The Center for Political Beauty (Zentrum für politische Schönheit) is an assault team that establishes moral beauty, political poetry and human greatness while aiming to preserve humanitarianism. The group’s basic understanding is that the legacy of the Holocaust is rendered void by political apathy, the rejection of refugees and cowardice. It believes that Germany should not only learn from its history but also take action. For several years now, the Center has engaged in a parallel (more beautiful) German approach to foreign politics that uses humanity as a weapon. From Bosnia-Herzegovina and Aleppo straight to the mountains of Melilla, the group’s interventions demonstrate how art can be a fifth state power. The Center for Political Beauty engages in the most innovative forms of political performance art – an expanded approach to theatre: art must hurt, provoke and rise in revolt.
