selbstverständlich – mit leerstellen

Jewish life has been a matter of course in Germany for over 1700 years. It is part of the local culture and thus enriches the complexity of society.
But it is also part of the story that Jewish life was repeatedly suppressed, that there was violence against Jewish communities and fellow citizens, even to the point of trying to destroy Jewish life throughout Europe. The Holocaust left empty spaces. Voids that go far beyond the incomprehensible loss of each individual. Gaps in our culture, in our society.

As part of the year of peace 2023 the 4-channel-installation will be presented at the Bonnuskirche Osnabrück.
Opening on sunday, 28.05.23
Obere Martinistraße 54, 49078 Osnabrück

Lange Nacht der Kunst

In 2022 the Kultursekretariat NRW Gütersloh made a survey about the value of culture.
At the Long Night of Art (LangenNachtDerKunst) 2023 Birgit Aßhoff and the Trio Geplante Obsoleszenz translate the output of the survey back into art.
The garden of the Kultursekretariat will be transformed to a living installation made out of objects, sound and performance.

Now. Here. Thought of the world.
How do we look at the world? Which countries do we perceive in which way? Who is important to us?
Where do our food and our clothes come from. What do we export to where?
Which countries do we dream of?
How do our experiences, our professions and origins shape our answers?
