The new exhibition “Wolfsburg Unlimited. A City as World Laboratory” at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg attempts to rethink Wolfsburg from an artistic perspective: as a testing ground for our present and future with powerful and sometimes irritating messages from the past. “Wolfsburg Unlimited” is concerned with sounding out this very special city’s stories and histories as well as its (im)possibilities. It will explore the distinctive axes of space and time in this corporation headquarter with adjacent housing facilities that was founded in 1938 as the “City of the KdF [Strength through Joy] Car”. Numerous artists will reflect the city in the museum, thus making the city tangible as a “world laboratory.” Swiss artist Rémy Markowitsch will devote his room installation “Nudnik. Forgetting Josef Ganz” completely to Josef Ganz and his role in Volkswagen history. The exhibition will run at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg from 24 April to 11 September 2016.
This website celebrates the life and work of JOSEF GANZ, a Jewish engineer, and the true father of the Volkswagen Beetle concept.
