AHOI! Interpretations by artists from the region and abroad of their local ports

Planned during the years of Germany’s economic miracle, built in the 1960s and opened in 1965: in the intervening years, the Port of Trier has developed into an established player in the economy of the greater Trier-Luxembourg region. To date, over 40 companies have set up operations on the Port of Trier site. Links to the transport network could hardly be better: rail, road, waterway – whatever the product, the optimum route to or from the customer is available.

To mark the port’s 55th anniversary, we invited ten local artists to produce a contemporary portrayal of it. Using photography, installation art, painting, video art, sound art, graffiti art and graphic art, they interpret the Port of Trier in the European Academy of fine arts in Trier. Five further artists from abroad, each of whom has interpreted their own local port, forge the link to the port’s motto: “From Trier out into the world and from the world to Trier. Export and import. This is where the paths meet.”

The art exhibition has been launched by the Port of Trier, in cooperation with the European Academy of Fine Arts and km9, both also located in Trier. We look forward to welcoming you from 4 March to 17 April 2022 in the art hall of the European Academy of Fine Arts. Admission is free.

PLEASE NOTICE: Due the pandemic our art exhibition unfortunately has to be moved to spring 2022. New date is 4 March to 17 April 2022. We are very sorry but we are looking forward to an unique exhibition of the port of Trier next year. Coming weeks we are going to show you more insights on the working progress of our artists on this page.
