PARTICIPATORY PROJECT ABOUT CULTURAL HERITAGE AND PUBLIC SPACE IN BERLIN MITTE
Which connection has teenagers´daily life with the history of Berlin? What do young people understand under cultural heritage? Er(be)leben invited teenagers to look into these questions on the example of 4 historical places in Berlin Mitte: Nikolaiviertel, Franziskaner Klosterkirchenruine, Alexanderplatz and Karl-Marx-Allee. We related each of these places with one concept, so Nikolaiviertel was connected with exchange, Klosterkirchenruine with innovation, Alexanderplatz with conflict and Karl-Marx-Allee with mobility.
Each group developed an artistic project, which was presented in an exhibition at Alte Münze. At that point, a series of discussions about future perspectives around these places started. The result of these conversations was crystalized in a Manifest for urban rights for young people in the public space. The manifest was published as LED text in the Klosterkirchenruine.
Our intention is to re-discover the cityscape together with the teenagers, to understand it as a possibility to learn, to transform it into a platform for artistic interventions, which join history and future.
