WELCOME TO CHEMNITZ – FLASHMOB
17. June 2023 | 8:00 Uhr - 14:00 UhrEintritt frei
Train stations have always stood for “melting pots” of people, cultures, religions, past and future. With the advent of industrialization in the mid-19th century, the once inconspicuous buildings developed into impressive, innovative representatives of the city. In addition to their economic importance, they retroactively fulfilled social needs and constraints that had become necessary. Travel, escape from everyday life and get to know new things, emotional and geographical border crossings became possible independent of once courtly “permission” and emphasized a new sense of freedom and self-determination. But how is our own identity influenced by this mobility, where can we re-locate ourselves and how can we reorient ourselves to actively live the idea of Europe?
In the context of our European project Rail2Dance, supported by the European Creative Fund, we want to welcome all arriving travellers in Chemnitz! In the form of a flashmob, we mobilized young and old to bring the fascinating flair of former times into the rather dull train stations of today.
