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.
Supported by the UNESCO City of Media Arts Karlsruhe 2022 project support program for media art.
