August – September
Interventions in urban space and accompanying events
Much of what Berlin once stood for is under threat or has already vanished, surviving only in souvenir shops. Which values remain? Which urban spaces should be exempted from commercialization? The works by Florine Schüschke, Sasha Amaya, Juli Sikorska, Clara Brinkmann and Philine Puffer address the ongoing shifts in value taking place in the city, as interventions render visible real-estate speculation and the impact of climate change. The project extends along the U8 underground line, integrating the stations, surrounding biotopes, and the TV screens inside the trains themselves.
