“And if someone were to dig us up in two thousand years, once all knowledge of our written language had disappeared, the cityscape would be the only thing by which we might be judged.”
—Lucius Burckhardt, Stadtplanung und Demokratie (1957)

The series Unpacking Burckhardt continues with a little digging. Digging, that is, into the subterranean layers of landscape and legacy by the three urban pedestrians and practitioners Prof. Dr.-Ing. Helmut Holzapfel (Director of the Centre for Mobility Culture), photographer Monika Nikolic, and Prof. Martin Schmitz (Lucius & Annemarie Burckhardt Professor at Kunsthochschule Kassel), who bring to our attention the traffic of both feet and ideas instigated by Lucius and Annemarie Burckhardt.

Annemarie and Lucius Burckhardt (1930–2012 and 1925–2003) were two unconventional thinkers affiliated with the University of Kassel, whose practice has substantially influenced the development of documenta 14. Their library is currently hosted by documenta 14’s aneducation at Peppermint and gradually unpacked over the course of monthly events. In addition to the evening events, the library is open to readers every Tuesday and Friday from 10 am to 1 pm.
