In their work Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla link different media: sculpture, video, sound and performance. At the Kunstmuseen Krefeld in 2009, the artists showed two video projections. A Man Screaming Is Not a Dancing Bear (2008) that focused on the situation in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. How To Appear Invisible (2009) thematised the moment in Berlin when the Palast der Republik at the end of 2008 was finally torn down and this architectural monument from the former GDR vanished. In a pictorially forceful way, Allora & Calzadilla take up the controversial discussions on city planning, historical awareness and political responsibility that led to the events in New Orleans and Berlin. This catalogue highlights these places and their history in the form of an impressive pictorial collage, and the accompanying texts introduce the art of Allora & Calzadilla and examine the Berlin Schlossplatz in its capacity as a 'utopian locality'.
