Killesberg is the name of the park where Gregor Gog organized the Congress of Vagabunds in 1929. We made a walk towards Killesberg with the guide of Ivonne P. Doderer. It was one of the most interesting experiences during our time in Stuttgart. She was very precise with the stations of the route.
She makes evident how important is to create our own maps.
We began in the Theater Rampe and she made a historical approach to the city of Stuttgart.
It was very important for us that the map was connected since the beginning with history and memory.
She also makes a first reference about the special dimension of the city, absolutely engaged with car industry: Mercedes Benz, Daimmler, Porsche and Bosch factories are here. She made a reference about the clima changes because of this activity, specially about the "industrial snow", an artificial snow that falls in winter.
Ivonne talked about the urban planning and about Stuttgart 21, the social and cultural resistence against a big transformation of the main train station of the city. More info about this, soon.
Das Gerber, a new investment in Stuttgart. How many shopping malls more we need?
Close to the space of the investors is "time of cannibals"...
Tasya Krugovykh needs a rest, in front of Württembergisher Kunstverein Stuttgart, a contemporary art space. We met there our friends Iris Dressler and Hans D. Christ, Directors of this space. It was a pleasure to meet them and to have conversations with them during our time in the city.
