IntraRegionale 2016 – Call for artists
With the project ‚IntraRegionale‘ ten art societies from the governmental district of Hanover (henceforth ‚Region Hannover‘) plan to present selected current international approaches to landscape art. The project will show installations that represent contemporary site-specific art.
The presentation of the works of art takes place in the open within the cultural landscape in the Region Hannover. Every partaking art society offers a different, distinctive rural environment.

Cultured Landscape in Region Hannover – Site of the IntraRegionale 2016
The Region Hannover covers 2.300 square kilometres. Half of its population of 1.1 million people live in the city of Hanover and half in 20 towns and villages in the surrounding region.
Topographically the region of Hannover is situated between outlying foothills of Germany’s central mountains and the flat North German Plain towards the sea. This special situation is expressed by four kinds of cultured landscape: the Deister Mountains to the South, the adjoining Calenberger Bőrder with its valuable soil, the Geest to the north and the River Leine with its meadows wandering through the region. A special sight is offered by the biggest lake in north-west Germany, the Steinhuder Meer, part of the national park of the same name.
Call for tenders
The IntraRegionale 2016 is seeking 10 designs for temporary installations in the landscape of the region of Hanover. The ideas must draw a clear site-specific connection to the surrounding landscape. No thematic or material specifications are set. The unprotected installations will stand outdoors and can be accessed around the clock. However, the pieces of art are expected to be built in such a way that they survive their three and half month exhibition without maintenance.
The call for tenders takes place internationally and aims at professional artists. The procedure of the call for tenders consists of two stages.
Three references of the artist’s previous work are needed for the application. The references should refer to already realised projects in public space.
A jury will select 30 artists for the second stage.
The 30 chosen artists will then hand in their design for one of the selected venues. The jury will then select the ten artists to participate in the IntraRegionale 2016.
