In her famous essay Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction, Ursula K. Le Guin reflects on the narratives of collecting – by means of a container, such as a carrier bag, in which the individual elements lie non-hierarchically next to, above, and below one another, the connections are loose, and the possibilities for linking are manifold – like constellations that form, dissolve, and come together anew.

While the ZK/U is under construction, we ask about the coherence of things. What happens in the in-between, when no stone is left unturned. The Urban Stage is a smaller version of the roof terrace that will grace the ZK/U at the end of the renovation work. A few meters closer to the Cosmos, here we dare to look up at the starry sky and contemplate lyrical constellations.
