Year 2018

In fall 2019, the stadium in Klagenfurt will be staged in a completely new and different way. The temporary art intervention “FOR FOREST” or “The undiminished appeal of nature” plants 200 trees on the stadium’s lawn that will be publicly accessible for visitors for two months. E.C.O. was commissioned to hold a workshop series to develop an accompanying exhibition. Thereby, the framework program around the forest in the stadium will be extended by a scientific component. It should give the visitors an understanding of the subject of the “habitat forest”. In the workshops, we will work out the thematic contents and the spatial possibilities for the creative implementation together with clients and stakeholders. In the end, the exhibition could not be realised for budgetary reasons.
