional building is vacant and is supposed to be brought back to active life. It is a "Hotspot" which lives from its history and is able to breath again through its initiators. The last locations of the cultural series were as well not about rupture and unreeling but rather about "development", about "revitalizing".
"Romance 2.0" is supposed to make innovative ideas and unconventional musical, literary and visual art worlds with clearly alternative background accessible to a broad public and shall furthermore arouse a new dynamic, electrify and and stimulate Magdeburg's cultural scene. The project enhances the cultural experience for children and young people, invites to participate and offers interesting insights in production and esthetics by events like plays, concerts, workshops, presentations and courses in art history.
