CURRENT is a transdisciplinary festival for art in urban space. The first edition will take place from 9—19 September 2021 in Stuttgart. Installations, performances, discussions and workshops set out to explore the connection between art, architecture and the city.

In the first edition, CURRENT dedicates itself to the porosity. The festival focuses on the unforeseen, breaks in planning, the experimental. Artists will use various formats to respond to specific situations in the urban sphere of Stuttgart, local initiatives and institutions are involved in independent formats – all in relation to and with the ever-unfinished, porous city.


CURRENT is composed of several elements – an exhibition from 9—19 September 2021 in Stuttgart, local cooperations, an accompanying magazine, and discourse formats with a symposium on September 16 and 17 at Kunstverein Wagenhalle.
