MOTTE has been engaged with the principal of remembrance for several years and initiated projects of “New Forms of Remembrance”.
We’ve asked ourselves: how can history be presented in the future when there are no eyewitnesses left? How do we reach young people, for whom fascism in Europe and the Second World War seem in the distant past? How do we present the history of German National Socialism to children of migrants in Germany?
The project „Sound in the Silence“ was initiated with artist Jens Huckeriede as a way to reach young people through the use of various artistic forms. They are emotionally moved because they are able to express themselves through music, dance, theater, and their own texts. „Sound in the Silence“ succeeds in transferring their questions about history to the present.
The historical significance of the locations is the inspiration for the students and participating artists to engage in an open-ended creative process. They could express their ideas and feelings through text, music, film, theatre and dance. After the death of Jens Huckeriede in 2013 – Dan Wolf continued the project as artistic director.
