WEDDING Tour: Discursive Exploration of Alt-Mitte and Wedding
12. October 2013 @ 12:00 - 17:00€7
The SUPERMARKT is located in midst of upgrading scenarios coming up from Alt-Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg and the Weddinger hinterland which is still shaped by every day problems, as we can read about in the Berlin tabloids. We will hike through these urban spaces to have a closer look at cultural and social phenomens, and discuss alternative forms of living or working while we will pass some of the new cultural hotspots and indicators of change in Wedding – thus training our own perception in public space. On our tour we will talk and think about which forms of a colorful, manifold and social fair-minded urban live might be thinkable at all in view of the raising challenges for township development and social politics in an area like Wedding and think about our own roles in this process.
For this purpose Jürgen Breiter (44 / 12 of them in Wedding) as an architect, urban curator and member of the initiative Stadt Neudenken contributes next to his expertise in the field of urban development, cultural economy and social entrepreneurship, as initiator and resident of a tenant house project near to Leopold Platz also his own personal living and life experiences in Wedding. Besides Jürgen also operates some own cultural projects such as www.einortzumlesen.de about the burning of books at Bebelplatz in 1933 in Berlin or www.stadtfund.de / http://de.dawanda.com/shop/stadtfund about consumer philosophy and upcycling design.
