The Domshof is one of the most central public squares in Bremen’s city center. Domshof has appeared on historical city maps as early as the Middle Ages. It is a paved urban outdoor space surrounded by buildings on all 4 sides, forming a large-scale, flat urban space of about 120m x 50m. The square is lined by a few trees and has a large water sculpture on its western edge. The buildings surrounding Domshof offer little activity or urban life. Every weekday, the square hosts a local farmer’s market that runs from the morning hours until early afternoon. After the market closes, Domshof functions as an inner-city pedestrian passageway without a roof, in the heart of the city.
Since 2019, between May and September, the OPEN SPACE project of the University of the Arts, enlivens the square and invites cultural professionals of the city to help shape the program. In the future, the prominently located square is to function as a centrally located and attractive place of encounter.
In this sense, the TCC KunstKulturFest sees itself as a contribution to the revitalization of the city center as well as urban development.
