Jeppe Hein (Artist, Studio Jeppe Hein, Berlin)
Panel Nature-Raum-Land, November 19, 4 pm
Jeppe Hein is a Danish artist based in Berlin. He studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Arts in Copenhagen and the Städel Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Frankfurt a. M.
Jeppe Hein is widely known for his production of experiential and interactive artworks that can be positioned at the junction where art, architecture, and technical inventions intersect. Unique in their formal simplicity and notable for their frequent use of humor, his works engage in a lively dialogue with the traditions of Minimalist sculpture and Conceptual art of the 1970s. Jeppe Hein’s works often feature surprising and captivating elements which place spectators at the centre of events and focus on their experience and perception of the surrounding space.
Dara Smith (Lakker, Dublin/Berlin)
Workshop ABC of Scenography (exclusively ONSITE)
Dara Smith is one of the two heads of the Irish electro duo Lakker, who produce acoustic spaces with their minimalist sounds and pulsating sound collages. Hard rhythms alternate with melancholic and harmonic passages. Not without reason they were signed by the legendary Belgian electro label R&S Records (Aphex Twins, Ken Ishii, James Blake, among others)! Lakker’s ambient sound sculptures are complemented by real-time visuals that fuse their music with geometric and abstract images and recordings of nature. Smith presents an audiovisual live set with excerpts from the current Lakker program.

We are looking forward to a diverse Raumwelten program, which will take place in hybrid form for the first time. Many exciting speakers have confirmed their attendance and will be “onsite” if the pandemic situation allows it. Therefore, it is worthwhile to visit Raumwelten at the Karlskaserne Ludwigsburg. Our hygiene concept includes a variety of measures to protect the health of our guests. Should Raumwelten not be able to take place “onsite” due to legal regulations and the pandemic situation in Ludwigsburg, we will of course refund the cost of the tickets purchased.
