The culture containers have moved to Augsburg!

The culture containers have moved to Augsburg!

At the Bahnpark, theKunstBauStelle is developing a cultural quarter for the Hochfeld district.

Landsberg/Augsburg: Like railway carriages, four black and white containers now stand in front of the Bahnpark. “Not to be moved, but to bring movement into the district,” says Wolfgang Hauck, initiator of the project.


The cultural association dieKunstBauStelle from Landsberg am Lech has expanded its activities to Augsburg after starting in Landsberg in 2014 with 35 socio-cultural projects. The association had to give up its premises in Landsberg in 2022 and subsequently developed decentralised cultural work with mobile “cultural stations” in converted construction containers in the district.
Various projects have already been successfully realised in the Bahnpark Augsburg, such as the participation format “Future Workshop Bahnpark”, the dialogue format “Table of Generations” and a Europe Day for young people on the subject of travelling with Interrail.

The focus of the new project is the district of Augsburg-Hochfeld, officially “Planning Area IX”, which is dominated by an industrial wasteland of the railway operating area. In the centre lies the Augsburg Railway Park, which aims to establish itself as a place of learning for European cultural and technical history with its collection of locomotives.

The idea behind the project is to bring life and culture to the district. Cultural events such as concerts, readings and exhibitions are to take place, and a place to come together is to be created.

In the coming months, various activities are now to take place with the Kultainers. “The Bahnpark is to be developed into a cultural quarter in the Hochfeld district. We want to offer the residents a place to meet and exchange ideas,” says Markus Hehl, managing director of the Bahnpark. “This will enable us, together with the association dieKunstBauStelle, to provide impetus and realise ideas as a sponsor and actor for cultural life in the urban area,” Hehl continues.

At this new location, the association can act as a coordinator, mediator and actor to bundle the cooperation and participation of different actors. “There is magic in every beginning. This can be experienced here in the Bahnpark. What is still perceived as an abandoned industrial wasteland can soon become a new attractive quarter in Augsburg, with the Bahnpark at its centre,” emphasises Wolfgang Hauck, chairman of the dieKunstBauStelle association.

The project started on 2 March 2023 with the arrival of the Kultainer. The cultural association dieKunstBauStelle has been active internationally as a non-profit organisation since 2014. With the project “Planungsraum IX”, dieKunstBauStelle is sending a clear signal for the promotion of culture and networking in the Augsburg-Hochfeld district. The support of the Fonds Soziokultur shows that the work of the association is valued and receives nationwide recognition. Three publications of federal funding have just appeared in which five of the association’s projects are presented as prime examples.

ArtNoStop – Partner meeting in the Netherlands

Partner meeting in the Netherlands

From December 8 to 10, 2022, the third transnational meeting of the project Art No Stop 2020-1-ES01-KA227-ADU-095851, co-funded by the Erasmus+ program, took place.

In this project, we, dieKunstBauStelle, participate as a German partner and cooperate with the following organizations:

  • Spain: Fundación Escuela de Solidaridad (project management).
  • Italy: Cooperativa Sociale Ten Rock
  • Germany: dieKunstBauStelle
  • Netherlands: Changes & Chances

In this meeting, we were able to finalize our manual for the collaboration of social institutions with artists*. For this purpose, we are preparing video courses as part of the program and have created a website where we report on more than 100 examples of different forms of collaboration.

Currently, we are working on an online course on the production of artistic events. This will be available free of charge for the education and training of professionals and volunteers in the respective communities, and as a platform for the exchange of experiences and the formation of networks.

The meeting took place in the small village of Herpt near s’Hertogenbosch. There, we were able to hold our meeting in the wonderful conference center “De Nieuwe Schuur” (the new barn) of Francine Houben. It impressed us because one of the themes of our project is how architecture can support and promote socio-cultural work and activities.

Francine Houben, who became world-famous for her library buildings in Delft, was our charming hostess, and her works were an inspiration. Her husband, Hans Anderson, was equally inspiring to us, as his expertise is in organizational consulting, which he has done for decades for public institutions.

In the end, Ankie was able to show us around ‘s-Hertogenbosch, where she has built and realized her theater work for over thirty years. She took care of the preparation and organization of this wonderful meeting with Ed, both from the organization Changes & Chances.

A. Meeting that will be remembered by all of us for a long time, and for all it was clear: we will be back

Time Travel Europe – Discover Europe

Time Travel Europe – Discover Europe


Saturday, December 3, Augsburg Railway Park

Logo Bahnpark Augsburg

Augsburg: Discovering Europe by train is a symbol of freedom in the past as it is today. The association dieKunstBauStelle and the Bahnpark Augsburg invite you on Saturday to an encounter in the European Year of Youth 2022.

Many know Interrail as a symbol of the first experience of freedom of travel and spontaneous being on the road. It is a challenge to see how little one can get by in order to travel through Europe for weeks or months. The experiences, encounters, and lessons learned continue to have an impact well into old age, and for many young people, Interrail is the dream of starting out on their own. For 50 years, Interrail has been the symbol of a roller coaster ride in life.

Now 40 people from Augsburg are invited to report themselves or to hear about other experiences. There will be insider tips, you will hear about dramas, tragedies and moments of happiness, and the endless feeling of freedom. An offer for young adults and seniors.

On Saturday, December 3, the European Journey begins at 2:00 pm with workshops and a “living library”.

In the evening there is an Open Stage, which ends with a raffle.

The prizes speak for themselves:

  • 6 x Interrail passes
  • 4 x rides on the historic steam locomotive
  • 10 x shopping vouchers for Augsburg.

It is definitely worth it.

The number of participants is limited to 40. Therefore, registration is required:


The meeting is financed by the European Union within the framework of “European Year of Youth 2022”. The project “Time Travel Europe” is supported by Interrail and Bahnpark Augsburg.

EXHIBITION *** Extended until October 9 ***


A reminder – September 19, 1937 – City of Youth
by Wolfgang Hauck

Duration of the exhibition: September 16 to October 9, 2022
In the container at the Infanterieplatz, Landsberg am Lech

Opening hours daily, but depending on weather and availability. Usually between 11 am to 6 pm and by appointment.

Admission free

Information and documents:


“… A brilliant idea to bring history to the people and not wait until they go to the museum.”
“I’ve lived in Landsberg for 20 years and didn’t know all this, thank you!”
“My grandpa had kept a diary about it with two friends. I was allowed to look at it once when I was 17, for a technical paper. But I had to promise not to mention any names and not to pass it on to anyone.”
“No, I haven’t heard anything yet. Very important to show something like that in the middle of the city!”
“… Frightening how the youth was seduced and how targeted the propaganda was.”
“… I still knew Anton Posset from school lessons. It was not always easy to get along with him, but without his commitment one would not know or have available all this today. With the street names, the city should also discuss whether not to name a street after him? …”
“Decentralized history work – convincingly solved, encourages further reading and reaches many who would otherwise never go to a museum, certainly not on this topic.”
“Great, I was here yesterday and again today to show it to my friends. I am glad to hear that there will be an English and digital version. I will share it!”.


In 1937, the “Adolf Hitler Confession March” led thousands of Hitler Youth youth from all over Germany first to the Reich Party Congress of the NSDAP in Nuremberg to pledge allegiance to the Führer.

Afterward, about 1800 boys of the Hitler Youth marched on to Landsberg am Lech. At the first final rally on September 19, 1937, on the main square, Landsberg am Lech was named “City of Youth” by the Reich Youth Leader, thus expanding its status as a “place of pilgrimage for National Socialism.”

For the first time in 1980/81, a student project drew attention to this history. In 1993, after private research, a series of essays on it was published. Nevertheless, after 85 years, this chapter of the city’s history has been pushed out of the collective memory.

The exhibition addresses this memory gap with an artistic installation based on the research of 1993 and exemplarily outlines the current state of historical awareness.

FILM: Das Arturo-Projekt

The Arturo Project: Premiere at FSFF

Landsberg am Lech, August 16, 2022

“Arturo Ui” project premieres at the Five Lakes Film Festival in Gauting on Aug. 27

Landsberg documentary “The Arturo Project” premieres at FSFF.

The collaboration of three Landsberg Ellinor Holland Award winners results in a unique film project.

“Revue, circus, drama, parable, and thriller in equal measure. Outstanding level” wrote the Süddeutsche Zeitung about the play, which was seen in Landsberg am Lech in August 2019. The Stelzer and the Theater Wasserburg cooperated for this production with a traveling circus and a band. In this worldwide unique symbiosis, Uwe Bertram staged Brecht’s parable of the “Aufhaltsamen Aufstieg des Arturo Ui” on the Waitzinger Wiese as an impressive crossover. The synergy between the genres – theater, circus, acrobatics, and stilt theater – made possible a spectacle with an impressive dynamic.


The audience and press were enthusiastic, as was Kurt Tykwer of Filmforum Landsberg. “The fact that such a constellation was possible in Landsberg in the Brecht Year 2019 electrified me so much that the idea of capturing the play on film wouldn’t let me go,” Tykwer said in conversation. After three years of production, his idea became a 90-minute documentary. “The documentary ‘The Arturo Project’ is a cinematic milestone, a pearl,” Tykwer said of the film.

But this “pearl” also involved the collaboration of three well-known Landsberg cultural figures, all three winners of the Ellinor Holland Art Prize: Wolfgang Hauck, director of the theater “Die Stelzer” and the association “dieKunstBauStelle”, as producer, filmmaker Robert Fischer as responsible for camera, editing, writing and directing, and Kurt Tykwer from Filmforum Landsberg as idea provider and advisor.


Five years passed from the premiere of the play in Wasserburg in 2017 to the finished film, which Robert Fischer bundled in an entertaining and exciting way. Through his masterful dialogue in the editing, he succeeds in drawing the work on Brecht’s parable from the idea development of Uwe Bertram to the first rehearsals with the ensemble and the stilts training to the glorious premiere as an intimate chronicle of a process of change. “This group of very diverse creative people developed a theatrical event together that, in an unexpected way, ended up changing each of them forever,” Fischer said. “To witness and capture this change was a great privilege for me,” said the longtime curator of the Munich Film Festival.

Producer Wolfgang Hauck (dieKunstBauStelle) shed light on another facet of the film. “The individual look behind the scenes opens up the reference to the current situation from different aspects. This makes it clear that it is not only a parable of the political situation of the 30s and 40s, but also of our own political reality,” he explains in conversation. His stilts partner Peter Pruchniewitz trained and instructed the actors, who perform on stilts in the play. Only Arturo Ui remains on the ground, a parable in which perspective is on the one hand a political expression, but also an artistic means of expression.

Those who have seen the play in Landsberg know what is being talked about. The story is well known: Arturo Ui wants to get to the top. At any cost. Bribery, corruption, murder, fraud, whatever the means. Taking advantage of an economic crisis, with oratory and agitation, Arturo Ui succeeds in a frighteningly easy political rise. The actors, artists and musicians, many of whom met for the first time for this project, were united by the conviction that Brecht’s cautionary parable about the mechanisms of fascism and the seizure of power by a dictator is unfortunately as relevant today as it was at the time of its creation.

The quality and topicality of the film also convinced sponsors such as TILL (Förderverein Stadttheater), the Rotary Club Ammersee, the Heidehof Foundation, and the Sparkassenstiftung Landsberg. Sabine März-Lerch from the “Förderverein Stadttheater” considered the collaboration of these various actors and artists to be so significant that “this documentary absolutely had to be made possible. What was created there should also be accessible to a wider audience,” she says, explaining the funding approval. This is now also happening as part of the Five Lakes Film Festival (FSFF).

The film will be shown at the festival as a world premiere on August 27 at Breitwandkino Gauting and on September 4 as a matinee at Breitwandkino Starnberg. At Filmforum Landsberg, “The Arturo Project” will be shown on September 19. There will be film discussions with the participants at each screening.

Emily – on internship to Spain

Internship abroad in Granada, Spain at the Fundacion Escuela de Solidaridad

I am Emily and I am in the 11th grade at the FOS Landsberg in the branch design. As you know, the first year at this school is characterized by an alternation of weeks between school and internship. During my search for an internship, I came across Wolfgang Hauck and his association, dieKunstBauStelle, and was impressed by the diversity of the work they do there.

so I introduced myself there and luckily I was able to start an internship there. My work is very diverse, I was very well received and asked to participate in many projects, including the Erasmus project in Granada. So I had the chance to travel to Spain with Wolfgang Hauck and some girls of the Stelzer from Landsberg am Lech and to participate in the project “Festival Krearte”.

We stayed at the Fundacion Escuela de Solidaridad, an organization that takes in children, young people, and families from poor backgrounds and offers them a place to stay, something to eat and much more. The founder of this organization is Ignacio Pereda Perez and he has been running the organization for a long time together with his wife Dora Fanelli.

Respect for everyone you meet is a priority there and it is a safe space for everyone, no matter where you come from or what you look like. We arrived there, were very, very warmly welcomed, quickly made new acquaintances and made new friends. Our plan was to create “something out of nothing” with the people there and above all to work together as a team. The goal of the festival is to bring together different people and different cultures.

At the end of this week, so on Sunday 29.05.2022, the festival started and we moved with a colorful procession through Granada. But now back to the beginning. We flew on Monday the 23.05.2022 from the airport in Memmingen and went to Spain to work on some things and to provide as much support as possible. Also from Thursday to Saturday there were several workshops to prepare some things and also the people for the parade on Sunday.

I prepared with Laura, a Dutch artist who also came with us to Spain, the workshop “Making costumes out of paper”. This was from Thursday to Saturday a good three hours each at what felt like 38″ in the shade.

As it says from the name of this course, we made the costumes out of paper.  We made skirts out of old newspapers or turned wallpaper into hats.

Our motto was “Making something out of nothing”. In the workshop, we shared our methods and experiences of artistic work with refugees and migrant women with the Fundacion Escuela de Solidaridad.

They took place on the premises of the FES and a school near Granada. Here, too, we attached great importance to a practical and action-oriented approach with enough space for reflection and exchange. We had the support of volunteers from all over the world which helped us a lot to finish all pending tasks in time.

The focus of my work was mainly on gender-sensitive intercultural work. This means that during this week we intensively dealt with how we can specifically work with women with a migration background. Here, our stay in the community gave us the opportunity to enter into a direct exchange with the target group and to get to know the perspective of the migrant women living there.

We focused a lot on the basics of gender-sensitive work, creating easier access to projects and programs for migrant women, and empowering of migrant women through artistic inventions. Through solid cooperation with a wide variety of people, we were able to solve all tasks almost without any problems and were able to put together a beautiful procession.

All participants enjoyed the project very much and everyone was very happy, new friendships were made and we got to know each other better day by day.

All in all, I am very, very grateful that I was able to have this experience and would do it again at any time.

Klavier Total in Fuchstal

Klavier Total in Fuchstal und Lesung Richard Rost

Sonntag, 19. Juni 2022 ab 14:00 bis 18:00 Uhr

Location: Kultainer Fuchstalhalle, Freybergstraße 34, Fuchstal

On Sunday, 14 June at 14:00 the stage is set for pianists, followed at 19:00 by a reading by Richard Rost.

Sunday starts with music. The project “Play Me, I’m Yours” by the British artist Play Me, I’m Yours Luke Jerram is the model for the event “Klavier total”! The Bürgerforum Buntes Fuchstal and the association dieKunstBauStelle transform the Kultainer site into a music stage. To do this, they will simply place a piano in front of the Fuchstal. This is an invitation to all pianists to take up the keys and play.

From “Fuchs du hast die Gans gestohlen”, boogie-woogie to the Moonlight Sonata, everything is possible. The fun of music is in the foreground and this should be transferred to everyone. If everyone brings a drink and a snack, everything is together to make this Sunday an unforgettable experience.


At 19:00 there will be a reading by Richard Rost from his book “Das Ketzerdorf – In Ketten”. He is coming back from Italy especially to his birthplace Leeder and will talk about the book, the history and his research. Then it’s back to the year 1577. In case of bad weather, the reading will take place in the youth meeting room.

Sponsored by the Fonds Soziokultur.

Admission is free.
