Walk: Von Albert bis Victoria – oder: Kann man Finanzialisierung sehen?Sunday, 16 October 2022, 14:00 – 18:00
Organized by: neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst
An urban walk with Ines Schaber and Kathrin Wildner
Meeting point: Leopoldplatz – Table tennis tables located behind the New Nazareth Church
X Properties examines the impact of financial capital on the social and cultural production of the city. Traces of an urban transformation in the course of financialization, i.e. the increasing presence and significance of financial capital in the real estate market, are investigated.
In this walk, urban ethnologist Kathrin Wildner and artist Ines Schaber survey a neighborhood in Wedding in which five apartment buildings are located that belong to Albert Immo Properties. The company is associated with Victoria Immo Properties V – the owner of Oranienstraße 25, where the nGbK is located since 1992. Kathrin Wildner and Ines Schaber will observe, collect stories, and discuss in two urban walks the issue of whether financialization is to be seen and what other signs of history, change, and resistance we can perceive through our examination of space.
The group will be accompanied by Christoph Casper, who has investigated the entanglements and planning of the two special funds Albert Immo Properties and Victoria Immo Properties with inquiries to Berlin authorities, Naomi Hennig, member of the project group Im Dissens? Neighborhood, Gentrification and Artistic Engagement in Oranienstraße (2019) and Julian Zwicker, resident and co-founder of the house group AmMa 65 and the initiative Häuser Bewegen.
