Within the vast empty spaces of the Haus der Statistik on 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. 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.
Artistic directors: Harry Sachs, Matthias Einhoff, Philip Horst (ZK/U—Center for Art and Urbanistics); Curator: Tirdad Zolghadr (KW Institute for Contemporary Art), Project participants: Economic Space Agency (ECSA), Hiveeyes, KUNSTrePUBLIK, Labor k3000, Moabees, openBerlin, Penny Rafferty and Nascent, raumlaborberlin with Bernadette La Hengst, and others
Statista is a collaboration between ZK/U—Center for Art and Urbanistics and KW Institute for Contemporary Art, and enjoys the generous support of the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
