Ornamenta prologue-exhibition with a series of events throughout the Northern Black Forest Region.

Join the official kick-off on Fri. May 12 at 6pm.

Transferium 2023 offers a glimpse into ORNAMENTA 2024, set to take place in the Northern Black Forest region. Monthly events and exhibitions bring together the speculative neighborhoods of Bad Databrunn, Zum Eros, Schmutzige Ecke, Inhalatorium, and Solartal at projectspace A.K.T; in Pforzheim, as well as in various events across the region. From July to October we rehearse thematic excursions composed of solo- and group exhibitions, events and exchange formats, which will also guide visitors into the region during ORNAMENTA 2024 following the narrative of five thematic neighbourhoods. Join us on the Transferium 2023 event parcours and get a preview of some of the unusual locations hosting Ornamenta in the summer of 2024. Every month we present collaborative encounters between entrepreneurs, designers, institutions, associations and artists which will be further developed and prototyped until the official start next year of ORNAMENTA 2024.
