In cooperation with:

Part II: A Feminist Perspective for Berlin Today! What Could a Non-Sexist City Look Like?*

The series Feminist Housing (Her)Stories for the Future. BERLIN, BAUHAUS and BEYOND deals with feminist approaches, discussions and practices in architecture, as well as spatial and urban planning, in which gender relations become visible as diverse asymmetrical ideas of living, relationships and professional life. Starting from the pioneers of architecture in the 1920s (focus of the first part in autumn 2019), the second part will discuss the impacts of the second women’s movement on architecture, living, housing and activism to the present in a contradictory globalized economy, presenting feminist and inclusive alternatives for the future.

A Feminist Perspective for Berlin Today! What Could a Non-Sexist City Look Like?

22.8.-19.9.2020 // Wed.-Sat. // 16:00-19:00

Opening: 21.8.2020 // 19:00
& DJ T-INA Darling

With contributions from fem_arc, Sarah Held, Elke Krasny & Sophie Lingg & Claudia Lomoschitz, Dorothea Nold, Banu Çiçek Tülü, Lena Wegmann & Tabea Latocha and Ina Wudtke, the exhibition is dedicated to urban and spatial concepts from a feminist perspective in installations, photographs, sound and text works. The works address current urban and social imbalances and develop feminist visions of urban politics for a future free of discrimination. By means of mapping, the works are situated in the urban environment of Berlin in collaboration with the Chair for Urban Design and Urbanization at TU Berlin’s Institute for Architecture.

On the evening of the opening, DJ T-INA Darling aka Ina Wudtke presents a conceptual DJ Set with protest songs against rising rents and displacement.

Mapping- and Research Seminar

17.8.-20.8.2020 // Kick-Off: 17.8.2020 // 10:00

by Martha Wegewitz (Chair for Urban Design and Urbanisation CUD am Institut für Architektur der Technischen Universität Berlin)

What does the feminist appropriation of (urban)space mean for a critical planning practice? Which roles do women play in architecture, planning, and urban policy? Students grapple with the exhibited artistic positions on feminist spaces, practices, and visions in architecture and social planning in the exhibition “A feminist perspective for Berlin today! What could a non-sexist city look like?” A cartographic spatial installation is created by means of spatial analysis and artistic and social research methods that situate the positions in Berlin’s urban space.

FEMINIST NIGHT SCAPES

A Manifest for the night. Collective Nightwalk with Elke Krasny, Sophie Lingg, Claudia Lomoschitz

Thursday- to Friday night 27.3.2020 // 2:00-4:00

FLINT groups parade through the night in a feminist city. They discover places, sing, perform scores, stroll, drink on the corner, and support one another. The feminist city makes it possible for all bodies and genders to move freely. How can this be tested in the actual city?

meeting point: Aral Tankstelle, Vor dem Schlesischen Tor, 10997 Berlin.

Symposium

City Walk, moderated by fem_arc

September 2020 // Meeting Point and time will be announced here www.galeriefutura.de

In a city walk guided by sound recordings, we explore feminist perspectives on urban space and the architecture of Berlin. Places, stories, and subjective spatial impressions overlap with the listener’s own impressions.

 

Feminist Housing (Her)stories for the future. BERLIN, BAUHAUS and BEYOND was initiated and conceived by Felicita Reuschling and developed in curatorial collaboration with Katharina Koch and Sylvia Sadzinski (alpha nova & galerie futura). The second part takes place in cooperation with Anna Heilgemeir, Dagmar Pelger und Martha Wegewitz (Chair for Urban Design and Urbanisation CUD am Institut für Architektur der Technische Universität Berlin) and Helle Panke e.V.. Felicita Reuschling passed away in June 2019. The series, of which she was the decisive inspiration for ideas and themes, will be realized and continued in her spirit and in memory of her as a friend, colleague and ingenious feminist thinker and practitioner.
