Project summary

The BEGEHUNGEN art festival has been taking place in Chemnitz since 2003 - as the city's largest off-campus cultural event. Its trademark is an unconventional and low-threshold approach to art. For this reason, the BEGEHUNGEN are not just a temporary art exhibition, they are a social meeting place for people of the most diverse backgrounds. An extensive festival programme consisting of performances, readings and concerts is also an essential component. Every year the festival takes place at a new location: urban micro-areas of Chemnitz, a former prison, an old school and abandoned industrial buildings. In 2022 and 2023, BEGEHUNGEN will take place in small towns in the Chemnitz region. This year the festival takes place in a 170-year-old Schloss Palais, which is now a vacant museum.
