Felix Lüdicke completed training as a gardener and studied landscape architecture at the Technische Universität München (TUM, Munich). In his work as a research associate at TUM, he teaches and conducts research on the subject of artistic interventions as a participatory design process. As a landscape architect and founder of raumzeug – Atelier für Landschaftsarchitektur, he designs, plans and choreographs public open spaces. In 2015 Lüdicke was a Berlin Fellow at the Akademie der Künste, Berlin and in 2019 a fellow of the German Academy in Rome at the Casa Baldi.
The area surrounding Olevano Romano is an ancient cultural landscape. For centuries artists have travelled there to wander and explore, to study and portray its morphological and social dimensions. Today, glancing out a car window must generally suffice to capture this landscape as it is almost impossible to traverse on foot. During my fellowship at the Villa Serpentara, I intend to devote myself to the terrain and its trails. For this purpose, I plan action-oriented research along concealed and lost paths, as well as an exhibition and interventions that include the residents of Olevano.
