International Scenography Biennial – The Art of Holistic Design
7th – 10th November in Ludwigsburg
The International Scenography Biennial (ISB'13) welcomes its guests with a top-class panel from 7th – 10th November in Ludwigsburg and Stuttgart. The region of Stuttgart is an attraction for well-known representatives of art, design, architecture, museum, film and dance. The biennial's core theme is twofold: space as a consciously designed medium and scenography as a holistic discipline of design. Innovative concepts of space, stagings expressed through dance and artistic approaches to space will be presented to the audience. Quoting Prof. Uwe R. Brückner, main curator of the ISB'13, "Good scenography informs and fascinates; it combines logic and magic."
