The DEAUQUMENTHA will take place for the first time in Kassel's Nordstadt from 3 - 9 June 2020. The participating artists will mainly be asking questions: Will the earth's ecosystem be able to withstand capitalism for much longer? Should we still have children in this world? And are electric motors part of the solution or the problem? The inhabitants of Nordstadt can also become active themselves and become part of the exhibition. In Gottschalkstraße and the Westring, large quantities of homemade crayon will be made available to turn the asphalt into a talking street and to start a visual dialogue with the passers-by  despite the required minimum distance. A selection of the daily paintings will also be shown online at Also in Gottschalkstraße is a wall with posters that recalls forgotten women, most of whom lived in the Nordstadt. They were resistant personalities in very different ways. At Holländischer Platz the viewers are invited to enter into an inner dialogue with the graffiti in the underpass. And those who are surprised that quite unexpected noises from shop windows of the quarter coming to their ears are right in the middle of the experimental sound collages, which playfully and acoustically represent the protest motif.
