Reading: X Properties + Am Rand von EuropaCityThursday, 24 November 2022, 19:00
Organized by: neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst
Discussion and collective reading from two issues of the Berlin Journals—On the History and Present State of the City
with Alexis Hyman Wolff, Achim Lengerer and Yves Mettler
Location: Neue Nachbarschaft // Moabit, Beusselstraße 44,
On the Border of EuropaCity discusses the real estate venture that has emerged over the past decade to the north of Berlin’s central station: the huge urban development project on former Deutsche Bahn land is being realized by private investment companies in close partnership with the Berlin Senate and represents a neoliberalization of the city that erodes existing neighborhood structures. Like X Properties, the publication edited by Alexis Hyman Wolff, Achim Lengerer, and Yves Mettler aims to better understand and negotiate the social, economic, and cultural geographies of financialized urban development. The discussion will supplement the reading of fragments from both books and link their content with personal experiences, ideas, and practices for a city for all. The event begins with the screening of some of the videos produced for X Properties by knowbotiq, Z vier Doppel X: Contact. Jane (Remote).
