IntraRegionale (english version)

INTRAREGIONALE 2016
CALL FOR ARTISTS
With the project ‘IntraRegionale‘ ten art societies from the governmental district of
Hanover (henceforth ‘Region Hannover‘) plan to present selected current international
approaches to landscape art. The project will show installations that represent
contemporary site-specific art.
The presentation of the works of art takes place in the open within the cultural
landscape in the Region Hannover. Every partaking art society offers a different,
distinctive rural environment.
CULTURED LANDSCAPE IN REGION HANNOVER –
SITE OF THE INTRAREGIONALE 2016
The Region Hannover covers 2.300 square kilometres. Half of its population of
1.1 million people live in the city of Hanover and half in 20 towns and villages in the
surrounding region.
Topographically the region of Hannover is situated between outlying foothills of
Germany‘s central mountains and the flat North German Plain towards the sea. This
special situation is expressed by four kinds of cultured landscape: the Deister
Mountains to the south, the adjoining Calenberger Börde with its valuable soil, the
Geest to the north and the River Leine with its meadows wandering through the
region. A special sight is offered by the biggest lake in north-west Germany, the
Steinhuder Meer, part of the national park of the same name.
Hannover, the capital of Lower Saxony, is also known as the ‘City of Gardens‘. All over
the city one can find a great variety of greenery that extends into the surrounding
countryside. Among it are private and public gardens and parks, small and bigger
lakes (also for swimming), marshlands, forests and meadows. Best accessibility is
provided by well maintained paths and cycle ways, as well as by the public transport
system with its buses, trams and trains. These communal benefits together with art
and culture gave Hanover the cachet ‘garden region Hannover‘ and are among the
reasons why citizens enjoy living here and tourists enjoy their stay in the region.

INTRAREGIONALE 2016 - CALL FOR ARTISTS
CALL FOR TENDERS
The IntraRegionale 2016 is seeking 10 designs for temporary installations in the
landscape of the region of Hanover. The ideas must draw a clear site-specific
connection to the surrounding landscape. No thematic or material specifications are
set. The unprotected installations will stand outdoors and can be accessed around
the clock. However, the pieces of art are expected to be built in such a way that they
survive their three and half month exhibition without maintenance.
The call for tenders takes place internationally and aims at professional artists. The
procedure of the call for tenders consists of two stages.
First stage
Three references of the artist‘s previous work are needed for the application.
The references should refer to already realised projects in public space.
A jury will select 30 artists for the second stage.
Second stage
The 30 chosen artists will then hand in their design for one of the selected
venues. The jury will then select the ten artists to participate in the
IntraRegionale 2016.
THE JURY
The jury consists of seven members. Three of them represent the organising art
societies, three are experts for art in public spaces, one member will be named by the
local government of Region Hannover.
