hier und danach 2020


The Festival for Regional Development
in the Upper Vinschgau, from 2 to 4 October 2020.

A project of the Upper Vinschgau Citizens' Cooperative in collaboration with the University of Bolzano, Faculty of Design.

The experiences of the last six months have shown us how vulnerable our social coexistence is and that our currently prevailing way of doing business provokes multiple crises. This event poses questions about the crisis resistance of the Upper Vinschgau and considers what possible futures could look like that would make our region more resilient.

Examples and impulses will serve as stimuli for discussion.
This in a landscape and in places which are themselves examples of this future.

    The last six months have shown us the vulnerability and dependence of our society. Regional cycles are becoming more important for dealing with the social challenges still to come. This also applies to the artisanal sector. What resources do we have in the Upper Vinschgau and what potential still exists? This is shown by the example of hemp.

  • Futures: Utopia South Tyrol, Utopia Upper Vinschgau.

Short film: Future terre alpine, Lisa Zellner and Federico Bertacchini FUTURE TERRE ALPINE visualises new sustainable and enduring landscapes of the Alpine region 2030.
Using concrete examples of urban and rural change, a possible future is presented.
Through an animated film, new sustainable ways of living become tangible. Immersion in positive future scenarios encourages commitment to eco-social change, full of solidarity, connectedness and hope.

Federico Bertacchini and Lisa Zellner are the founders of FUTURE TERRE ALPINE.
Two eco-social designers who work and live in Bolzano, South Tyrol.
South Tyrol is an area with unique geological and natural characteristics,
which offers an exciting space for possible future developments.
This has supported our two research projects in the field of biodiversity.
The loss of biodiversity has been analysed and considered from different facets in our research. Federico approached this topic with a focus on the decline of pollinators (wild bees), while Lisa approached it from the side of integrated apple production. The deeper we dived into our areas, the more meaningful our information became and the more we were able to connect. FUTURE TERRE ALPINE is thus a common concrete way of thinking ahead, a common way of setting out to reclaim and celebrate biodiversity.

*blues meets alpine folk
David Frank doesn't play commonplace music but local music that can be heard all over the world. His compositions with the Styrian harmonica range from folk music to blues, jazz and folk. Together with Marc Perin, whose style moves between classical fingerstyle and percussive guitar playing, the two artists try to share their musical visions and transport them to the outside world.
