Expo Lustwarande

Since 2000, Lustwarande has invited internationally renowned artists and young talents. Ten contemporary artists are now exploring the theme ’Eartheaters’ with figurative and abstract sculptures:

Leyla Aydoslu (DE); Matea Bakula (BA/NL); Olivia Bax (UK); Léa de Cacqueray (FR);  Giulia Cenci (IT);  Nicolas Deshayes (FR); Jonathan van Doornum (NL); Tiril Hasselknippe (NO); Jan Hüskes (DE); Yein Lee (KR).


The exhibition "Eartheaters" confronts us with the state of our planet and human behavior. It highlights various aspects of our changing world, including climate change, the rise of artificial intelligence, and the increasing presence of microplastics. The realization dawns that our actions are ushering in a new geological era: the Anthropocene.

Whether you are an art lover or simply seeking a unique experience in nature, the expo offers something for everyone. Come and discover how young, international artists have been granted complete artistic freedom to create works that challenge and provoke thoughts about the relationship between humanity and our world.
