All architecture is political. - Michael Sorkin
Come and tremble with us! We would like to invite you to join us on a guided tour through the streets and places of Annenstraße. We will encounter stories and unpack relations of the street that scale from a crack in the wall, from biospheres thriving in the most unlikely places, to signs, stones, vitrines, and violences enacted on the material and immaterial worlds of life. We will be here and elsewhere, amidst the chaos of capitalism fostered by architecture, politics, and art.
The tour is developed and structured through the research and artistic work of students of the IZK - Institute for Contemporary Art, in the Design of Specialized Topics course Trembling Streets: Investigative Materialities in an Apocalyptic World, led by Philipp Sattler.
The tour takes place on Annenstraße and within the exhibiting space of Annenstrasse 53, in a collaboration between the IZK - Institute for Contemporary Art and Das Gesellschaftliche Ding. Kunst, Architektur und Öffentlichkeit.
