We have a common idea. One likes to build, one likes to talk. Some like to discover unused places. All look forward to visitors from other countries and to interesting art.
One is interested in music and bands, one likes theatre. Some want to get involved in what's going on in the city, others just want to have a nice weekend.
One soldering and wiring, one thinking about Chemnitz and Europe. Some like to bring light into the dark, others want to break down barriers. All of them like to get dirty.
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.
Important and in keeping with the festival name is the tradition of the annually changing location. In addition to micro-areas on the Sonnenberg and Brühl, a former prison, an old school, the Rabenstein Palace of Culture, a garden section and abandoned industrial buildings have all been locations for the art festival.
The tours are intended to be a barrier-free festival with a wide range of activities. Admission to all programme points and to the exhibition is free.
