german language

The small exhibition displays a documentation of the campaign “Emergency Rescue Programme” by the Centre for Political Beauty (ZPS – Zentrum für politische Schönheit). The centre has its origins in the lessons of the Holocaust, and considers itself an assault team for the creation of moral beauty, political poetry and human magnanimity. The Centre for Political Beauty stands for an extended form of art and theatre. Art has to cause pain, to antagonise and to provide resistance.
