Organized by: neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst
The third of three event clusters
SOFT SOIL is a discursive format with a mobile platform returning to the nGbK in three ›blocks‹ of events, which take place in-between exhibitions. SOFT SOIL describes the ambivalence of the sandy ground Berlin is built on: both the attrition of urban structures through privatisation and speculation, and the malleability of urban space through everyday practices and resistance. The format addresses colonial continuities, and questions relating to the neoliberal transformation of the city since 1990. Additionally, it critically examines the relationship between space and gender relations. Initiatives, researchers, artists and all interested are invited to enter into exchange through discussions, screenings and workshops — in the spirit of solidarity in practice. What ideals shape the production of so-called public space, and what might »Stadt für alle« (»city for all«) mean?
