The Thingstätten Art Book
Between 1933 and 1936, so-called Thingstätte were erected as propagandistic open-air theaters and meeting places for National Socialism. Four hundred were planned, and around sixty constructed. Many of these today almost barely known sites, can still be found in Germany, Poland, and Russia. In the form of an interdisciplinary research project, art and documentation, texts and images by twenty-three international artists and scholars facilitate a pluralistic examination of the unusual history of the Thingstätte and the relevance of the past for the present.

Thingstätten | The Relevance of the Past for the Present is both a reference work and a catalogue, in which individual Thingplätze serve as intersections where the perspectives of different artistic or historical investigations overlap.
