12th KunstFest in Bad Elster

Enige feiten

The renowned spa town of Bad Elster in the heart of the European music and spa region will also be celebrating a historic anniversary in 2024: the town will be celebrating its first documented mention 700 years ago.

From 19 to 21 April 2024. From 19 to 21 April 2024, the cultural and festival town of Bad Elster in the heart of the European spa region of Bavaria, Bohemia and Saxony will once again celebrate a spring-like festival of art in the midst of the blossoming royal grounds of the Saxon State Spa.

The 12th KunstFest will focus on two exciting exhibition openings in the Royal Spa House and the KunstWandelhalle, which are dedicated to textile art in an individually fascinating way. On Friday, 19 April, the new exhibition "Journey into the Unknown" by Thuringian artist Anke Pradel-Schönknecht will open in the gallery of the Königliches Kurhaus at 6.00 pm. The exhibition shows a variety of different relief paintings and art quilts, which are connected by the play with different structures and show the artist's fascination for plastic surfaces and malleable materials.
On the following Saturday, 20 April at 11.00 a.m., the new workshow by artist Britta Ankenbauer will open with "Schichtungen". The Leipzig-based artist primarily uses textiles and paper as materials, which she prefers to work with in layers. As a speciality, the textile artist processes photographs, found objects, but also words and text in order to fragment or deconstruct them and then reconnect them.

In addition, workshops for smocking and monoprints, a personal exhibition tour with the participating artists and an exclusive KunstFest performance "On the soundtrack of the loom" will take place during the art weekend. There will also be chamber music concerts by the Chursächsische Philharmonie in the KunstWandelhalle, show demonstrations will provide an insight into the traditional craft of "spinning & weaving" and the "production of Margaret lace" and a guided tour invites visitors to take an interesting tour along the KunstWeg of the Bad Elster Royal Gardens. The KunstFest Bad Elster is rounded off in the König Albert Theatre with an inspiring dance theatre performance by the Palucca Hochschule Dresden (19.04.), a highly exciting theatre evening on the thriller "The Package" (20.04.) and a concert by the wonderful Barbara Thalheim (21.04.).

Fittingly for this KunstFest weekend, the Royal Gardens of Bad Elster will then shine in a radiant world of lights until midnight. Numerous artistic illuminations creatively visualise the entire historical complex in a whole new dimension. The architectural beauties of Bad Elster can be experienced in a completely new way in atmospheric locations, through shimmering water features and against a glowing natural backdrop: guests walk along illuminated paths to mystical places and illuminated works of art in a world of light - as an evening walk in a sparkling play of lights!
