Going Online

Schloss Wiepersdorf with its international and interdisciplinary fellowhip program must remain closed until further notice due to the current restrictions. However, the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf will start the fellowship program in June 2020, but due to the current situation in an interactive online format. This includes encounters in virtual space with the involvement of external experts, the presentation of works on suitable platforms and a series of events via social media. The corresponding requirements are currently being developed.

This expansion will enable all artists and scholars who have been awarded a fellowship for this year to participate in the program despite the Covid 19 pandemic. A total of 15 artists and scholars from Germany and abroad, whose fellowships are funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and Culture of the State of Brandenburg, as well as one artist, who is funded by the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, will take part in the online format between June and August. This ensures that the artists and scholars will be provided with the promised financial resources in the current crisis. The sustainability of this format is a central concern of the Cultural Foundation. Even in times of travel and other restrictions, it will continue to expand the range of activities, diversify opportunities for participation, bridge distances and make Schloss Wiepersdorf accessible from afar.

The project, ART IN A CONFLICTED WORLD, which will take place from September to November and whose six fellowships are financed by the German Federal Foreign Office, is also expected to be carried out in an online format. Information on all artists and scholars of this year can be found on our website

Between war and peace

With the project Zwischen Krieg und Frieden oder die Erkundung eines Zwischenraums (Between War and Peace), documentary film director Sebastian Eschenbach dedicates a video installation to the history of Wiepersdorf Castle and the region from 1945 onwards. The film is using interviews with contemporary witnesses and other people familiar with the area to uncover the different strata, especially the times of upheaval, and to investigate how these upheavals have determined the life in Wiepersdorf and the neighbouring villages to this day. The work is to be presented in two rooms on the ground floor of Schloss Wiepersdorf on the occasion of its reopening.
A trailer (in German language) can be found here.

The video installation Zwischen Krieg und Frieden, produced by the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf, is part of the project Krieg und Frieden. 1945 und die Folgen in Brandenburg – Kulturland Brandenburg 2020.
