With our work Dung Dung (decomposition), we reflect on the social current of utopians, nerds and sectarians that emerged at the end of the 19th century, when settlements, rural communities and colonies have started to be established. Motivated by rejection of capitalism and the longing for a new world, a multitude of different settlements also arose around Berlin such as Gildenhall, Wolterdorf, Marienhöhe, Eden, Motzener See, Tiefensee or Bornim. Common to all is the attempt to combine existential, cooperative and ideal values, which mostly failed due to the harsh reality. We are interested in the substances / wastes left over from these failed models of existence, abandoned to the formless and without need for authority – decay in the half-light. In the gaps between the past and future of these movements, we look for slumbering remains that are worth illuminating.
