EN ROUTE is an artist exchange project between Poland, Spain and Germany. Site-specific art installations will be presented along European roads in fall 2003.

The concept has been developed for motorists and other mobile art consumers. Themes such as dynamics, speed, perception and the fleeting glimpse are the central artistic themes.

The central interest of the participating organizations are the presentation of conceptual art in public spaces and international cooperation.

It starts at the highway A9 exit Brueck/Linthe and continues on route B246 direction Belzig through local villages of the Hohe Flaeming area.

Along tree-lined roads, harvested fields and its typical pine forests the route passes through the district town of Belzig, from there to the next highway entrance Belzig/Niemegk. Driving on the highway direction Berlin the art route is ending at ist starting point.
