walking from weimar to berlin. Vienne Chan with Antonije Buric, Lisa Glauer, Felipe Serro, Roozbeh Tazhibi & "satellites" Jan Lemitz and Pablo Hermann (tech support: Olaf Pfeifer)
On solidarity and collectivity. Solidarity arises from the willingness to experience pain together. The collective initiated by Vienne Chan specifically scheduled the walk to arrive one day after the opening of the exhibition at Gorky Theater, thus making the performative act of actually walking the 269 km in 6 days present through absence.
"On 9 November, 5 artists began walking from the Bauhaus Museum in Weimar to the Imaginary Bauhaus Museum at the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin, as part of the 2nd HerbstSalon.
The 269km journey took 6 days, and loosely traced the Bauhaus Migration during the rise of National Socialism, going from Weimar, to Dessau, and then to Berlin.
Come meet the artists at this talk to hear why they undertook this journey and the experiences they had on the way.
We'd also like to thank our hosts who gave us shelter along the way: Vera, through couchsurfing (Gleina), VL Ludwigstrasse (Halle), Jonathan and his WG (Dessau), and Wolfram (Hagelberg), also couchsurfing.
Participants: Antonije Buric, Filipe Serro, Roozbeh Tazhibi , Lisa Glauer, Vienne Chan (initiator), Pablo Hermann, and Jan Lemitz
