The synagogue in Stommeln, today a part of the City of Pulheim, is one of the few synagogues in Germany that were neither damaged during the pogroms of 1938 nor razed during the urban renewal surge that started in the 1970s. The “Synagoge Stommeln” project was founded in 1990 in order to do justice to the synagogue's significance, and to generate public awareness of this historic site. Each year, the Culture Department of the City of Pulheim asks one artist of acclaim to develop an artwork that interacts with this place – including its architecture, its history.

In July 2014, the exhibition series will continue with its next oeuvre, “Hauptstrasse 85 a” by Gregor Schneider. Schneider will be the first artist to involve the entire building in an architectonic approach. His intervention makes the original synagogue vanish, and thus inquires into the presence and absence of the religious sphere. Moreover, he assigns a proprietary address to this “lost place” which did not use to have a postal address.

Welcome note: Frank Keppeler, Mayor
