Access to unspoiled nature has become a luxury for many Europeans. How can the towns and villages in proximity to the Black Forest take center stage at offering alternative modes of conviviality and narratives around kinship to those of urban metropolis? In the thematic neighbourhood Zum Eros we embark on a quest for all types of love and affection in the mythical landscapes of the Northern Black Forest. The pristine Schwarzwald is home to many legends, myths, and fairytales representing livelihood and fertility. Today’s revised family compositions and new types of romantic relationships are paving the way for alternative ceremonies and celebrations. How to fall in love with a tree, idolise a bird, or make love to a stream? At the end of a trip from the city to the forest, Eros awaits us – inaugurating all kinds of new devotions.
