The following artists have so far confirmed their participation:
‘Almost all of Ines Braun’s works refer to nature. Research, discovery and experimentation” play a central role in her work. The proximity of the zoological collections is no coincidence: the fascinating, mysterious and rare things of nature have always been the subject of speculation, but also of exploration.
In her works, the artist advocates with ingenuity and passion the preservation of the diversity of species and the fascination with natural processes such as evolution. But humans are also repeatedly staged as nature’s counterparts in an ambiguous way.

Chris Karawidas’ work deals with the dissolution of violence – in a dervish dance, in the past, ritual pacifications from the fields of origin and in silent meditation.
Ralf Witthaus and his team use motorcycles and lawnmowers as drawing pens and draw existing contexts in green areas in 1:1 format. He is interested in what is hidden in the histories of places and architectural and social references.

Cologne-based artist Eberhard Zummach focuses on nature and portrait photography, as well as spatial and floor installations. In his most recent works he eliminates the tension between work and title: Works are at the same time typographies, works, words and titles.
Cologne artist Odo Rumpf works with metal and creates with Cologne’s Off Space Odonien a utopian space for new social ideas.
“Intervene by all means of art!
The artist presents herself in her work in the field of tension between man, society and nature. Isabel Oestreich changes contexts and infiltrates familiar patterns of thought and perception. She invites us to sharpen our senses and to dialogue”.
The relationship between myth and the present plays an important role in Sabine Kunz’s art. In her specific artwork, recourse to myths, cults, consciousnesses and movements is often unconsciously produced. However, they are stimulated by the previous preoccupation with historical-cultural phenomena. Here, knowledge and foresight work together.

Yvonne Diefenbach works with the collage principle, bringing together images and texts from various sources to create a free narrative composition.
The detonator of Schneider’s art is the lyrical reflection of the world. The artist’s texts are the basis of her works, which appear and are complemented by drawings, paintings and printed elements.
