zusammen.HALT Abschlussausstellung

What do Dresden schoolchildren, the former Polish president Lech Wałęsa and the Saxony police have in common?

They explore the question of what can hold societies together – and did so as part of our project of the same name: at zusammen.HALT, young people were able to meet contemporary witnesses, hear their stories and discover historical places. And they asked questions: Where does the boundary of what we have in common begin? Where is the freedom of others restricted? In the GDR, cohesion was often organised under state coercion. At the same time, there were also free spaces within which dissenting groups and members of the opposition sought and found their niches. The project name is a cipher in the search for the cement of society – then in the GDR as well as today.

The final exhibition now brings together the most important findings from two and a half years of teaching GDR history in a final show and presents them to the public in Dresden as well as in other exhibitions in Prague and Gdansk. The vernissage for the final exhibition of our project zusammen.HALT will take place on Wednesday, 13 December 2023, 18:00 at the Bautzner Straße Dresden Memorial. Slam poetry with Kaddi Cutz and music by DJ Franzman will provide great entertainment, while a buffet of tasty treats will cater for your culinary needs.

We look forward to seeing many people involved in the project:

As well as to:

  • Katja Meier (Saxon State Minister of Justice and for Democracy, Europe and Equality)
  • Annekatrin Klepsch (Councillor for Culture, Science and Tourism of the State Capital Dresden)
  • Dr. Anna Kaminsky (Director of the Federal Foundation for the Reappraisal of the SED Dictatorship) and
  • Jörg Kubiessa (State Police President of the Free State of Saxony).
