Cars through empty streets are snaking,
Swerve past potholes, honking, braking
Exhaust fumes clean-air-infecting,
Chronic, sooty scent-ejecting
Tongue caressed by the inhaled
Looks in vain for sweetness quailed
Houses which grow grey and greyer
Heaven answers watcher’s prayer
Alleys channel gusty air
Harshly pricking skin and hair
Clouded joys lurk in this quarter
Hinting at new roads to charter
- sixth sense.
Here, where workers once spent the night, where vacancy is still present, where rubbish in the streets and a rough tone of voice sometimes cause displeasure, we want to embark on a journey of pleasure. For as much as the image of the quarter seems tarnished to the outside world, there is also a stubborn (!) form of enjoyment hidden in it.
By bringing together a wide variety of creative people, we promote a dialogue between theory and praxis right in the urban district Sonnenberg - a district, wich is worth discovering. Above all, we strive to rethink the seemingly negative and encourage all of Chemnitz* residents to indulge in sensual pleasure.
To this end, the association invites two artists* into the district to deal in three stages with one of the six senses that enable us to feel pleasure.
No matter whether it's a culinary creation, an intervention, a performance, an installation or tour - we intend to make the Sonnenberg visible and palpable with all senses.
