In Dresden, there is a sense of urgency to confront the challenge presented by the current situation of flight and migration and the subsequent resentment that has developed in the local population. The project TOMORROW WE WILL EXPLAIN examines the cityscape of Dresden in the context of the political situation and uses this moment of upheavel to pose urgent questions.
11 international students from the MFA-programme »Kunst im öffentlichen Raum und neue künstlerische Strategien/Public Art and New Artistic Strategies« at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar will visit Dresden for a period of two weeks. During that time, the city will act as a platform for artistic production in public space. The local population’s hope’s, anxieties, and ideas for Dresden’s future in relation to flight and arrival will become part of the artistic process.
TOMORROW WE WILL EXPLAIN is the commencement and artistic prologue of “Am Fluss /At the River”, a project by Kunsthaus Dresden in collaboration with Societaetstheater Dresden. The aim is to provide input in the form of artistic interventions and events along the river Elbe that might initiate thought processes and moments of encounter and promote open and fluid concepts of cultural identity.
