Im Zentrum 2019 - Jeseníky / Altvater Festival Of ArT, Literature And MusiC.

Soundscape Fog - Morocco

In the Anti-Atlas mountains of Morocco the largest Fog-Water terrain worldwide was opened in Oktober 2018. 31 CloudFisher constructions provide 16 Berber villages (about 1.150 people) with drinking water for the first time ever. On peak days, the fog collectors harvest up to 80.000 litres of WHO qualified potable water!

Artist Kalle Aldis Laar was invited to contribute to the project and started to work on a sound installation, inspired by the environment and the special weather conditions – resulting in an unique on-site composition: the sound of the fog.

Im Zentrum - Festival 2018

A German-Czech initiative in art and culture.

Together with locals and contemporary witnesses (German as well as Czech), artists, writers and musicians open up a space for encounters and meetings in the Jeseníky / Altvater region. 

The festival events defy categories while embracing all generations and focus on the history of the border region until the displacement of the German-speaking population, that has been repressed until very recently.

Im Zentrum

A german-czech initiative in art and culture. Artists, writers and musicians create a space for future oriented encounters in the region of Jeseníky / Altvater and rediscover the former Sudetenland from a cultural point of view.

The point of departure for the events that cross borders of genres and generations is the history of the border region up until the expulsion of the german-speaking population, pushed aside until now.

Wo mÖchte ich beerdigt werden?

Where would I like to be burried? |
A project on cultural identities.

"Where would I like to be burried?" asks for the location to which I have a lasting afterlife emotional bond. A place that offers some safeness regarding my beliefs or thinking about the people I left behind.


Here is the climat! Call me!
