  • About
  • Musik Installationen Nürnberg is a festival for music as performative spatial art. In a departure from the closedness of historically linear thinking and the associated dramaturgies of Western-influenced art music, this festival seeks the openness and expanse of musical landscapes, and thus aims to valorise space and spatiality as a central musical moment of experience. Accordingly, music installations are musical-performative situations that represent a fundamentally different understanding of spatiality and temporality and thus take into account a non-linear understanding of history that tends to situate us in a perpetual, opaque present.

    Formally, they place themselves precisely in an as yet unexplored intermediate field of performing arts, in clear demarcation from already existing art forms: in similar temporality to sound art, but with living musicians’ bodies; in similar intermediality to opera, but without its narrative dramaturgy; in similar devotion to the acoustic as a concert, but without its segmenting temporal politics and stage situation. The Music Installations concentrate on works that create a spatially and temporally de-hierarchised exhibition situation for the audience.

    Musik Installationen Nürnberg is a four-day festival from 7–10 July 2022 that presents eight musical installations at various locations and institutions in Nuremberg more or less simultaneously. The audience is invited to move freely and individually between the installations in the city, getting to know not only the different works but also their context in Nuremberg.

    The festival is founded and directed by the editor and curator Bastian Zimmermann and the composer and curator Laure M. Hiendl. Zimmermann publishes the magazine “Positionen – Texte zur aktuellen Musik” and has worked for many years as a dramaturge for a variety of music theatre and performance productions. Since 2018, he curates the series “Music for Hotel Bars”. Hiendl’s work as a composer and performer moves in the interstitial spaces of concert, performance, music theater, and installation. Hiendl received their doctorate from George Lewis at Columbia University in New York and is an assistant professor* of composition at the University Mozarteum Salzburg.
