Palais Bellevue 25 Schöne Aussicht 2. Memories of violent conflict and related questions of territory shape the constellation of works inside the Palais Bellevue, with much of it confronting issues of trauma rooted in various “disasters of war.” Alternately, the palace’s eponymous beautiful view across the sprawling Auepark below, as well as the resident ghosts of two key figures of the Romantic movement, jointly bend the assembly toward an interrogation of landscape as a political project, to nature as culture.

Torwache 29 Brüder-Grimm-Platz 6.It crowns the grand vista afforded by Wilhelmshöher Allee—a view popular with the cream of Nazi Germany’s military crop, who dreamt up grand designs for the so-called Gauhauptstadt Kassel.The Monument to the Victims of Fascism in Auschwitz-Birkenau by Oskar Hansen and paintings by Edi Hila inside the Torwache reflect upon the ideological knot of urban planning and the politics of axial organization. The exterior of the building is enveloped in an installation by Ibrahim Mahama, whose stitched jute sack collage recounts multiple histories of global trade, individual narrations of possession and dispossession, scars of a larger narrative of migration, as well as technologies of masking and camouflage.

Neue Neue Galerie (Neue Hauptpost) 2 Gießbergstraße 22. Echoing and reconfiguring the old post office as a nexus of distribution, the artists featured here work with the axes between Kassel and Athens as lines of departure and arrival. The art on view explores the labor of dissemination—by mail, on horseback, through bodies or rituals. The concept of redistribution broadens to encompass larger questions about the production of history, of how certain political conditions form a canon that in turn produces certain types of artistic labor. Many of the artworks featured in the main hall, on the mezzanine, and on the top floor (which once served as an employee canteen and rest area) generate critical ideas about intersections in history, articulating the site as a continuously evolving and dissolving heterotopia.
Artistes : Rasheed Araeen, The Reading Room (2016/2017) Steel and glass tables, wooden stools, and copies of Third Text journal
