Culture Site Wintringer Chapel

Annually changing art projects characterise an anchor point in the Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau

The Wintringer Farm near Kleinblittersdorf is currently being administrated as an organic farm by Lebenshilfe für Menschen mit Behinderung Obere Saar e.V, a non-profit that provides assistance to the handicapped. 

Agriculture and social responsibility have worked hand-in-hand at this exceptional place since the days of the medieval monks who founded it and they combine with the cultural inheritance, still felt here, to create an awareness of ecological agricultural, social responsibility and regional identity.

With the development of the Culture Site Wintringer Chapel, in the remains of the medieval Priory Church located in the heart of the old farm, the culture factor closes the synergy circle. An anchor point is growing here at one of the very gateways to the Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau, where people meet and pursue the benefit on behalf of the entire region for their own highly varied reasons.

The guiding idea behind the Culture Site Wintringer Chapel is to use the particularities of the medieval structure, its poetic power and its storied history in a careful and culturally authentic way. Moreover, the room, which was originally sacral in design, offers a place for contemplation and silence, for retreat and encounter.

In the context of the cultural project per annum, artists take up sensory and intellectual impulses in order to expand and carry forward an independent artistic contribution. The specific agricultural landscape in which the Wintringer Farm is embedded is important. Its artistic programme changes at summer solstice every year in June with a summer festival and a St. John’s Day fire in front of the Chapel.
