The case study »Stasisauna« addresses the ways history inscribes itself in the body. The setting and the title refer to the sauna in the basement of Leipzig's Stasi headquarters, which became Leipzig's first gay sauna after 1990. Now on the verge of demolition, traces of these two former uses overlap throughout the building. After 1990, the GDR and its ideological and bodily regimes were represented predominantly through the themes of the Stasi, of surveillance and totalitarianism. But bodies also eluded these machineries, releasing dissident desires and movements that were elucidated in the late GDR in works such as the early documentaries of Wolfgang H Scholz. The latter form the starting point of a week-long work process in the exhibition space by Elske Rosenfeld (*1974, Halle/Saale) and the artist Wolfgang H Scholz, who now lives in Mexico City and Munich. In the works of both artists, bodies and their movements frequently stand in for a still-missing language for understanding present or historical experiences. Here the working processes of two artists socialized in the GDR but of different generations encounter one another, perhaps influenced in different ways by the experience of different cultures and systems. An artistic, physical-performative exchange culminates in a presentation at the end of the workshop week.
