Interdisciplinary platform
for arts schools and
academies in NRW

›Feldstärke‹ is a weekend long encounter with the work of students from leading arts schools and academies in the NRW region specialising in varied fields including the performing arts, photography, film, video, installation and media arts. 

As well as offering approx. 40 young artists a shared roof under which to present a self-curated exhibition of their own work to the general public, feldstärke incorporates an internal programme of events which promotes practice orientated interdisciplinary exchange between the students by allowing them time and space to examine the expressive forms and strategies behind their own work, reflect on the points of view of others and try out new ideas together.
