Hortus conclusus – in the garden of the senses

Language navigation

Exhibition information:

The Weiertal is a lively artistic place of reflection, nestled in the middle of a recreational area between hills and forests near the city of Winterthur.

For over 20 years, the cultural venue has been a place of discussion and contemplation that allows visitors to experience nature and art with all their senses. The Weiertal garden, with its old trees and fruit groves, ponds and streams, is home to a wide variety of species.

In summer 2024, newly developed artistic works related to the location will be displayed here, combining landscape and art. Gardens can be havens of hopes and desires. The focus is on the social debate about a future worth living. Artistic works create an immediacy when they appeal to different senses with interactive, participative, haptic and kinetic aspects. Experiential works of art can elicit an emotional response and captivate recipients, with the goal of triggering an examination of the topics of biodiversity, nature and artificiality, resources, change and renewal.
