Oxford Spacebase Records

Project presentation

Theater im Pumpenhaus Münster | 15 & 16 September 2021 | 8 p.m.

Münster, the city of the Peace of Westphalia, has a long history of war. Even today, more than 30 military buildings remain, such as the Oxford Barracks in Gievenbeck. A parallel world in a civilian neighbourhood, where for decades the worst case scenario was planned and rehearsed. Before the area is played with an artistic, theatrical intervention at Theater im Pumpenhaus in June 2022, there will be exclusive insights with Oxford Spacebase Records. The audience will be invited on a film tour, meet the first contemporary witnesses, learn more about the history of the site - and discuss layers of history with the artistic team. And what remains of them.

With Stella Maria Adorf, Veit Christoph Baecker, Gilles Grimaître, Julien Mégroz, Michael Taylor, Till Wyler von Ballmoos
