100 Years Com­mu­nist Par­ty Switzerland

Ree­nact­ment

Neu­markt dra­ma­tur­ge Niko­lai Prawd­zic and co-direc­tor Hayat Erdoğan found out that 100 years ago, on March 5, 1921, the Com­mu­nist Par­ty of Switz­er­land was foun­ded at Neu­markt 5. To this end, they pro­gram­med “Trai­ning for the Future” on March 6 and 7, 2021, whe­re they addres­sed ques­ti­ons about collec­ti­ves, collec­ti­vi­ty and collec­ti­viz­a­ti­on. They also invi­ted the Neu­markt staff to take a site-spe­ci­fic ree­nact­ment pho­to. With this ree­nact­ment, the Neu­markt also congra­tu­la­tes Rosa Luxem­burg, who would have tur­ned 150 on March 5, 2021.

Hail to inter­pla­ne­ta­ry solidarity!
