The land of Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum is in a state urban transformation. Plans for development are on the horizon. Both municipal authorities and private investors have been drawing up ideas for this wasteland, which was once the boundary between East and West Berlin. At our headquarters, we will host a discussion, which looks at the subversive roles artists can play in urban development, with a focus on site-specific strategies. The talk will be led by 3 experts in their field, Pelin Tan, Andrej Holm, and Matteo Pasquinelli. Stepping beyond a discussion purely on urban theory, the talk is intended to develop strategies for artistic practices in areas of urban renewal which are both critical and self-cognizant. The talk will look at actual approaches to art making as well as the residual affects of being an active artist-participant in this landscape.
