Kunst im Untergrund – as above, so below

Interventions in Urban Space

As part of the competition Art in the Underground 2020/21: as above, so below, five artists were invited to wrestle with questions concerning the future of the city as an urban and social body. Works realized with Sasha Amaya, Clara Brinkmann, Philine Puffer, Florine Schüschke, and Juli Sikorska bring both critical acumen and a sense of humor to the study of social biotopes and the transformation of urban lived environments. Spreading out along Berlin’s underground network, their artistic intervention explored new housing, real estate publication, the idea of the home, and the rising heat in our cities.

The publication documents the project’s progress on both digital and analog interventions and the artists’ works. With a conversation between Dehlia Hannah and Nadim Samman.
