State competition Perform Your Homeland
On behalf of the State Chancellery of the Saarland, the State Academy for Music and Cultural Education again organized this year's state competition Perform your homeland. The competition is aimed at children and young people who explore a cultural site in their district through music and dance. The resulting performances are captured in extraordinary films that also highlight Saarland's cultural sites.
In cooperation with the Regional Association of Saarbrücken and the Robert Schumann Gymnasium in Saarlouis, a film was made at the Cultural site Wintringer Chapel with the title: "Along the Milky Way" in Gothic and Contemporary. This contribution has received the first prize!
The vote of the jury:
A very convincing concept, well thought out.
Relating music, dance and Cultural site is very well done.
The video takes you along, draws you into the performance.

Exhibition Bliesgau - Messages of a Landscape
Works by artists Rudolf Schwarz and Bernd Janes promote the poetry and preservation of an old cultural landscape in the Historic City Hall Kleinblittersdorf
The historic city hall of Kleinblittersdorf has been the venue for art exhibitions for a long time and is therefore part of the network of places of art and culture in the Regional Association of Saarbrücken. On the initiative of the Regional Association of Saarbrücken and the municipality of Kleinblittersdorf, it is hoped that in the future the themes of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau will also be addressed locally through the language of art. The artist Vera Loos will curate the art exhibitions.
For the opening, the artists Rudolf Schwarz and Bernd Janes could be won to show works that are readable as subtle messages of the specific cultural landscape of the Bliesgau.
Architect, building ecologist and artist Bernd Janes highlights the unmistakable earth color of this landscape with 7 panels and 7 rammed earth bodies, which he created from the loamy shell limestone soil of the Bliesgau biosphere. It is based on subtle differences of the loamy shell limestone. Lyrical texts written by the Saarland poet Johannes Kühn especially for these works of art open up dialogues that allow deeper sensual access to the very own identity of the Bliesgau landscape.
KunstSchäfer Rudolf Schwarz invites with his conceptual artistic work "BLIESGAUHOCKER" to take a seat to trace the deeper mission of his work. Through the symbol or methodology of "Mobile - UNESCO-

Curator Vera Loos and cultural officer Peter Michael Lupp introduced the artists and their works. Saxophonist Hartmut Oßwald performed musical reflections on the theme.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday from 8:30 am - 3:30 pm (last Friday of the month until 12:00 pm).
