There’s a submarine in the middle of Leipzig. It’s not only the architecture of the former Bowlingtreff in the heart of the city that evokes such a vessel. In terms of relevance, the building also gradually sank from view over the years. It was built as an example of postmodern architecture in the late 1980s, behind the authorities’ back, as it were, and then tolerated. A piece of aesthetic resistance in the city of the “peaceful revolution”, it became a meeting point for athletic activity with a Western flair. Builders and volunteers speak and take us back to the palace of the people built by Leipzigers for Leipzigers. Let’s hope that this submarine will be allowed to resurface one day.
