From 17 Sept - 24 Oct 2020, hinterland galerie hosts a special event devoted to the topic of HOSPITALITY. On 2 October and in the course of a multi-faceted programme, the IMZ contributes a special screening of “Beethoven – The Sound of Nature”, a production by Deutsche Welle.

2020 marks the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven. The Deutsche Welle documentary looks at five different musicians whose work addresses the issues of nature and the environment, including Australian violist + composer Brett Dean, Grammy-winning Indian film music composer Ricky Kej and Ethiopian pop singer Betty G. How does their music resonate in a time where the world faces climate change and environmental devastation?

With this year's focus on HOSPITALITY, hinterland wants to open its space even more – to invite curators, artists, friends from different parts of the world to share their point of views, their hopes and dreams.

“HOSPITALITY is the virtue of a great soul that cares for the whole universe through the ties of humanity…The spirit of commerce, has broken the ties of benevolence between individuals; it has caused much good and evil; [...] easy luxury and a love of interest. This love has replaced the secret movements of nature which formerly linked men through tender and touching bonds”. (Louis, Chevalier de Jaucourt)
