On an historical battlefield of the German-French war in 1806 near Jena–Auerstedt, ceramicists and musicians worked together under the theme of “Home”. Their materials were earth/clay and melodies, which symbolised the outer and inner home of mankind. The artists came from Germany and France as well as from other countries which have more recently been in conflict. Their co-operative work is seen as an opportunity for healing.

„This theme is weighted by the fact that the emotions grow stronger, and multiply until they are no longer bearable. Only the work itself is then able to answer the impossible questions. Three weeks work, in order to understand, to live next to one another, on a virtual territory that only exists at the limits. (…) There is no truth, no real moment. The moment of being together, hands and feet in the earth and ears pinned to the note. Only our work can offer us this brotherhood. “
Philippe Godderidge, participating ceramicist
