ANBAHNUNG | PRIHOD | PARTENZA
Sites and Sides to the Railway
project is a reminiscence on the railway as a form of transport that once »united
peoples« in this region. The participants will be introduced to the bitter-sweet
delights of the landscape and to a few of the less well-known sides to the history
of the region. Special attention will be paid to the culture of the railway
employees and to the history of working people.
ANBAHNUNG is set up as a twelve-hour »open-air exhibition«: A meandering
rail journey evolves like a walk-through sculpture, beside which the
landscape unfolds like a film. Individual »Frames« or »Stills«
have specific »Markings« to make them recognisable. Buildings or
outdoor locations which are significant for their cultural and historical »relations
and connections« in the region are given particular prominence. A film
director is the tour leader, and the group itself part of the atmosphere.
