The event takes place in the frame of the ELEVATE - festival for music, arts and political discourse (22-26 October 2015).

An empty retirement home in Augsburg has become the space of negotiation for claiming recognition of a cosmopolitan reality in our society. What was a keen idea to start off with has grown since and now appears beyond the walls of the building.

The Social Sculpture creates habitats: not only for 65 people, who are called asylum seekers by the government and were allocated to this integrated refugee´s accommodation. But also for guests in 16 individually styled hotel- and hostel-rooms. For interpersonal cooperation in open-access training workshops and interdisciplinary used studios. As a stage for interaction of artistic expressions. As an intercultural meeting point at the café/bar. As a cosmopolitically organised kitchen. And as a lobby for all kinds of travellers.

Learn from each other! Improvisation. Spontaneity. Creativity. Openness.
Change as a common chance.


Participation is free of charge!
