Urban (un)rest

During the summer months of 2023, the residents of 52 Weichselstraße, Berlin, courageously and successfully thwarted the sale of their home to a Hamburg speculator with close ties to AfD (a notorious ultra-right party). Everyone living and working there, including the squirrels, the birds, and the wild vines, were saved from imminent eviction.
During the 48 Stunden Neukölln art festival, by means of an exhibition in the Erdemuseum – the project space of female artist Li Koelan at ´Weichsel52´ - the residents will present an account of their experience. Their extraordinary resistance will be shown through various art forms.

The house was saved thanks to many artistic events, activities which we will evoke in the exhibition. We will show drawings made by us, review our street actions through a slide show and a video projection, and we will celebrate our success in style with a concert by the singer Conchita Barbé Vicuña. Visitors will be invited to hear our story, and take part in artistic activities, such as the creation of a wish-tree in front of the building. We, as a community, underwent these demanding months as a different time within normal time, a period during which we were driven by existential fear but supported by mutual solidarity. The question “How do we actually want to live?” still resonates in us today.
