Leo Baeck Salon Nr.9 the fine art issue

Near the Westhafen port in Berlin, the moving and storage company, Tolmien Umzüge, shuffles its massive inventory of shipping containers in and out of warehouses and lots controlled by computers. The tidy grounds and the bright yellow shipping containers bring a cheerful aspect to the industrial surroundings, but the focus of the operation is squarely on logistics and not the multitude of life histories contained in the shipping containers.

The students in Schneiders class at the Berlin University of the Arts who tackled that challenge responded with works that ranged from live recreations of banquet tableaus from photographs in LBI collections to abstract sculptural installations.
