STATISTA Presentation Week
12–16 September 19

 
Opening: 11 September 19, 7 pm
Venue: Haus der Statistik, Karl-Marx-Allee 1, 10178 Berlin

 

The complete program of events will be available at www.allesandersplatz.berlin.

 

 

 

Within the vast empty spaces of the Haus der Statistik near Alexanderplatz, STATISTA is testing whether working in the spirit of the Commons is an option even within today’s context of city development. With the aid of ten distinct playing fields, STATISTA generates artistic prototypes for a civil society built on collective principles.
The results of these artistic working processes will be made publicly visible during the STATISTA Presentation Week from September 11–16, 2019: Including neighbourhood initiatives, a cryptocurrency reflecting the wellbeing of bees, a facade design built for ecological inclusivity, and an international conference. Temporary usage, in this case, does not lead to gentrification, but to a form of urban renewal that is to the benefit of all.
 
STATISTA is a collaboration between ZK/U – Center for Art and Urbanistics and KW Institute for Contemporary Art.
 
Artistic directors: Harry Sachs, Matthias Einhoff, Philip Horst (ZK/U – Center for Art and Urbanistics)
Curator: Tirdad Zolghadr (KW Institute for Contemporary Art)
