Wasser.Zeichen – Reading by GEDOK authors

Saturday, April 16, 2022, 3:00 p.m.
Castle Park Wiepersdorf (in German language)

Eleven female authors from GEDOK, the Association of Communities of Women Artists and Art Supporters, came together from all over Germany in April for a group fellowship at Wiepersdorf Castle to explore the theme of water from different perspectives.

Under the title Wasser.Zeichen (Water Marks) they are working together on an anthology. The project Water.Zeichen opens up a broad range of content, from political implications, such as the global water economy, water scarcity or abundance, to scientific and historical, philosophical and, above all, artistic facets.

In the park of Wiepersdorf Castle, texts will be presented in excerpts during a picnic. Guests are asked to bring food if desired. In case of bad weather, the reading will be moved to one of the interior rooms.
