Floralia – Munich, 2023

I am currently taking part in the “Floralia” International Mail Art Exhibition at the Kunsttreff Moosach. This exhibition is further integrated in the Flower Power Festival, which takes place from 03.02. – 07.10.2023 all over Munich.

Munich in a floral frenzy. And that for nine months. Indoors and outdoors. In parks and gardens, but also surprisingly and differently. On asphalt squares and canvases, in art spaces, lecture halls and restaurants. Theatrically, musically and literarily. And much more. With hundreds of actors.

Everything revolves around the flower. Its aesthetics. Its sustainability. Its science. It is artistic and natural, fascinating and versatile. As multifaceted as the urban society that participates in the festival in the most diverse areas. Munich celebrates.

At the Flower Power Festival Munich 2023 everything revolves around blossoms, literally but also figuratively. Science, sustainability, plant diversity, garden art, climate change, biodiversity, aesthetics, quality of life – these and many more are conceivable topics that can be staged, be it with exhibitions, workshops, walks, theatre performances, installations and more. Indoors, outdoors and digitally are the festival’s playgrounds.

The Gasteig, Europe’s largest cultural centre, the Munich-Nymphenburg Botanical Garden, BIOTOPIA – Bavaria’s Natural History Museum and the Kunsthalle München are the impetus behind the festival. Many actors can identify with the themes of nature, culture, city and blossom, which describe the core idea of the festival. There are hardly any limits to creativity. Anyone and everyone can participate, that is the basic idea.

In addition to participation, inclusion will play an important role this time. The festival offers the chance to sensitise many people to the topic and at the same time to enable as many people as possible to participate in cultural life. Ideally, this could result in sustainable impulses that move something in our society in the long term.

In the past decades, the depiction of blossoms, flowers, plants or nature in general has always played a major role in the visual arts: Be it that the ornament is used as a stylistic device, as a central, aesthetic-decorative motif, often also symbolically charged. Or whether it is explored thematically by illuminating nature as a habitat or by trying to reflect on and return to nature, especially in the urban environment.
What role does nature play in current contemporary art? How do we reflect on this theme? Do we present an idealised view of the beauty of nature, a “source of power” in aesthetic perception that puts us in a positive mood? As part of our everyday experiences? Or are we portraying new ways of seeing that take into account the influence of humans and their interaction with nature?

I had new experience with the PERIFERIA IMAGINARIA magazine.

PERIFERIA IMAGINARIA is a project of assembled, experimental and rare contemporary art, which was born in the Villa de Móstoles Cultural Centre in 2018 and produced by the Department of Culture. It has the collaboration in its diffusion of the Merchants Federation of Móstoles, and the coordination of Pepe Murciego, artist and co-editor of the magazine La Más Bella.

PERIFERIA IMAGINARIA has created a rolling issue for its fourth edition. A fun and playful cardboard container, shaped like a LETTER P (for Periphery), decorated with arrows and stickers, and mounted on four colourful rubber wheels that allow it to be easily driven to the desired location. A car in which the trunk door is the entrance to the paradise of the seventeen eccentric pages or pieces contained in the magazine.

The signage icons of USTED ESTÁ AQUÍ (YOU ARE HERE) and of TODAS DIRECIONES (ALL DIRECTIONS) mark our location, place us in a certain space or randomly direct us to any other place. They tell us about places and our relationship with them, but also about our existence, our emotions, our human and emotional relationships, our relationship with the world and the people who inhabit it, about the physical and the virtual, in a vital moment in which the idea of distance and the idea of location have to be rethought, walking forward. Both ideas, wandering in a similar and / or contradictory direction, form a conceptual and inspiring part of the PERIFERIA IMAGINARIA 2021 project, the first as the motto of the II International Mail Art Call and the second as the motto of the fourth issue of the assembled, experimental magazine and rare, of the same name.
