Fernweh was a train travelling curatorial symposium exploring the role of travel in art.

The symposium was created by eight curators from Europe and the Americas across rural Scotland in 2013. During their journeys they visited villages, towns and art venues around the country to investigate the relationship between place, hospitality, collaboration, distance and the urban-rural, as well as other matters.
