WELCOME TO THE 6th WERKLEITZ BIENNALE
The 6th Werkleitz Biennale will take place from 1 to 5 September 2004.
Along with the Werkleitz Gesellschaft itself, the Biennial has moved this year to the City of Halle (Saale), where the international media arts festival will take place for the sixth time. So it is no longer the rural region of Tornitz/Werkleitz that will be the venue of the Werkleitz Biennale, but the no less unique grounds of the 'Volkspark'.
This year, too, numerous artistic contributions will again be presented in a comprehensive exhibition, in film and video programmes, in performances, panels, and other live events.
Under the title 'Common Property/Allgemeingut', the Biennial will address the cultural, social and economic conditions and consequences effected by the tightening of current ownership structures and property rights. The team of curators, comprised of seven producers and mediators, has invited artistic positions that, in view of the debates on intellectual property, raise pivotal questions concerning the access and claim to knowledge and information as well as the demand for common property.
