“Heimat. Heimweh. Heimatlos."
(Home. Homesick. Homeless.)
This years theme is a reflection of the meanings of “Home” in different countries and cultures: What do we crave for if we think of “Home”? When we think of our childhood?
Of rituals? Of dialects and songs? Of landscapes? Of smells, colours, sounds?
“Home” is a feeling, a desire, a hope.
“Home” is not an interchangeable place.
"Home" gives us social contact, familiarity, values, authenticity.
Especially the younger generation substitutes ”Home” with the job-related jetset lifestyle. Modern nomadism is the result of mobility. A conflicting and always changing condtion of “Home-s”.

„Women of Post-Emancipation“
Frauenbilder des 21. Jahrhundert (Role models of the 21st century)
We all have to manage new challenges in this continuously changing and globalized world. Especially women often have to fight for their right to do with their lives whatever they want. The modern individual is supposed to be efficient and flexible. Especially women often can’t juggle cultural, political and personal values. The conventional role models are obsolete. There is no longer one stereotypical image of women but a lot of individual life concepts that exist side by side.
Five different artistic teams from various nations are exploring the roles of women in their culture.
