DING DONG! Art Festival 2006

for large view
In April 2006 the interdisciplinary art exhibition and festival, DING DONG!, received wild applause in Hamburg. Instead of presenting completed works, DING DONG! presented original pieces of art at developmental stages, thereby giving a wider public direct access to the artists and their ideas.

DING DONG! was instigated by the Senseo® Art Initiative as a means of highlighting its involvement in the international art scene — an involvement that places great importance on the continuing exchange of ideas.

This catalogue reviews the ideas that underlie the project, the prevailing circumstances and principles that enabled it to excite the international art world, and why DING DONG! became the talk of town. It presents all of the artists and their works together with the project team and highlights of the supporting program.

Ding Dong!, the first festival staged by the Senseo® Art Initiative, was a unique art project with more than 150 participating artists and around 30.000 visitors in three weeks. Conceptualized as an open laboratory, the festival functioned as a meeting point for people of all ages and diverse social backgrounds. Ding Dong! attracted massive attention from neighbours, local authorities, artists and theorists, agencies and creative boards and finally, mass-media.
Concept and Production by Derrick Richards, Kim Pörksen, Christopher Müller, Tim Kaiser, Tim John, Thomas Markus Schumann, Jessica Broscheit
