Projekt Kaufhaus Joske

2008-2016 Cindy Schmiedichen Rebecca Wilton Till Gathmann




Together with Till Gathmann, Cindy Schmiedichen and Rebecca Wilton I started in 2008 to take a closer look at the history of a former department store, which used to be owned by a Jewish family and was located in Leipzig Plagwitz. This interest caused extensive researches and finally brought up the Projekt Kaufhaus Joske. The location of the former department store at Karl-Heine-Str. 43, 04229 Leipzig, turned into a temporarily venue. The most significant parts can be named as the History, Stripes, Posters, Space. All venues up to the final symposium are documented here
