Art in public space
B_Tour Festival 2015,
The airport is the ultimate symbol of the modern world. It is an inbetween space that represents the contemporary hunger for speed and information. Kursdorf is an island of memories, nostalgia and dreams hidden behind the highway noise barrier at the edge of the Leipzig/Halle Airport.
In this tour, the audience was invited to cross a surrealist portal from one biosphere into another while reflecting on human practices that produce and destroy places. The tour were based on short interviews with ex-inhabitants and people connected with Kursdorf.
Afterward work will be continued on the base of Tour experience and video recordings.
