KUBUS @ Rundlauf

The this year's festival RUNDLAUF BOCHUM was canceled short term yesterday, respectively postponed to Whitsun.

Unfortunately the team of RUNDLAUF didn't succeed in getting the necessary approvals in due time, so that the two main performance spaces Alumiumfabrik at the Robertstraße and Hochbunker at the Haldenstraße can't be used.

KUBUS was tailored by us especially to one of the halls of the Aluminiumfabrik. We miss the room now.

An alternative contaminated, dirty, given up factory building in the Speckschweiz isn't available.

The Team of RUNDLAUF would like to let the festival take place in changed form as a kind of construction festival from May 1st to 4th, because of the enormous efforts already done.

This kind of form is, however, unsuitable for KUBUS - therefore we have canceled the project KUBUS.

The classical festival Rundlauf Bochum was postponed simultaneously to the 6th and 9th June (Whitsun).

Whether a place for KUBUS then will be available is at present still open.


Built of white exhibition walls of the Kunstmuseum (art museum) Bochum, KUBUS is an exhibition room in a former storage of the defunct aluminium foundry in Bochum Hamme.

Pictures brought by anybody should here fill the walls of the KUBUS.

The works will be placed by the lenders themselves during the festival from the 1st to the 4th of May as salon hang. Exhibits will be accepted until the room will be full.

After the activation of art places and their potential in Bochum for an exhibition in the artmuseum of Bochum and the temporary transfer of the table of the FKT into the museum for food and open conversation, it seems a logical consequence to FLUR'14, to bring the place already institutionalised into the OFF-room.
