Fairy Fountain

Co-Making Matters hosted the video-installation Fairy Fountain curated by PILOTENKUECHE.

Step into a world where reality and fiction intertwine. PILOTENKUECHE explored how fairy tales come to life in a series of videos made by over 40 artists.

What captures your imagination when recalling the fairy tales of your youth? How do they resonate with your current work? What stories are being told in today's world? Are you the storyteller, shaping narratives of hope and transformation? Does the fountain bring youth, renewal, or tranquillity? Do you believe your dreams are manifesting without anyone noticing? Have you encountered a fairy in your life?

PILOTENKUECHE posed these questions to the participating artists, encouraging them to delve deeper into the fountain's symbolism and transformations. The exhibition aims to establish a connection between the ‘Märchenbrunnen’ fairy tale fountains in Berlin and Leipzig, bridging the two cities with their shared cultural heritage.
