Today, film maker Peter Roloff, who heads the Reisende Sommer-Republik or Traveling Summer Republic from Bremen Germany announced that the exhibit Utopia: Revisiting a German State in America is about to travel. Roloff is lead Producer of the exhibition, which has just wrapped up a successful stay in Giessen Germany. Packed and ready, it will travel to Bremen, just as the original members of the Giessen Emigration Society did. See you in Bremen in April! Thank you to Giessen, a wonderful host! After Bremen, we travel to Washington DC to the German-American Heritage Foundation’s museum, for September and October; and then on to St. Louis and the Missouri History Museum where it opens on November 22!
The exhibit in Giessen is closed, packed and shipped to Bremen. Now it’s stored somewhere in the labyrinth of modern logistics, or to name it: at BLG Logistics Group.
Please find attached some pictures of the wrap up in Giessen. I would like to point on two pictures for the friends of symbolic images:
– the discarded Christmas Tree and the Utopia poster (whatever it means)
– the dirt on the hand shovel (it’s exactly what remained after we had taken the entire exhibit out of the venue)
The set up of the exhibit in Bremen in the Kulturkirche will begin on March 31, 2014.
Best wishes to everyone everywhere,
