Zur Projektseite

The CfL on Tour: Following in the footsteps of the novel Fräulein Nettes kurzer Sommer (Miss Nette's Short Summer) by Karen Duve, we discover the horse country of Westphalia through literature. Together with many other artists, the author and singer Bettina Bruns will travel from Hülshoff Castle to Bökerhof and back again – bringing music, texts and conversations with them. We can expect a traveling festival, a traveling circus of a special kind!

Documentary short film about the ride of Karen Duve and Bettina Bruns.
From August 29, 2021 to September 6, 2021, the writer Karen Duve and the singer Bettina Bruns traveled from Münster to Brakel - on horseback. Following in the footsteps of the poet Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, they rode through Westphalia and learned a few things about distances and travel. In the age of the high-speed train, they switched to four hooves and put their trust in the beauty of slowness.

A liberation from fast travel or an attempt to slow down to Droste speed that was doomed to failure from the start? Can Westphalia be better understood through encounters along the way? Where do we end up if we follow Droste-Hülshoff's travel descriptions on asphalted roads and who else is on the way? Are we getting closer to the past? Or only to our limits? In this documentary short film by Robin Junicke, we are there live for a day, when saddle straps and strings of patience break and corn monocultures unfold their magic.

At the end of the adventure, we will be wiser by some travel wisdom and perseverance slogans and know the two artists on horseback a little bit better. Thematically and aesthetically appropriate, we will show the film in the Manege of the Westphalian Horse Museum.

From Saturday at 12:00 until Sunday evening.
