BAHNSINN : Kulturbahn? Oder Nur-bahnhof? #3

There was a bitter sweet performance's night. On 31.Dec.2023 in the evening, participants of project PIRATEN KANAL KASSEL made a protest demonstration against gentrification by Deutsche Bahn under the title of "BAHNSINN : KULTURBAHNHOF? ODER NUR-BAHNHOF?" at Kassel central station. In fact, the behind story of this new year's event in public places is somewhat bleak. DB has decided not to extend individual contracts with local artists in Franz Ulrich street which is located just behind Kassel central station, and as a result all nearby artists had to leave their studios by the end of December 2023.

The event supposed to start at 4pm, but it was delayed around 1 and half hour due to technical problems at Franz Ulrich. When the first performance began, Daniel Hofmann, dressed in a ticket machine costume, and Tobias Sauer, dressed in an East German military uniform reminiscent of a German railway official, began to issue tickets to the audience.









The second show was planned by Fabian Gimpel and Spiders at Stellwerk but also canceled because of same problems as Franz Ulrich. Anyway Tobias and Daniel made an interview with the reporter of HNA in front of Stellwerk.





(On 08.Jan.2024, we had another performance day for Fabian Gimpel.)






The third show was released by Daniel Hofmann and Vishnoir Kim at the piano hall of the Kassel central station. It consists of Daniel's playing piano and Vishnoir's performance of the body extension with costumes.











Tobias Sauer read the statement against the gentrification by Deutsche Bahn at the lobby of Bali Kinos. After this performance, the fourth shows were two different sound stages by Joshua Weitzel & Nagai Chie and by Spiders.





The last stage was film screening at Bali Kinos. 9 films were selected by Tobias Sauer and Smilla Siebenschock. It started at 7:30 and took around 2 hours.

We had general rehearsals before one day at Kassel central station. Bali Kinos, Stellwerk, Piano hall in the station and Franz Ulrich will be the stages of our event. Tobias Sauer recruited participants for this event, Fabian Gimpel designed the poster, Christoph Neugebauer is the main cameraman, and Alisa Siebert is the secondary cameraman.








This is the final poster for this event.
The main logo is an imitation of Deutsche Bahn's official logo.

BAHNSINN : Kulturbahn? Oder Nur-bahnhof? #1

There was a bitter sweet performance's night.

We had the first meeting for organizing this project since beginning of December 2023, and continued discussions in Samuel Nerl's atelier on Franz Ulrich Str. 18d, Kassel. Participants suggested interesting short performances and accepted some of ideas, and ultimately decided on the order of each performance.
