Unpacking Burckhardt continues with a performative night stroll entitled Zwischenlandschaften by artists and performers Inge Nabuurs and Erwin van Doorn. Having intervened during documenta 12 by renaming the streets between Fridericianum and Wilhelmshöhe to “Die Burckhardtstrasse,” Nabuurs and van Doorn illuminate real and fictional traces of what could have been in multiple formats and at various sites. During the stroll roles shift and the unseen becomes visible as the artists enter into dialogue with cultural heritage in transition including archival research, minimal interventions, and documentary art. A further guest, Alicja Melzacka, will discuss themes around the questions, “How does documentation trespass into the realm of art?” and “Is working in public space as urgent as working in the white cube?” before the walk draws to a close at Kulturbahnhof.
