JAZZWOCHE HANNOVER 2019
This year's motto is »Playing across borders« and it has created an experimental field for exploring borders in jazz music and at the same time questioning how political music can be. 3600 m of printed tape were used to playfully stick on posters and venues and to cut through the word »border« again and again. The visual identity is based on the idea of society as a construction site, it is co-designed, torn, sorted and reassembled again, while playing a lot of music! Get out of the comfort zone!

It's getting dark, vision's waning. The feeling for time and space becomes blurred. The only thing that is sharpened is the sense of hearing! In its vocal performance »dämmerts?«, the ensemble appeals to open ears, to people who listen to themselves and the people around them, and thus to fundamental questions of social togetherness.

Is this looted art? The staff of Zeppelin Museum Friedrichshafen has been asking themselves this critical question in view of their collections and have been digging deeper into their own history. At the first view the exhibition architecture shows a classical art presentation. At a second glance the visitors can see behind the scenary and learn about the stories behind certain objects, see how connections of important art dealers are drawn and dive into their multilayered histories which are shown on a mix of semitransparent and opaque materials.
