The HOUSE OF NEW REALITIES is a pop-up museum, a collective artwork, an experimental field and a venue in the heart of Augsburg. It takes place as part of the High Peace Festival – a special holiday that only exists in Augsburg. For this, 55 creative minds will occupy a vacant house at Bäckergasse 4. We will form creative living communities and thus lead through our visions, dreams and nightmares of the future with a thematic thread. In addition to exhibitions in the rooms, there will also be a café to linger in, as well as numerous accompanying events and workshops.
“We hope that the work of many groups and people will become visible and tangible in the HOUSE OF NEW REALITIES. We hope that visitors will walk through the pop-up museum with a smile because they are looking forward to this future. At the same time, we want to create creative structures for the development process so that the participants in the HOUSE OF NEW REALITIES can experience empowerment, visibility and networking.” House of New Realities by Bluespots Productions
I “live” in the flat-sharing community “Remember?” (working title) with 7 other artists and activists. The aim is to have the courage to deal with unpleasant topics, including accepting death as part of life. In my room I show the video installation “Post Mortem” as a large projection on one wall. Deep Vanitas” will be shown on the other three walls. The installation can be experienced during the usual exhibition dates.
I invite visitors to take home their own portrait photo – a Polaroid I will take of them, of course – based on a baroque vanitas subject.
23 July / 6 August, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. each day
