Stephan Trüby/Philipp Krüpe
Rechte Räume in Frankfurt – Symposion

  • Symposium

The rise of the extreme right in Germany and Europe has architectural-political implications in terms of a political and ideological appropriation of spaces. During this conference in the Saal of Mousonturm, Stefan Trüby, Philipp Krüpe and various other experts will discuss right-wing strategies of assimilating spaces. The evening will more closely examine the architectonic nationalism of European states such as Italy, Poland, Austria and Germany in form of a travelogue with visuals. Afterwards, they will discuss e.g. with Ole Frahm of the performance collective LIGNA, whose projects “Rapture and Rage. Studies on Authoritarian Character” and “Invasion from the Planet of the Apes“ dealt with Frankfurt’s cityscape, what needs to be done and how to do it from the perspectives of architecture, arts and theatre.

The festival „Unfuck my future. How to live together in Europe” is funded within the framework of the Alliance of International Production Houses by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media of Germany as well as the Federal Agency for Civic Education.
