STATISTA Presentation Week
12 – 16 September 2019 (https://www.facebook.com/events/452475792259538/)
Opening: 11 September 2019, 7 pm
Within the vast empty spaces of the Haus der Statistik near Alexanderplatz, STATISTA is testing whether working in the spirit of the Commons is an option even within today’s context of city development. With the aid of ten distinct playing fields, STATISTA generates artistic prototypes for a civil society built on collective principles. The results of these artistic working processes will be made publicly visible during the STATISTA Presentation Week from 12 – 16 September 2019: Including neighbourhood initiatives, a crypto-currency reflecting the wellbeing of bees, a facade design built for ecological inclusivity, and an international conference. Temporary usage, in this case, does not lead to gentrification, but to a form of urban renewal that is to the benefit of all.
Opening Programme, 11 September 2019:
7:00 pm Choir of Statistics, performance by raumlaborberlin and Bernadette La Hengst
8:15 pm Parallel presentations of all projects together with artists
