After several years abroad, the brothers Christoph Mügge and Sebastian Mügge return to their hometown – the city of Bonn (GER) – where they will approach the city and its complex identity change by artistic means through an expansive, interdisciplinary and experimental site-specific installation.
The exhibition project ultimately revolves around the ongoing transformation from the epicenter of the political
power play of the Bonn Wohlfühl-Republik to the UN Climate Conference and the lofty goal of becoming a kind of
Rhenish Salzburg, in which Beethoven – the city’s pride – is deliberately used for marketing reasons. – Ambitious
projects that manage both cultural and political heritage and perhaps counteract the tendency to fall into oblivion
and be placed in the shadow of nearby metropolises or the new capital Berlin.
