Sound installation every day 10 am – 6 pm
in the museum's front garden


A project by Volker Hartung and Katja Mand

A sound installation can be heard in the front garden of the museum.
On one side of the large chestnut tree, the questions are read aloud.
They come from a questionnaire by Max Frisch (* May 15, 1911 in Zurich; † April 4, 1991 ibid.) from his diaries on the subject of death.
On the other side of the chestnut we hear answers to those questions from students of Protestant religious education.

The questions from the diaries of Max Frisch's years 1967-1971 were the subject of discussion in Dr. Katja Mand's seminar on "Death as a Topic in Religious Education" in the current semester at the University of Kassel. The project project Resonances revolves around communication in the border area between analog and digital. And it is about the perception of the respective places and situations.

The project is funded and supported by the Stiftung Kulturfonds, the Kulturnetz Kassel and the Cultural Office of the City of Kassel. The project participants are Volker Hartung (visual artist) and Katja Mand (designer, architect and educator).
