1 KM2 BERLIN - DIE TRAGÖDIE DER OFFENEN STADT , ACT I: WE ARE SORRY!
2020 radialsystem Berlin
With the trilogy „1 km2 Berlin – Die Tragödie der offenen Stadt“, the performer and author Alicia Agustín and the artists* collective Guerilla Architects embark on a search for the ambivalences of contemporary urban development and make them perceptible as a community experience.
The first act „We are sorry!“ is the immersive prelude to the trilogy, a cathartic procession and guided tour along the speculative backdrop of the northern bank of the Spree. In the setting of a showroom, like the one set up by the real estate industry for sales talks of planned but not yet realised building projects, the video performance confronts the audience with the closely interwoven strands of destiny of urban development, directs the attention to the perception and acceptance of responsibility of all actors* in relation to the sell-out of the city and asks the question: Who is responsible?
