Furniture making workshops

Over the coming months, we aim to produce our own furniture for the festival centre and "Grand Hotel" in the theatre's Großes Haus Foyer. In the spirit of Italian designer Enzo Maris - whose 1974 book "Autoprogettazione" contains 17 low-cost, practical furniture designs - we call on volunteers to assist us in this project. All of the furniture built within the scope of the workshops may be engraved with their builder's signature and taken away or donated after the festival.

Play host to the Wiesbaden Biennale!

In August and September, the spirit of artistic awakening, heated debate, exhilarating theatre and international flair will drift through the City of Wiesbaden for ten days. The full festival programme is being kept carefully under wraps by the curators until its official publication in April, but if you simply cannot wait until then, there is a solution: simply invite them to your home for an exclusive foretaste!
