Made in Kaisersaschern New York. Katalog zur Ausstellung im Deutschen Generalkonsulat, New York
The fictional town of Kaisersaschern from Thomas Manns novel "Doctor Faustus" lies below Halle an der Saale. And his location is the imaginary centre for Bazon Brockss concept for an "educational trail of historical imagination". This "educational trail" can be fascinatingly regarded as the intention of the grand tour of Rüdiger Giebler & Moritz Götze. The two painters have been friends for thirty years. During this time they have often exhibited together, worked together and embarked on numerous travels. With its wrong-headed, interrupted history that was nonetheless stable and tranquil over long periods of time, Central Germany is a source of inspiration rich in imagery. The most disparate of biographies have crossed paths between the Harz mountains and the river Oder. They created a space filled with narrations. This is a region of mightty parks, of industrial landscapes, battlefields and nature reserves.
