On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the DROSTEI, a non-profit culture center and arts foundation in Pinneberg, the greater area of Hamburg, the art historian and curator Dr. Barbara Aust-Wegemund has been invited to curate a group show and select Danish artists from the fields of fine arts and design.

The curated project titled "GENIUS LOCI - The (good) Spirit of the Space" presents works from the artists' studios as well as space-related artistic projects.

How does a space or local area influence the creativity and creative identity?

How interactive are spirit & space connected?

Where is the home of the (good) spirit, the GENIUS LOCI?

In ancient mythology, the GENIUS LOCI was the saint patron of a place or a temple that causes a positive (or negative?) effect on people and the surroundings. But where can the GENIUS LOCI be found today, in times of globalization - whether in virtual, real, collective spaces, in the public, urban or natural space?

Participating artists:

Ivan Andersen (Painting), Claus Bjerre (Design), Nynne Faerch & Majken Mann (Design), Lise Harlev (Concept Art), Tine Bay Lührssen (Installation), Mads Dahl Pedersen (Painting), Kirsten Schauser (Painting), Hartmut Stockter (Installation),
