Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland (JRMiP)
Represented by Yael Bartana & Susanne Sachsse
The Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland calls for the return of 3.300.000 Jews to Poland to symbolize the possibility of our collective imagination – to right the wrongs history has imposed and to reclaim the promise of an utopian future. Members of the movement recognise that Europe needs to be re-thought, that Israel must change to be part of the Middle East and that as citizens we have the responsibility to imagine the world differently. The JRMiP was initiated by Israeli-born artist Yael Bartana in 2007.
Zentrum für Politische Schönheit (ZPS)
Represented by Fabian Eggers, John Kurtz & André Leipold
Zentrum für Politische Schönheit [Centre for Political Beauty] is an assault team exploring moral beauty and human greatness in politics. The basic belief is that the legacy of the Holocaust is rendered void by political apathy, the rejection of refugees and political cowardice. In 2014, the ZPS helped Syrian refugees enter the European Union by adapting the 1938/39 British Kindertransport to the present. In 2014 the ZPS also linked the victims of the Berlin Wall to those at the outer EU borders in a highly debated action.
