Sound installation STEPS SILENCE
Liquid Penguin Ensemble
Katharina Bihler Stefan Scheib
Introduction, Peter Michael Lupp
Sound sample, Katharina Bihler and Stefan Scheib
Since the Middle Ages, the cultural site Wintringer Chapel on the Wintringer farm has also been a signpost, a place marker, a stopping and orientation point for people in search of a way. A sound installation by the Liquid Penguin Ensemble, developed especially for the location, refers to this. In their multi-channel installation, Katharina Bihler and Stefan Scheib work with the audible aspect of wandering, pilgrimage, walking, as well as with texts that deal with the field of tension between fleetingness and permanence.

Advent Ritual "A Light for Peace in the World"
... in the end it only depends on the fact that we shape life and how we do it ... whether we have a message that contributes to the preservation of this wonderful planet with all its living beings ... and whether in the emerging darkness a spark for the shaping of LebensLicht is carried on.
All guests are invited to light a candle in this spirit.
The country inn of the Wintringer farm offers an Advent fire and mulled wine.

Pilgrimage hike Wintringer farm - Auersmacher
Meditative pilgrimages on the Way of the Stars to the four seasons in the Bliesgau biosphere reserve
The meditative pilgrimages on a section of the European paths of the pilgrims of St. James in the Bliesgau Biosphere Reserve are each integrated into the seasons. They begin at the cultural site Wintringer Chapel and, along the way, focus on the art of the good life: What do we really need?
After an introduction, the "Way of the Stars/Chemin des étoiles" leads past a poetic garden in the direction of Auersmacher. The stage destination is the pilgrims' hostel "Altes Bauernhaus". There we will have coffee and homemade cake. After a pause in the village church, the approximately ten-kilometer, moderately difficult hike leads back across the "Way of the Stars" to the Wintringer farm. The day finds its conclusion with a meditation in the chapel, afterwards there is the possibility to stop at the country inn of the Wintringer farm.
Meeting point: Start at Wintringer farm, Cultural site Wintringer Chapel
Services: Guided tour, coffee & cake in the "Old Farmhouse" in Auersmacher
Cost: 10,- € per person
Guided tour: Peter Michael Lupp

Peter Michael Lupp
The local talks with cultural officer Peter Michael Lupp span the range from cultural history and the restoration of the medieval chapel to the programmatic approach of the annual art exhibitions at the cultural site Wintringer Chapel. This also includes an introduction to the current art installation "The Limits to Growth" by the Munich sculptor Hermann Bigelmayr as well as the references of this extraordinary cultural project to the background and fields of action of the Bliesgau Biosphere Reserve. In 2017, another installation by the artist entitled "The Cross in Nothingness" will provide an opportunity for exchange and discussion on the field of tension between ethics and religion on site.
