Showcase installation in an empty shop

During the workshop, young neighbors complained about the lack of Manga shops in Moabit. By means of a game based on surrealistic methods, we developed a Manga story which could be downloaded by simply scanning a QR-Code hanging in the shop window.

3G-SHOP is a series of artistic interventions in empty shops in Berlin´s district of Moabit, developed in different phases: research, production and impact. Firstly, we hosted a two-day workshop with the locals, where we collected impressions, ideas and needs, alongside discussing different possibilities for local development. During these meetings we tried to merge individual wishes with collective needs for that specific neighborhood. This time was dedicated to research, conceptual definitions and interchange with the neighbors. After that, iCollective’s team analyzed the ideas that came out during the meetings and proposed an installation in order to imaginatively recreate it.
