The architecture of the social space

Curators: Bettina Steinbruegge and Vessela Nozharova

05.09 - 10.10.2008

ZERO GRAVITY
The architecture of social space
The exhibition „Zero Gravity“ observes society in the light of architectural social spaces. We live in a situation in which there is hardly any social, moral, and political base and where group-identity experiences are absent. The fragmentation of common knowledge and perception because of the transfer of former public or centralised media and places leads to a taking off of grounding and a missing common idea about how we want to life together. Therefore, in architecture as well as in art, many artists try to go beyond a stable gravity and question the idea altogether.
Cities are a place of social intercourse and get together. A city and its facades show a lot about the condition of a society. The development of our urban infrastructure is based on popular consensus as well as on the idea of branding. The majority of city branding projects are based on civic processes that are built upon public participation and popular consensus. Representation and reality often become a blur. But cities are more than a product one buys or destinations to which one transfers, they have been throughout history places that nurture ideas and enterprises over the time. Especially in the 20th century, European cities faced among others Modernism, Fascism, Wars, Stalinism, Socialism, Cold War, and Capitalism. In a steady rhythm of demolition, planning and new developments, most of the cities developed into a conglomerate of inconsistent ideological elements that mirror history. Cultural change, determination of identity and the new positioning of a country and of a generation are visible in “built space”. Urban transformations followed step by step the social and cultural change and emphasized a city’s characteristic identity.
The exhibition brings together a scenario that starts with former utopian thinking, that reflects today’s situation and that adventures the tomorrow. An urgent and sincere need of a conceptual redefinition of what locality means and what it is potential, constitutes a starting point for debating upon the new impulses and desires, concerning the most crucial questions of contemporary society.
