In the context of The Wolpertinger Project by Gabi Blum
Departing from Menzinger Straße 118, Munich
The Wolpertinger Project questions and comments on the controversial situation in Munich’s Ober- and Untermenzing, where plots of land in the Neulustheim estate between Waldhorn-, Lechel-, and Menzinger Strasse have reverted to the state of Bavaria after 100 years of hereditary lease and are currently partially unused. The central element is the backdrop of a fragmentary house facade, which is set up on one of the vacant lots. It is the starting point for further interventions in the neighborhood and is accompanied by audiovisual research. The project develops a poetic inventory of a neighborhood in transition and interacts with the residents. It deals with the past and a speculative future of the neighborhood. Tours, screenings and hearings with other guests are planned, as well as a small revival of the former forestry Wolpertinger.
We are more than happy to be invited and part of “The Wolpertinger Project” by Gabi Blum today, tour & talk at 5 pm, meeting point Menzinger Straße 118. We will walk to prominent highlights in the neighborhood and discuss a few houses (old, new, empty, disappeared) with their owners or neighbors, to finally stop at Irene Bauer-Conrad in Lechelstraße and get a studio tour. With bats and horse apples. The Giesinger Brauerei will donate a few beers and there will be handmade Obazda, plus an artist talk moderated by Lena von Geyso with Irene Bauer-Conrad, Gabi Blum and Sandra Hauser, as well as video screenings in the garage.
