Hellersdorf: station urbaner kulturenThursday, 01 February 2018 — Tuesday, 31 December 2019
Organized by: neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst
Members of the nGbK have been running the station urbaner kulturen on a housing estate in Berlin-Hellersdorf since 2014. It is a discursive exhibition and programme space and a workplace for collaborations between artists and residents. With this long-term presence on the outskirts of the city, the nGbK takes responsibility for the development of new forms of artistic practice. The station initiates interventionistic processes, strengthens social structures and reflects on the future of a district through cultural and artistic engagement.
Some of the work takes place on open green land next to Cottbusser Platz Underground Station. This land is exemplary for the many open spaces in the city which were once appropriated by communities as public and free places for culture and leisure, but are now threatened by imminent building activity.
