the art-lodge projects are initiated by Katrin Liesenfeld-Jordan and Dirk Liesenfeld, owners of the art-lodge hotel, to support an artist-in-residency programme and to realise a sculpture park with a strong reference to the local environment. In addition, for over 10 years now, a collection of time-based art is growing constantly, which is presented in the hotel and was shown in different exhibitions. more information about the hotel project: art-lodge

sculptures - since we got the permission to show sculptures on our land in 2010, Every Year we invite one or several artists to create and realise an out- or indoor installation. The sculptures and installations in the outdoor area of the art-lodge are interventing with location-specific materials, e.g. findings and rejected things. on one hand the sculptures represent somehow the art-lodge and provide modern art in "touchable" way to the guests as well as to hikers. On the other hand the sculpture project enables young artists to realise public sculptures and to be inspired by the objectives concerning the material. in summer of 2017, the concept of the art-lodge projects was Extended curated by PhiliP Patkowitsch: the direct dialogue with the environmental landscape and the focus on the location is the main objective. six new sculptures will be located at the enlarged sculpture pastures with a newly integrated walking path.
