Adolf Reichwein

“The Dance of Resistance” – Adolf Reichwein, a biography in movement (1898-∞)

Exhibition by Roman KROKE (work in process)

In 2014, the Adolf Reichwein Association entrusted Kroke with creating an exhibition reflecting upon the biography of the German pedagogue and resistance fighter Adolf Reichwein (1898-1944). The exhibition will display an artistic approach including a series of illustrations. Central metaphors of Kroke’s artwork will have their origins in the universe of dance and artistry, such as the concept of flexibility & resistance on the physical as well as the spiritual level.

On the basis of this artwork Kroke has elaborated an interdisciplinary workshop concept which had its “première” in cooperation with the State School for Ballet and Artistry Berlin (click on “Workshops” below for a photo gallery). The project has been sponsored by: German Resistance Memorial Centre, Landeszentrale für politische Bildungsarbeit Berlin, Adolf-Reichwein-Verein e. V., Bibliothek für Bildungsgeschichtliche Forschung, friends’ associations of the State School for Ballet and Artistry Berlin, Skulpturengießerei Knaak, private sponsors.
