Hygiene rules

For the realization of the event we have an approved hygiene concept of the city of Chemnitz. Basically, we focus on maturity and a sense of responsibility towards your fellow human beings during your visit.
Due to the valid hygiene concept the number of visitors in the exhibition hall G in the Wirkbau is limited. Therefore we ask for understanding and consideration in case of waiting times. Early arrival at the exhibition can help to avoid long waiting times.

Wearing a mouth-nose-cover is mandatory within the exhibition rooms. Please make sure that there is sufficient distance between you and the other guests during your tour of the exhibition.

Mouth and nose protection does not have to be worn outside.

Visitors by the accompanying program events we kindly ask you to wear a mouth-nose cover when entering or leaving the event. This can be taken off at the venue.

Support POCHEN

POCHEN is mainly supported by a voluntary core team of about 8 people interested in art, who are happy to invest time together and sometimes even their vacations to make the exhibition or symposium with its accompanying program possible.

Our work is supported by donations in kind from companies in the region and by funding from local authorities, the state and institutions. The funds come from the Federal Cultural Foundation of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Cultural Foundation of the Free State of Saxony, the special support program "Democracy & Revolution" of the SAB Saxony and the City of Chemnitz.

In order to cover the full costs and at best to have start-up financing for the POCHEN Symposium 2021, we are dependent on your support!
