The art, science & business program at Akademie Schloss Solitude turns 15 and will celebrate its successful existence and joy of experimentation together with current fellows in the form of a unique short festival. On four days in February and March the Akademie will be transformed into an open laboratory and will treat you to unusual encounters with new formats. Within the framework of the current central topic Biographies & the Production of Space fictional stories of disappearances will be told; a collective map of personal experiences with monetary systems will be developed; sounds of the environment will be turned into listening experiments; a drawing studio for spatial biographies will be expanded in culinary form, and much more. Everyone is cordially invited to join in!
