for the
on Sunday the first of July

Admittance at all times, entrance free

The stage is extended to include the garden, the foyer, and the exhibition rooms
“daHeim: glances into fugitive lives”
The performance day will be the exhibition's finissage.

"My kingdom is not where I live. My kingdom is where I share my thoughts. This is where my friends are too."

Iyas Sari is one of thirty protagonists who have been dealing with the concept of humanity since February 2017 on the exhibition’s stage. The exhibition’s installations and drawings, which speak of lost everyday life and ruined countries, form the foundation for the resurrection of a kingdom whose palaces are located in the world of thought.

In a four-month process of testing and exploring, the stories and thoughts of people who barefootedly entered Europe's shores have been transformed into movement, sound, and installations. Epics, questionnaires, poems and word fragments form the framework of the 7-hour performance: Gilgamesh and Enkidu, Afamia and the damask rose, people, lions and mice, rights and facts. Metal bed percussion, moving images, the oud sounds well-tempered. A joke – an hour of silence. Memories and presence in mattresses. Foam-crowned heads in tears. Without food or housing. „Who cares! Who cares!“ sings the choir at the 7th hour.

The golden rescue foil is blowing in the wind.
