WELCOME

EUROPEAN | LANDART | NETWORK

Art in the landscape can take on many forms and this European initiative will explore some of the consequences of commissioning artists to creating new Land Art works in site specific locations in different European countries.


Our connection with the earth is paramount and art makes a significant contribution to our philosophical and cultural perception of the landscape.

The commissioning of new Land Art works at currently four major arts organisations will provide an opportunity to explore the dialogue between man, art and nature through public interaction and education along with inter-European meetings and symposia.

Although the commissioning of new works of art is the centre piece of the activity, analysis will be made of the impact this intervention will have on the particular space and the contribution art in the landscape can make to sustaining the cultural values of landscape in Europe.

Springhornhof Foundation

The Springhornhof Foundation is the original initiator of this network and supports and promotes the notion of artistic engagement with nature, the countryside and village life through a wide-ranging programme of exhibitions, projects and events.

The art association Springhornhof, based in Neuenkirchen in the Lüneburger Heide in the north of Germany, is responsible for the organisation and management of one of Europe’s leading outdoor art projects. In forest glades and meadows, at field margins and lakeshores works of international artists can be experienced. Sculptural and action art, a parcours of banks and a mirror sea, a “park for undesirable skulptures”, etc. open new and unusual perspectives on the rural landscape.
