“Hört die Signale – die HfBK Dresden 1933”
Course and exhibition
Shortly after the Nazis came to power, celebrations were held at the Dresden Academy of Arts and immediately the swastika flags were hoisted. One day later, on March 9, 1933, the same spectacle took place at the Academy of Arts and Crafts – albeit amid loud protest: During the ceremony, some 16 students and two alumni gathered in the stairwell and joined in singing the “Internationale.” The exhibition starts with this act of resistance and presents the research results of the seminar of the same name, which is dedicated to the courageous students, but also to the art and cultural politics of Dresden around 1933.

“Doing memory – Historische Sozialraumerkundungen und Erinnerungsarbeit im ehemaligen Fritz-Heckert-Gebiet“
In the concept of “transitional justice”, the aim of this seminar was to scientifically and artistically process the neighborhood history of the Heckert area in Chemnitz in relation to the NSU (National Socialist Underground) to make the remembrance of the crimes and the victims of the NSU visible in public spaces of the urban society. With the research results of the social space analyses, FRITZ was created – a reference to the district magazine that appeared uniquely in 1998.
