JOACHIM ECKL - born on the river Große Mühl where he is running “The HEIM.ART®-Station/Neufelden”, a former warehouse as an “artistic field”. He regards himself as a “social engineer”. Eckl generates impulses for “social sculptures” through creating jointly experiences. Water plays a central role in this work: He understands and uses it as basic element of human interaction. His “river to river-project” brings together rivers and people from all over the world: This generates social warmth. Currently he is working on realizing “Draw the Danube – Build a Bridge” – a project based on the collaboration of 2000 people along the whole stream of the Danube.
