Lost & Found 2 – an art installation along the moat of the Imperial Castle
The art trail „Lost & Found“ triggered a great response from the public as a special Corona art format in the Nuremberg Stadtpark last autumn. In round two, art installations are on display in the Nuremberg Burggraben between Hallertor and Tiergärtnertor, daily from May 16th to June 20th 2021, between 9 am and 10 pm. Admission is free. Accessible toilets are available.
Visitors of all ages can see the 25 artworks created by 24 artists in ten teams. The open-air exhibition “Lost & Found 2” is accompanied by a series of talks with the title “What’s next? Kunst im Wissenschaft im Gespräch” offered by the inter-university LEONARDO – Center for Creativity and Innovation. In addition, Instagram walks are on offer, themed tours and contributions from local sustainability initiatives.
The project office of the City of Nuremberg’s Culture Division has once again invited artists to collaborate with a partner from another discipline and create a joint work of art. In total, eleven pairs of artists from different disciplines, such as stage design, painting, sculpture, design, architecture, puppet theatre, sound and media art, have been brought together and reacted site-specifically to the impressive medieval ambience of the Nuremberg Burggraben. Their works focus on the pandemic and its impact on our environment. As the enduring corona pandemic breaks up and changes stereotypical behavioural patterns of society, it also creates new topics and redefines values.
Prof. Dr Julia Lehner, head of the Nuremberg’s Department of Culture, said, “With the art trail “Lost & Found 2″, it is possible to give the regional art and culture scene a public platform for their artistic work. In the Nuremberg Burggraben, art and culture become visible and present whilst being completely hygienic. My thanks go to the cultural administration team entrusted with the implementation, the sponsors, but especially to the artists who made the project possible in the first place.”
The special format is made possible through N-ERGIE funding. “We are pleased to commit to ensuring that art and culture are once again present and part of our lives and can be experienced during the next few weeks in the Burggraben. With our audience award, we are also creating an opportunity for direct interaction between art and the public, enabling everyone to join in”, says Heiko Linder, Head of Group Communications at N-ERGIE.
Audience award The main sponsor N-ERGIE is donating an audience award of 5,000 Euros. All visitors are invited to vote for their favorite art team up to and including June 19, 2021. The results will be announced on June 20th at the finissage and online. Tickets for the planetarium in Nuremberg will be raffled off among all participants.
Sponsors In exceptional situations like this, art and culture need sponsors and supporters to whom – more than the marketing concept – the content is important. “Lost & Found 2” is supported by N-ERGIE as the main sponsor. It supports sustainable issues in the city and remains true to its long-term commitment to art: it is now donating the audience award in line with the unusual “Blaue Nacht”. She is supported by the KOCHINVEST group of companies, which is primarily committed to promoting the arts.
