Living resorts

Harmony, freedom, security and peace - the remaining wasteland in Berlin's inner city is overtaken bit by bit by construction projects for exclusive living concepts. Is it possible that the goldenrod, a resistant, two meter high, star-shaped flowering plant, also considered a weed, makes a stand against this development?
In this mixed-media-installation we referred to the dying wastelands in the city center, placing it as a space for projection, speculation and also as a resource.
The installation contains bundles of goldenrods and the sound-play "This is not wallpaper", which presents a visionary dialogue between two imaginary future residents. The texts are based on found advertising slogans of the Berlin real estate market.

In addition we invited for a performative lecture, in which we replanted the goldenrods from privatized land back to public space and pointed out their relevance to the ecological system in the city.
