In 2016 the panels disappeared in the colonnade quarter, which reminded the Ez Chaim synagogue. In 1922, it was the largest Orthodox synagogue in Leipzig and, like many other synagogues and houses of the city, was destroyed in 1938. 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.
