The REPUBLIC OF RINGENBERG - a new country in the heart of Europe, a THIRD PLACE OF MEETING and a kingdom for the arts.
The REPUBLIC OF RINGENBERG was founded on 13 November 2021 by MOFFcollective and has its seat of government in the castle of Ringenberg, Hamminkeln.
MOFF is an artists’ collective that aims to create art that can be experienced and shaped by all members of society.
MOFF always works as a team of artists and invites other creative minds to join the projects in order to be transdisciplinary and, depending on the form of the project and its goal, to be active in a diverse and multi-media creative way.
For their participative and location-based project IN ALLER OFFENHEIT – EINHAUSUNG, the collective works in Ringenberg castle and in the public space of the city of Hamminkeln. The stay of the collective is based on a process-related and open-ended work practice and is designed as a cooperation and transdisciplinary work on site with citizens of Hamminkeln. For the duration of the residency, MOFF will install a scaffolding in varying places around the castle. The scaffolding, which is usually found on construction sites, anticipates the reconstruction that Ringenberg castle will undergo in the next years. The material is sponsored by local citizens and businesses in Hamminkeln and will be used as an artspace: as a stage for performance, video, sound and, in December, as a booth for the annual Hamminkeln christmas market.
