– Info on Klapperfeld:
The former police prison Klapperfeld in the inner-city of Frankfurt am Main was erected in 1886 and throughout its 115 years of existence was exclusively used for the repression and oppression of people.
The initiative ‘Faites votre jeu!’, which was founded as a autonomous, self-organizing cultural and political initiative, moved into the former prison at the end of April 2009, opening the building to the general public with numerous events, projects and an exhibition gallery. The ‘working group history’ is part of the initiative and it dedicates its work to a critical political approach to the prison’s past.

The night of 31 October in all western lands is celebrated
as a night where the frontiers between the enforced reality
and our real desires are abolished.
This is a night against all kinds of normalities
where the frozen social roles derive.
The children become dangerous,
the poor come out in the streets,
the rich ones hide themselves terrified under their bed-covers,
lovers express their uncontrollable sexual passions out in public.
Night of the Dead is also a night of memory
for all those lost ones,
all those that left their lives
without succeeding to materialize their dreams,
who left their plans unfinished
and their desires unfulfilled.
Also, it is a long drunken wild late night celebration,
an awaken night for all those living imprisoned,
all these living dead buried in deluded needs
and fake desires.
This is a night of magic
where everything we were dreaming of for a long time
NOW we have to put into practice.
The days of our apathy and fear are over.
In the deep darkness you can hear a muffled howl:
THEY HAVE THE AUTHORITY, WE HAVE THE NIGHT!
