Artists Night 2022
June 25 and 26, 2022

7th Artists Night

Orangery Darmstadt

This year's Artists Night will take place on June 25 and 26 under the theme “NEUBRUCH” in the Orangery Darmstadt.

The Artists Night is a unique platform for performing and visual artists, musicians and spoken word artists, where advanced and professional artists show their art together. The participating artists come from Darmstadt and the surrounding area as well as from other parts of Germany.

This year's theme captures what's in the air. The definition of the term “NEUBRUCH” can be found in the Duden as follows: “new arable land that has been plowed for the first time”. What figurative meaning does a new break have in our present? For everyone personally, for our country, the international community, our planet? (Climate) political, societal, social? What can a new beginning look like, in terms of content and artistic expression? Where do we need a change, a new beginning?

The visual artists have implemented the theme in installations, paintings, collages and objects. In the performance blocks, the performing artists, musicians and spoken word artists take the listeners into their new beginning.

The Artists Night is a place of beautiful and life-affirming, challenging and questioning art that invites you to reflect about God and the world, to enjoy and recharge your batteries. The cross-disciplinary works of art and performances create special moments for both, audience and artists.

The opening times at the Orangery, Bessunger Str. 44, 64285 Darmstadt are on Saturday, June 25 from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sunday, June 27 from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
