No Image // Generic Objects

WORKSHOP C - GENERIC OBJECTS

 

With a two-year project, No-Image is undertaking an analysis of Berlin's urban fringes. In the face of the city’s planned expansion and development into its outlying areas, No-Image aims to explore the existing qualities and characteristics of the periphery, to activate an imagination for the periphery’s development.

 

Generic Objects concerns the non-architectural elements that fill the in-between and everyday of Berlin’s fringes. These objects epitomize and influence the utopian visions and desires of these areas. Whether examining the subconscious of the lower-middle-class developments of single-family-homes, or looking to the proliferations of industrial and mixed use areas, generic objects stress questions of context. What does the single household’s desire of having a swimmingpool mean for a community when every neighbour has that wish? What is contextual when a mass of individual wishes creates a physical landscape of desire? Generic Objects seeks a broader understanding of spatial elements and aims to emphasize the non-architectural.

 

Opening program // September 28, 2017 // 7 pm

Time: 28 September – 3 October 2017

 

Berlin's division is no longer based on the polarisation of West and East Berlin. Increasingly, it is based on In and Out. But what is the Out? Where does Out begin? What shapes the Out, and what goes on Out There? At the Kick-off-Event on September 28, 2017, they will host a forum for various perceptions from architects, urbanists, and developers concerning the Out. The panels will be followed by a table discussion. The event is envisioned as a collective brainstorming on the concepts, conflicts and urgencies regarding the urban periphery.

The workshops and events will be conducted in English.
