walking (art) in times of … #1

In this series of contributions we present projects that are looking for ways to create (participatory) artistic walks in times of lockdown and physical distancing.


The performance collective ANONYME ANWOHNENDE proposes in the project “Berlin sucht den Superhost!” individual walks with interactive set-maps. The map leads through the contrasting realities of Berlin-Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. On the one hand, the city is a tourist backdrop marketed by Airbnb, the world’s largest holiday apartment broker. On the other hand, there are tenants’ initiatives, left-wing projects and small businesses threatened by displacement or even eviction.
