The festival series "bock auf kunst" started last year in summer 2015 and goes now into the second round.

Concerts and culinary events as well as the bock auf kunst –Treffpunkt complete the artistic programme.

Miriam Hamann, Ohne Schritt

The festival works as temporary think tank and offers space for discussion and reflection. The artistic works deal with the current socio-political situations as well as historical references using different creative means and media while trying to question the current happenings as well as looking at what connects us rather at what separates us. This year the festival focuses on "Wanderung", German term often translated into "wandering" or "moving from one place to another", and migration in a rather general sense such as culture in motion. Some artists deal with these themes in a more subtle way, others in a rather experimental and explicit way. 

At the Neues Fabrikgebäude at Collini Factory Hohenems  Songül Boyraz shows her new photo series "Game Over". Next to "Allah korusun / Gott behüte" produced with Peter Höll, which was already shown at the Istanbul Biennale 2005. The installation "Ohne Schritt" by Miriam Hamann deals with phenomena like series, mass, order and effect. "emoji analogue/the nudes" is a photographic series by Eva Kees, where the dicital original communication form, the Emoji, is translated into an artificial as well reversed analogue image. Michail Michailov’s video work "Refuging" shows the artist himself in a mountain area. His video work throws back one’s own mood whether you offer refuge or are looking for one. Here the question arises where to find a solution for these recurring patterns. The project by TAB (Therese Leick, Philippe Jans, Charles Rauch and Wilhelm Scherübl) with Falk Lennart Kremzow presents in form of a publication a dystopia of Europe. An extra to the regular festival programme is "r e c o l l e c t i o n"  by Rainer Noebauer–Kammerer, a work in public space that was started last year at "bock auf kunst 2015“ and the results can now be seen a photo works.
