Research project: Im Dissens?
Neighborhood, Gentrification, and Artistic Engagement in the OranienstrasseTuesday, 01 January 2019 — Tuesday, 31 December 2019

Research project, Newspaper
Since 1992, the nGbK has rented premises in the Oranienstrasse in Kreuzberg—a street whose long-standing residents and small traders are increasingly at risk of being displaced. What role do the nGbK and other cultural institutions play in this neighborhood and how might they show solidarity with it?
The research group uses interviews, mappings, and open forums to trace common interests and narratives in the neighborhood and to mobilize institutional resources for local initiatives.
nGbK project group: Stefan Endewardt, Joerg Franzbecker, Anna Heilgemeir, Naomi Hennig, Ulrike Jordan, Dagmar Pelger
