Thesaurós | Gabriel (Gabriel)

Gabriel is a libertine, dancer and jester. He was born in Holland in the late 1960s. After an injury ruined his career as a dancer, he dedicated himself to following the traces of his own person. He abandoned his alter ego and became an artist to whom, it must be said, the prophetic proclamation is not alien...

Join him on one of the most extraordinary journeys of the early 21st century.


Thesaurós | Elshan Ghasimi

Elshan Ghasimi is a Persian musician and performance artist. She is one of the most well-known soloists of her generation; her instrument is the tar, a long-necked lute.

She was, at 17, the youngest member of the Iranian National Orchestra and studied the Persian and the so- called Caucasian tar under various masters in Tehran and Baku (Mohammad-Reza Lotfi, Dariush Talai and Hossein Alizadeh, amongst others).


Bublitz & Thesaurós

Bublitz is an independent artist and curators network and a non-profit company. Thesaurós (gr: for treasure house) is a platform within the network, in which at the time, alongside Elshan Ghasimi, three other artists and the El Arbi Bouqdib archive are organized.

Bublitz stands for a holistic and novel form of artistic-curatorial work. In the independent cultural NGO artistically and non-artistically active persons of different branches work together. Since 2011, a combination of cultural production site, curatorial office, gallery, concert organizer and workshop has been created along this path at the interface between art and cultural history.


A statement about the Mnemosyne project

"In Europe, history and a vision of the future are very closely linked. Europe‘s promise revolves around two decisive transformations:

1. From war to peace – from European history we learn that erstwhile mortal enemies become peacefully coexisting and closely cooperating neighbours.
2. From coercion to freedom – from European history we learn that dictatorships can become democracies.

In order to safeguard these values, the EU‘s indifferent phase must be followed by a phase of revival, emotion, renewal and engagement. The project Mnemosyne. In Search of the European Identity is heading in precisely this direction. We therefore support it wholeheartedly."

Prof. Dr. Aleida Assmann & Prof. Dr. Em. Jan Assmann


Exhibition Cycle | Elie's Miniatures

At the beginning of 2018, a new exhibition cycle was launched: Elies Miniatures embarks on a search for the life and work of Moroccan mathematician and magician El Arbi Bouqdib, who passed away in 2016.

Based on the work of classical Persian musician Elshan Ghasimi, different artistic genres are brought together and linked. An artistic synthesis created on many stages and stations gives birth to itself.

Bouqdib's estate has been part of Bublitz Thesaurós since 2017 as the El Arbi Bouqdib Archive (EBA).

Exhibition Cycle | Mnemosyne

Mnemosyne. In Search of the European Identity is a long term, pan-European and civic project. It offers a new way to consider exhibitions, memory policy and culture at a time of the greatest threats since the Second World War.

Mnemosyne derives its name from the Greek goddess of memory, mother of the nine muses. The word memory also stems from her name.


Thesaurós | El Arbi Bouqdib Archive

When El Arbi Bouqdib died in March 2016 in Bremen, he left boundless and yet to be measured secrets behind.

In order to manage and structure his estate, the El Arbi Bouqdib Archive was founded in 2017. As part of Bublitz Thesaurós, its concern is to report on the life and work of Bouqdib.

Come with us into the past of this forgotten mathematician, magician and poet.
