As part of the competition Art in the Underground 2020/21: as above, so below held by nGbK, five artists were selected to address questions about the future of the city as an urban and social body. Sasha Amaya, Clara Brinkmann, Philine Puffer, Florine Schüschke and Juli Sikorska realized works that critically yet humorously deal with social biotopes and the transformation of urban living spaces. Along the Berlin subway network, the artistic interventions dealt with new living spaces, real estate speculation, the concept of home, and the increasing heating of our cities. The publication documents and contextualizes the artists’ digital and analog interventions.
