WATERSCHOOL | A speculation in four seasons

The exhibition is hosted at the historic Hubertusburg Castle, the site of the Peace Treaty of 1763. Water is one of the most valuable resources and acts as a central theme and starting point for extensive reflection. Studio Makkink & Bey developed one of their WaterSchools in a rural context in Germany as an exhibition and accompanying Design Campus summer school.

Hubertusburg Castle – once a royal hunting lodge, military magazine, manufactory, and healthcare facility – is a place of learning for the duration of the exhibition. The historic building showcases innovative approaches to a sustainable and inclusive society with the smallest possible “water footprint”. The exhibition is structured according to the four seasons, to which the areas of domestic, agricultural, aqua, and forestry farming, as well as other local productions, are assigned. Possible future scenarios are developed for these subject areas. Historical and contemporary works from the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, as well as loans from the fields of art, design, and architecture, are important key objects. They serve as the basis for a dialogue between the past and present and open up speculations about possible futures.

Thank you to all the participants for their remarkable works and contributions.
