Germany version of this project. A Thingplatz or Thingstaette was a specially built architectural theatre, that was used by the National Socialist Regime in Germany for propaganda purposes. This project is part of a larger group project curated by Katharina Bosse in Germany. Artists were invited to engage these spaces with their art work and ask, what should happen with these often derelict structures? Some are used but their history is not acknowledged (such as in Berlin, where it is the Waldbuehne), and others are derelict, unused and unmarked. The name Thingplatz was banned after 3 years in 1940, which is why many do not know this name. There are approximately 40-60 Thinplaetze in Germany today.

Other participating artists include: Erica Shires (USA); Thomas Wrede (Germany); Daniel Mirer (USA),Jev Roppel (Kasachstan); Abhijit Pal (India); Felix Nürnberger (Germany); Hubert Czerepok (Poland); Simon Schuster (Germany); Rebecca Budde de Cancino (Germany).

This project (2015, book 2020) consisted of placing a would be sightseeing binocular near the thingplatz of Herrchen, Borna and Berlin. Inside the binocular were historical Nazi era stereoscopic images of the nearby thingplatz. Passersby were asked if they knew about it or knew what it was. Passersby also took a short survey.

Most people did not know the word Thingplatz and did not know that the structure was there, or did not know that it was built by the Nazi party.
