Remebering & Forgetting

In February 2019, Dresden’s cultural institutions, who have come together as #WOD – initiative for an open-minded Dresden, will enter the streets in different parts of the city and into different modes of remembrance. On the occasion of the annual remembrance of Dresden’s destruction in the war in 1945, we wish to invite Dresden’s citizens to reflect with us upon the correlation between memory, history and personal life experiences, and to experience the city as a space for engaging in dialogue and living together. A culture of openness and dialogue among an urban society relies upon a principle of relating to and learning from each other, as well as a habit of listening to one another. Everyone is invited to explore the space of a former public transit bus, which has been transformed into a site of encounter and exchange.

Always # On tour: Video | mobile library | tea & talk
In addition to experimental theater formats, readings and performances (see map with dates) the #WOD-Bus provides hot drinks and a choice of books assorted by Literaturhaus Villa Augustin in order to facilitate informal encounters and exchange. On tour with the bus there are also a few exhibition elements on offer: Which elements of the vast choice our past is offering we want to take with us into the future – this is the core question of the exhibition Große Auswahl. Einpacken für die Zukunft by Memorare Pacem e.V., to be seen from 11th until 16th of February during the opening hours at Centrum-Galerie – as well as at the #WOD-Bus.
Schostakowitschs famous string quartet No 8 is the subject of investigation of young musicians at the Dresdner Landesmusikgymnasium analyzing instrumentalisations of art and history. A short artistic documentation on the project by Zeitgebilde is presented by Kunsthaus Dresden in collaboration with Militärhistorisches Museum and Kultopia gGmBH.
Further artworks based on film are presented by Ostrale e.V. with Café Togo – a film by the artists Musquiqui Chihying & Gregor Kasper reporting on streets named after German colonialists and an initiative, which wants to change this, and Cut it out – a selection of short films by reknown filmmakers from 20 countries all over the world against censorship – an initiative by Goethe Institut.

    Blown by the wind no II - Colour-Performance

    Colour-Performance

    In her works the Dresden based artist Stephanie Lüning explores the impacts of time, coincidence and proportions of volume on a controlled process and cetrain states of matter. In her performance  „Blown by the wind no II“  for example she places colour pigments in circular shapes on the ground. In relation to time and wether conditions these shapes dissolves, mix and finally disappear. The images produced in this process not only testify the singularity, uniqueness and irreversability of the process, but also are of surprising beauty.
