Art Festival Begehungen 2023
Emerging artist, Catherine McEvoy, has been selected to take part in a month long digital residency at Longsight Art Space, leading to an exhibition at Begehungen contemporary art festival in Germany, part of European Capital of Culture 2025 Chemnitz.
Each year the festival is held in different abandoned locations around Chemnitz. This year it will be hosted at Palais Lichtenstein, which has previously been a courthouse, widow’s palace, prisoner of war camp, refugee accommodation, an apartment building and now an exhibition space.
The theme of this year’s festival is ‘collecting’, and will explore timely questions such as, which things are worth preserving? Whose bones should be mummified for collective memory? What should be returned?
