TRADING STORIES (out of print!)

Carolin Knebel, Phyllis Kiehl (Eds.): 16 pages, 13 illustrations, German

Referencing the exhibition entitled “APOLLO” shown in the Green Room of the Weltkulturen Museum from 10 July - 11 August 2013, this publication conveys the flair of that project.

In the spring 2013, nine artists spent one month at the Villa Lugaresi in Bellaria, a small town on the Adriatic coast, to re-open "Cinema-Teatro Apollo", a former picture-house. Together with the town of Bellaria, the cinema and villa have undergone several transformations over the last 100 years. In re-opening the cinema, the group attempts to let different changes and times collapse and overlap.

The book documents the contemporary ethnographical and artistic praxis of former and current students of the Städelschule while at the same time leaving sufficient scope for readers to interpret and imagine the “Cinema-Teatro Apollo”.
