Poröse Stadt – Grenzgänge des Urbanen

Porous city - Thresholds in Urbanity

The exhibition Porous City: Thresholds in Urbanity brings together artistic and activist perspectives that negotiate the urban territory of Berlin as residential, social, and experiential space, making marginalized spaces visible alongside their stories, contradictions, and overlaps.

Address
Kunstraum Kreuzberg / Bethanien

Mariannenplatz 2 B 10997  Berlin


Porous City opens up a view of city life as a porous and precarious nexus of relationships that requires constant renegotiation.

The exhibition seeks to give visibility to (erased) boundary-drawings and power relations in urban space—as well as to the creative possibilities of reinterpreting and appropriating them.

Showing the part these power relations play within urban value-creation processes is the very act that reveals the entanglements and consolidations that follow from various regimes of marginalizing specific bodies and memories within those same spaces. This examination of the city thus becomes an examination of lived experience in urban space, of the social forms made possible or impossible by particular architectures, and of ‘residential society’ as a social architecture itself.
