Berlin, Berlin… My city is changing

The restored installation “Funeral of Affordable Rents” by the artist collective Rocco and his brothers can be found in the space Freiraum. It was first set up by the artist collective on a street corner in Kreuzberg in 2016 to draw attention to the exploding rents in the city.

Berlin is no longer what it used to be. Berliners see the blatant changes in their city: more new buildings, more people, more up-scale offerings. In contrast, inexpensive studios, cultural open spaces and neighbourhood cultures seem to be disappearing altogether. This has harsh consequences for people who depend on affordable housing. Berliners are losing their flats and with them their familiar neighbourhood surroundings. Many are demonstrating for fair rents and against displacement.

Visual anthropologist, artist and filmmaker Linda Paganelli explains in her guided tour how art can be linked to activism. She also tells about resistances and interweavings of the city with personal stories.

The guided tour accompanies the Open Space project “We’re staying! Gentrification and resistance in Berlin”. The artistic works can be seen in the room “Interconnection” of the exhibition BERLIN GLOBAL.

The guided tour will be held in English.
