Lebensreform
Germany, And Other Central European Countries
German Lebensreform (life reform) around 1890 till ? 1925 in Germany and Switzerland (even Belgium i just learned) a multitude moovement there was a lot of emphasis on the body, nakedness in the woods, small artists communities in the mountains, but also things which influenced the nazi moovement on hygeene and the culture of the body. But in genertal very alternative and experimental. Not so much have been written about it outside Germany
Earth reform, sexual, social and educational issues were also a part, as well as a new spirituality, and new ways of living.

A lot of present day ecological and green thinking originates from some of these currents and moovements.

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
