Wo kommen wir hin. Die Hütte
Die Hütte ‒ Anthropologically, a cabin or tent are often interpreted as primal scenes representing community, stability and tradition. In Henry Thoreau's case, they are symbols of productive retreat; in Ted Kaczynski's case, instead of refuge, they represent radicalism. Both seem to be in blatant contrast to provisional and ever-changing artistic design principles. But is that even true?
Karin Krauthausen, a literature and cultural studies specialist, and composer and drummer Manos Tsangaris talk with writer Kathrin Röggla about why cultural practices on the provisional nature and volatility of the situation are absolutely necessary at present, and what they associate with the notion of “Hütte”. Followed by an intervention by the artist Mark Lammert.
A special event of the project “Wo kommen wir hin”.
