With the trilogy "1 km2 Berlin – Die Tragödie der offenen Stadt", the artists* collective Guerilla Architects and the performer and author Alicia Agustín embark on a search for the ambivalences of contemporary urban development and make them perceptible as a community experience. The first act "We are sorry!" is the immersive prelude to the trilogy, a cathartic procession and guided tour along the speculative backdrop of the northern bank of the Spree. In the setting of a showroom like the one set up by the real estate industry for sales talks of planned but not yet realised building projects, the video performance confronts us with the closely interwoven strands of destiny of urban development, directs our attention to the perception and acceptance of responsibility of all actors* in relation to the sell-out of the city and asks the question: Who is responsible?
The room-installation and video-performance runs every day from 2 - 7 p.m. and starts every 30 minutes for two persons at a time. The desired time-slot can be selected at ticket purchase.
In German, with English subtitles.
We are getting closer!
Over four long summer weekends, we will once again open radialsystem to the public and cordially invite you to the concerts, installations, and performances by and with the Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, Hanno Leichtmann, Peter Cusack, Sandhya Daemgen, Deva Schubert, Guerilla Architects and Alicia Agustín, Sasha Waltz & Guests, Tilman O'Donnell and Mikkel Ploug, Juan Dominguez and Wojtek Blecharz.
The different rooms of the building, the Spree Terrace, and the covered Deck are all to be discovered in a different way than before. Over the past few weeks, we have come to learn how important and yet fragile the shared experience of live performances is. In order to ensure that everyone feels safe and at ease at our relaunch, we want to allow for plenty of space and time for these encounters to unfold onsite. Therefore, together with the participating artists and ensembles, we have developed artistic formats that foster unusual aesthetic experiences and through which radialsystem can also be encountered in a new way.
