A village is put on a pedestal. The village of Heinde in Lower Saxony became the focus of the presentation and development of various art situations in public space, dealing actively with the existing social, scenic and cultural spaces. They acted as catalysts for processes in the village which in the course of the year changed by being visible and invisible.

LandArbeit07 was a public space art project that lasted almost three years.(including preparations and follow up events).

Around two hundred of a total of 1221 residents from the community of Heinde took an active role in the project and were joined by eighty students from the University of Hildesheim, in addition to tutors, artists, and academics.

LandArbeit07 was an art project for an Ort that rapidly became an art project with an Ort* specifically, the village of Heinde near Hildesheim in Lower Saxony. LandArbeit07 had to produce more than just artefacts for contemplation. The plan was to include a variety of art forms with strong ties to the location and the people living there. The goal was participation and equal collaboration without sacrificing the expertise of artists, and without compromising the artistic quality of the project More than thirty initiatives were implemented in close, ongoing collaboration with local citizens.

The introduction of art into the village served as a catalyst for engaging processes specific to Heinde. The works cultivated an awareness of local issues, and encouraged residents to identify with their village.

*Ort in German implies location and community
