The summer exhibition of Andreas Oldörp & students HBK Saar was on display from Saturday, July 22, 2017 to Saturday, September 23, 2017. Andreas Oldörp is one of Germany’s best-known sound artists. He also teaches Sound art at the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saar (HBK Saar) in Saarbrücken. He regularly organizes residencies with his students at home and abroad, creating temporary sound exhibitions tailored to the location.

As part of C-TAKT, his students are inspired by the Klankenbos collection: what makes some of the sound installations able to survive in a public environment for more than 10 years? Which materials and techniques are durable enough, how do you, as a sound artist, protect yourself against weather conditions and vandalism, and how do these factors influence the design? Nature is also an important source of inspiration for the creations, as is evident from the title ‘Pfeifen im Walt’ (NL: whistling in the forest cf. whistling in the dark).

After a first visit to Klankenbos in October 2016, the students worked on their own creations for a year. In July 2017 they returned to Neerpelt for the technical realization of the creations on site. The installations will remain standing/hanging/lying from July 21 to September 23, 2017.
