In Dark Gardens we live

Andrea Lehmann has been working on the Donaulände since autumn and, together with STWST, is creating an artistic concept about the spatial and public areas in the urban wild growth area. The background is the Danube Shore itself, which is operated by STWST at Danube kilometre 2135. Currently, an expanded concept of permaculture is also being developed, which Andrea Lehmann has already practised several times in her artistic work In Gardens we live and which will be expanded in the context of this year's Dunkellände. New lines will emerge between English and Japanese garden design, as well as various object and image fragments between wood cutting practice and artistic intervention. For the time being, the ongoing work can be seen as settings in public space, on individual walks to maintain physical and mental health during the recent lockdown. Presentations will follow later.

We have a Situation here

With the title We have a Situation here, Leo Schatzl describes the temporary occupation of public space by three prototypical mobile housings. The mobile cabins on car trailers stand for warmth - food - art and thus for basic social needs and social necessities. We have a Situation here forms metaphorical places and events with warmth - food - art and follows the idea of an anarchic economy of small units.

We have a Situation here will be installed as a setting in public space on 30 November. It will happen without openings, with artistic contributions by: Walentina Ammann, Jana Ehls, Mimi Neitsch, David Moises and Christina Hartl-Prager, Blanca Rada-Roldan, Simon Reitmann, Mathias Schlägel, Jonathan Weiss and others.

We have a Situation here / Work in Progress

Presented WORKS:

Jana Ehls, Wild Benches, 2021

The static SITuation is getting into motion - the 'Wild Benches' created last year as part of the project “we have a Situation here” are being installed in a new context: on Monday, 24 January, you can swing under the Nibelungen Bridge with a view of the Danube. In the following weeks, the bench will continue to be on view (and used) in one of the exhibition huts.


Nobody, Intermezzo, 2021 / Simon Reitmann, Object (Title to come), 2021


Mimi Neitsch, Crew, 2021

Due to the crises triggered by the pandemic, many women* and people who are read as female find themselves confronted again with conservative role attributions and a threat to hard-won rights. The examination of private and public space and their ascribed division into female and male in the binary gender system is at the centre of this work. Through the artistic practice, the 'skate crew' is negotiated, as a group that gains public space with its number of members and is therefore a significant tool for political-feminist action.

Appendix: Halme

On view on the Lände since summer: Simon Pfeiffer's Halme, iron, 40x40x600cm, 2021.

A Text is published in Versorgerin 132.

Simon Pfeiffer's work Halme was also created in 2021 as part of Leo Schatzl's course “Intermediary Laboratories” and the project “We have a SITuation here”.
“Every medium has its own language. I take this language and change it. The process creates new dimensions. What is created helps me express what I cannot put into words. It persists without me, stimulating the viewer mentally and emotionally, depending on each individual's perception.”
