Zentrale Randlagen

Workshop, Berlin-Mitte, April 17 – Juli 17 2007

Based the topics dealt with in Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum students develop projects, artistic interpretations and interventions on the undeveloped sections of the former military zone in Kreuzberg and Mitte.
Over the course of three tasks, the students eventually create a sitespecific project.
In the first task 'Pfadfinderei' (engl.: Scouting) the students are asked to make discoveries and to make these accessible to others. They are asked to mark a path and - similar to jogging paths - determine stations, where instructions are given, which will enable the user to experience the space in a specific way.
In the student's  second task 'Forschungsauftrag' (engl.: research contract) each student is responsible for  a drawers of a card cabinet. There for the students are asked to approach the area like a researcher would. This includes collecting information from third parties on an aspect of interest and prepare it for the drawer. Third parties may be institution (archives, clubs, offices, administrations), private enterprises with infrastructural functions (Vattenfall, Wall, Bwb, real estate companies, lawyers, etc.), direct stakeholders (residents, owners, etc.) or other scientists (botanists, geologists, archeologists, etc.). The collected information is structured and stored in a way that others are able to understand the material.
Finally based on the experience and knowledge from the first two tasks the students developed a site-specific piece.
