is presenting for the 4th time the complete spectrum of contemporary art in the dilapidated structures of the former Erlwein Schlachthof in the Ostragehege in Dresden. The OSTRALE developed in a very short time to one of the most important art festivals in Germany and Europe.
The OSTRALE`010 invited particularly artists who will deal with the still on the ground left arisings and bring them together to new order in the transformic sense of artistic Rites of Passage.
More than 200 artists - painters, sculptors, sound, light, video, concept, installation, action- and performance artists, present International and European, young and established art on 15.000 m² exhibition space and 50.000 m² outside area.
The up to now realised exhibitions 2007, 2008 ans 2009 demonstrate in an impressive way the development of the exhibition area and the Art Centre of the OSTRALE.
The festival´s popularity attests as well the importance and the growing perception of the remarkable project.
After 4.000 visitors in 2007 there have been already 11.000 visitors in 2009 who have found their way to the OSTRALE and its exhibitions and events.
During the three week exhibition duration of the OSTRALE010 the best artwork will be selected to be shown as OUT OF OSTRALE in different European cities after the ending of the festival in Dresden. Each participating citys exhibition will have a duration of approximately 4 weeks. In this manner the OSTRALE presents the highlights of its actual exhibition in different international cities.
To ensure the quality of the shown artwork, the head of the OSTRALE together with the responsible of each international cooperation partner will make a specified choice, as the spectrum of artwork has to be adapted to the respective exhibition spaces. The format of the touring exhibition multiplies the international awareness level not only through its foreign representation, but also through the potential visitor force of the respective host countries.
