“The most radical revolutionary will become a conservative the day after the revolution.“

(Hanna Arendt)

 

With our program for 2018, entitled A Radical City, A trans focuses with greater precision on radical forms of expression and appearance in social and spatial contexts. It is hoped that a return to the roots (Latin: radix), to the originary, to the experience of extremes, will contribute to an expansion of horizons and a transformation of existing orientations toward life.

What are the roots of radicality, and what do we mean by the “radical city”?

It has been a long time since radical urban utopias were widely discussed. Yet one often reads that urban residents have become radicalized, or that entire urban districts have developed into No Go Zones as a result of radical tendencies.

Generally speaking, radicality can be seen as a catalyst for change. And a retrospective view of such transformations can make radicalism appear inevitable, even conservative.

In this series, the invited protagonists will reflect upon and redefine certain historical and utopian topics. Interrogated in the process in ways that go beyond individual disciplines, and through a variety of artistic approaches and working methods, will be a range of stereotypes, dogmas, and assumptions.

A trans strives to offer a platform to researchers into consciousness and for a multiplicity of approaches to the investigation of experimental tendencies that incorporate contemporary urban practices and identities.

The aim of A trans is therefore to foster the “radical” reorganization of existing beliefs and concepts leading toward artistic-architectural approaches that transcends individual disciplinary boundaries.

 

The collaborateurs in 2018 A Radical City series will be: Birgit Kjærsgaard (DK), Concha Argüeso (Berlin | ES), Living Room Project Berlin V with Marian Wjnvoord (Berlin | NL), Mareike Lee (Berlin | CAN) und Tomoyuki Ueno (Berlin | JP), Yona Friedman (Paris | FR), Alexandra Spiegel (Berlin)

Book Launch

Sunday, June 27, 2018  // 4 PM

BOOK LAUNCH  of the 4th edition of the Living Room Project Berlin
Atelier: Langhansstrasse 118, 13086 Berlin

(Within the framework of the Open Studio weekend in Pankow and Weissensee)

 

The set-up of this 4th Living Room Project Berlin remains the same as the previous years: participants come to the studio of Wijnvoord, choose a painting, and take it home for three months. One photograph is taken when the work is chosen; and a second just before it is collected and returns from its new home. Images and texts are gathered in the book: Living Room Project Berlin 2017.

Alongside the book release a small exhibition of recent works by the artist will be on view.

NO (B)ORDERS is to be understood as a universal political outcry coming directly out of the project space art scene. It stands for an open worldview, the artistic recapturing of urban space, as well as the preservation of autonomy and diversity for project spaces and initiatives. Four internationally active project spaces and initiatives were selected through an open call for this exhibition, based on artworks that are clearly positioned against discrimination and repression, instead displaying ways forward toward communication and freedom. The group exhibition allows not only for an encounter with different forms of reflection and expression, but also offers a space for spontaneous art actions and further discussion.
