An exhibition project about identity and cultural imprints

Kulturzentrum am Münster, Constance

15. 1.- 12. 3. 2017

In cooperation with the Cultural Office of Constancezwischenstck 40

Visual art, poetry slam and a writing workshop are elements of this project: An interdisciplinary and intensive consideration of remembrance and biography, culture and identity, spirituality and religion.

In autumn 2016 I started the project by initializing an internet-discussion with a group of interested individuals. Some of them have formerly lived in Constance, some have only moved there recently. Some went far away and some came from far away. Their texts and photos were integrated in the room installation called :konstanZ.

Adidal Abou-Chamat (Munich), Magda Korsinsky (Berlin) und Julia Wenz (Stuttgart) expand the exhibition by further installations, objects, photographs, video works and drawings.

Marvin Suckut, a well known poetry slammer, holds a workshop with local youngsters. Jeremias Heppeler produces a video from it, which also becomes part of the exhibition.

Literary impetus is given by the author Sudabeh Mohafez. The texts, objects and pictures in the exhibition give many creative writing impulses about current topics around cultural identity.

With the support of the Kunstfonds Konzil, Konstanz, and the Alfred Ritter GmbH  Co KG
