A Place in the Woods is a dual exhibition space for media-artistic stagings on the Internet and in the Hardtwald. The physical basis is the construction of a billboard in a publicly accessible but not exposed location in the woods. By shifting the construction from urban space and advertising context to the non-commercial, rural environment, an artistically and curatorially usable “space” is created that allows conventional perspectives, framings and habits of reception to be thematized or casually undermined.
The project also takes place simultaneously online at a-place-in-the-woods.net, a website that shows what’s happening on site via wild camera and will also grow independently over the next 3 months.
Cross the Adenauerring at the Wildparkstadion and follow the Stutenseer Allee to the left of the parking lot until the 6th cross street on the left. After about 500m you will find A Place in the Woods on the left side (49.037420, 8.424102). Arrows guide the way.
