The director of the triennial, Annely Köster is impressed with the high artistic quality of the artworks: 'The pupils and curators have shown dedicated depth in their research of this year's topic Art and Science, amazing creativity in the artistic interpretation and also meticulous technical skills. I strongly recommend the international contemporary art circles to come and have a look and spot some future talents here.'
