I 2008 a group of artists started a research project about the fomer Kaufhauses Joske in Leipzig-Plagwitz. The warehouse was owned by the jewish famiy Joske up to the year 934 von der jüdischen Familie Joske betrieben.
The research changed to a project which turned the authentic place to vivid memorial site where exhibitions, lectures, concerts, performances and dicussions took place.

Lately in october 2016 there was  a vast symposium about transferring history to the future in the present, authentic places, traces and the perpectives of art in public space.

Teammember and cofounder, the artist Fabian Reimann presents the Projekt Kaufhaus Joske as a hape of memorizing in art and reflects the  project's artistic and curatorial work.

Christian Gottlieb Priber and contemporary social utopias.

Social utopias of yesterday and today – a recurrent theme in times of crisis and the focus of a project by the Municipal Museums of Zittau. The title “Kingdom Paradise” refers to the unusual story of the only known plan for a worldly utopia in the 18th century. It is associated with the name Christian Gottlieb Priber. Priber, an attorney from the Saxon region of Oberlausitz, took leave of his bourgeois life in Germany in 1735 to resettle in one of the newly founded British colonies in North America. There he joined an Indian tribe and attempted to implement his concept of a commonwealth which he had drafted in secret while in Germany. In a community without private property, race, class or gender, he tried to achieve a paradise on earth. Inspired by this story, this project will develop a multi-disciplinary, long-term project in 2015 in cooperation with the ACC Galerie Weimar. It presents Priber’s utopia in connection with other historic and contemporary utopian visions of human coexistence and their depiction in art.(...)
In addition to fine artists, the project’s participants include film makers, theatre artists, writers, song writers, cultural historians, anthropologists, sociologists and philosophers. The exhibitions in Weimar and Zittau will be accompanied by an extensive programme of readings, interventions, workshops, expeditions to Oberlausitz and discussions. A theatre project will also be developed in cooperation with the Hillersche Villa Sociocultural Centre in Zittau, along with a conference titled UTOPIELABOR (Utopia Laboratory) with researchers, politicians and writers.
