New work SIC! as part of the exhibition:

H. G. Wells became world famous as the author of utopian and fantastic novels. His great interest in the Soviet Union is less known. His travels there he summed up in the book „Russia in the Shadows“ in 1921. Fabian Reimann has selected significant quotes from the conversation with Lenin, the Dreamer in the Kremlin, in his latest work SIC!. In 1934 Wells interviewed Stalin. The publication „Stalin Wells Talks“ gained great popularity as if gave insight to the USSR. At this time the manipulations of photographs started of which the most famous example is Lenin's speech of 1920 in front of the  Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. Trotsky and Kamenev disappeared from the photography. In Reimann's work, the image is divided into six components, in which the audience also disappearing through Lenin, speeches, population and city. The Raumessay raises questions about the general perplexity of history, which find their answer between steering and indifference.

Cooperation with Phillip Schulze

 

The Long Now is a composition of sound, light, sounds and projections. It deals with the space of of church in general and the perception of time, the perspectives of life and eternity.

From the beginning the a church space has been transcendent. The staged experience of sound and light in the church were exceptionally for centuries. Churches were the place for great social events and rituals. The individual was here physically symbolized the limits of his own existence, which is small compared to the ideas of eternity, which the church tradition writes.

These are the foundations of the cross-sensory and spatial work of Fabian Reimann and Phillip Schulze, which is presented in two phases. The first phase of The Long Now will take place in the summer of 2017 and serves as the basis for the second phase, which is designed for a period of one year. The visitor can not linger the entire time on site. With this, the long-term now reflects the impossibility of comprehending eternity in spite of all knowledge.

In the first phase of The Long Now sounds are modulated out of the building by speakers, while projections direct images of the smallest and largest views of our worlds, on atoms and distant planets.
 

"The Long Now" is being developed within the framework of, STADTLAND: Kirche. (EKD) and the International Building Exhibition (IBA) in Thuringia, funded by the Federal Cultural Foundation and the EU program LEADER, and in close co-operation with the church community of Niedergrunstedt and the municipality of Obergrunstedt.

In cooperation with the Bürgerverein Kolonnadenstraße and members of the Projekt Kaufhaus Joske, the KV – Association for Contemporary Art Leipzig will take the disappearance of the panels as an occasion to reflect in a public event with invited speakers how a memory culture can look like in history and culture Present, remembrance, and action.

»Every time an organ or function frees itself from an old obligation, it invents something new. When the paw or hand is freed from the oppressive load of the support or walking by the upright walk, it changes: it becomes the gripping organ and finally forms the tool«. (Michel Serres)

 BOOKPRESENTATION

SPACE COLONIES

17.06. – 16.00 Uhr Saal 3, DOCK 11

At the beginning of the 1970s US American physicist Gerard K. O’Neill developed the first ideas for colonizing space. Shortly thereafter, Stewart Brand, cybercommunard and editor of the Whole Earth Catalog, took up these ideas and published the book Space Colonies. In this and in other editions of the CoEvolution Quarterly, the issue of whether space might already be colonized in the year 2000 is discussed. Fabian Reimann’s Space Colonies. A Galactic Freeman’s Journal refers to these publications. In his photo essay he assembles historical, present-day, and speculative material, which he combines with fictional and factual stories to create a composite of different images of the world.
