SOUNDGARDEN

To celebrate 70 years of Darmstadt Summer Course we would like to set a visual spatial accent in the middle of the city of Darmstadt — SOUNDGARDEN at Karolinenplatz. With the opening project of the Summer Course, Vortex Temporum on 29 July 2016 at Darmstadtium with Rosas and Ictus, SOUNDGARDEN opens its doors as well — until the festival's final on 14 August 2016.

 

 

A pavilion will be featured as a festival center but also as an information point and a small exhibition about the history of the Darmstadt Summer Course. SOUNDGARDEN will send a visible signal into the urban space. But above all, SOUNDGARDEN should become the central place of communication: for all Summer Course participants but also for all interested people from Darmstadt. Karolinenplatz between State Museum and State Archives with direct view to the Herrngarten is an excellent place for our SOUNDGARDEN project. The image of a sounding »greenhouse« that reminds with all its cactuses on John Cage, will serve as the visualized basis for the sculpture. The scenography of the exhibition and some accompanying installations of SOUNDGARDEN are works by students of the Master programs Scenography and Communication, and Sound Design of the Fachhochschule Dortmund. Catering and a bar will be an integral part of SOUNDGARDEN and will be designed by members of the artists collective das blumen.
