Marx-Engels-Forum – Ja!

Guest of The Middle of Nowhere from May until June 2017: Erik Göngrich

»Marx-Engels-Forum – Ja!« by Erik Göngrich and »City Skins – Marx und Engels« by Various & Gould

A second artistic perspective on the past, present and future of the Marx and Engels Monument will be exhibited alongside the photographic documentation of City Skins: Erik Göngrich presents the third edition of the »Berliner Hefte zu Geschichte und Gegenwart der Stadt« in a lecture and with drawings, photographs and models. He reflects on the Forum’s history and its repeated negotiations: how can an unbuilt area be retained in such a central location, open for changing uses? His proposal is to see art as a starting point and use the physical presence of diverse sculptural markers to develop the urban space.

An exhibition from 20 May to 24 June 2017 in station urbaner kulturen.
