Unpacking Burckhardt with Birgit Dunkel
Car Tour to the Punk era of the early 1980s in the industrial east of Kassel
26 August, 2 September 2017
5 - 7.30 pm

In the car, passengers slip through different zones of time, social solidarities and “architectural witnesses” – be they structures or invited guests – all the while, listening to original punk music of the 1980s. The focus of Birgit Dunkel’s “Cruising Tour” is the utopian artistic context developed in the early Eighties around the industrial eastern area of Kassel. Here, groups of artists, students and punk musicians lived and worked together in a raw industrial surrounding which inspired the creation of alternative to the markets for art, music and design. During the tour areas such as the legendary Messinghof (first metal craft industry), Salzmann Fabrik and the Sektor on the east side of the Fulda river, can be seen through the eyes of former inhabitants as invited guests share their stories. Members of the legendary Messinghof Gang, artists from Salzmann factory, and the artists’ space Sektor address the confrontation between practices of collective action and economic pressure and dare to share possible solutions. This iteration of the tour is part of an ongoing research and performance project by artist Birgit Dunkel.
