“The most radical revolutionary will become a conservative the day after the revolution.“
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) and Alexandra Spiegel (Berlin)

The annual A trans theme Neo City means an openness to new, visionary aspects of the city. What is the new, and how do we recognize something as new?
Paradoxically, we also regard the neo as not new. In conjunction with ancillary concepts, the term neo refers to something that recurs, that is repeated or revived (i.e. Neo-Baroque).
In this exhibition series, this antagonism will be interrogated, investigated, and redefined by the invited protagonists.

The annual theme A Private City is designed to focus with greater precision on the idea of the public and private. These terms are mutually interdependent, yet their margins remain perpetually indistinct, never becoming fixed or static.
All of us are aware of the transformations affecting cities, including the loss of urbanity and tendencies toward globalization. The character of public space is undergoing constant change, while private realms are becoming more differentiated spatially.
In times past, the city air offered a sense of freedom, and it continues to exercise a strong attractive force. Increasingly, spaces of autonomous action in the spirit of Hannah Arendt’s “vita active,” temporary spaces of possibility and transitional spaces are disappearing, are being deprived of their significance within municipal politics and culture. The reappropriation of such forms of action, of community spirit in opposition to the expansion of the economy within public space and the dominance of mass society resembles an act of liberation.
In this series of exhibitions, invited protagonists will interrogate, fathom, and redefine the relationship between public and private.

The ninth annual program A Recipro-City deals with the theme of reciprocity. Recprocity is a fundamental principle of human activity, and so implicit in life to investigate the space which environs us. The protagonist are professionals in that field of artistic engagement and investigatation in new formats of exchange and dealing through approach, differentation, inclusion and specific influence.
