about the project According to statistics, people flee the country, they move to urban areas and cities. But what about the village? Who remains in the village, with its special architectural and social structure? The exhibition focuses on the village with his feelings of inferiority, the neighborhood obligations, but also the freedom of not having to be a center.

Not wanting to be a metropolis holds the potential to remain as habitat for other alternative lifestyles. And the people in Langenthal going to the center of their city, they say: "We go into the village."
in project language Gemäss Statistik fliehen die Menschen das Land, sie ziehen in Agglomerationen und Städte. Aber was ist mit dem Dorf? Wer bleibt im Dorf mit seiner besonderen sozialen und architektonischen Struktur? Die Ausstellung thematisiert das Dorf mit seinen Minderwertigkeitsgefühlen, den nachbarschaftlichen Verpflichtungen, aber auch der Freiheit, kein Zentrum sein zu müssen.

Keine Metropole sein zu wollen birgt das Potenzial, als Biotop für alternative Lebensentwürfe anders zu bleiben. Und gehen die Menschen in Langenthal ins Zentrum ihrer Stadt, sagen sie: "Wir gehen ins Dorf."
