How do today's artists see pictures by Caspar David Friedrich? The Greifswald Festival Nordischer Klang poses this question to four well-known writers from the Baltic Sea region.

The Danish author Josefine Klougart, the Swedish playwright and director Paula Stenström Öhman, the Polish poet, prose writer and painter Jacek Dehnel and the German writer and actress Emine Sevgi Özdamar took part.

The result is a series of scenes in which the authors confess to their favorite Friedrich painting and create surprising connections between the old paintings and our time in personal texts. These completely different and unexpected approaches to Friedrich's pictorial world demonstrate his unbroken, multifaceted impact.
Musically, the dialog between the texts presented for the first time and Friedrich's famous landscapes will be captured by electronic soundscapes.

An event as part of the Caspar David Friedrich Jubilee 2024.

he Nordic Sound will take place from May 3 to 12, 2024. All information: www.nordischerklang.de
