Our place at Annenstrasse 52 is opened up into the backyard by a staircase*. A bridge, creating permeability. From urban space into “idyllic backyard ambiance” with AC sound and dumpster ensembles. Here and there, roses, shrubs, too. Every opening extends the range of perception and of possibilities, also entails uncertainty. That’s normal and harbours the chance to engage – on an artistic as well as a social level.
In the banality, the space widens. Islands of heightened awareness begin to form. Along the south-north axis, everything that has something to share that speaks to us is brought to the scene. In the best case, more doors than those existing in space are opened.
* Built by reusing a part from an old metal staircase and integrating it into a new timber structure.
