The Mexican is a mixed drink made from corn schnapps, tomato juice, and Maggi. Invented in Hamburg, the cocktail served in a schnapps glass has been a dependable element of the beverage selection at local pubs in Berlin. For a moderate price, this drink is also offered in many bars in the so-called “Schillerkiez.” Few districts have undergone such rapid change in the past ten years as the residential area on Hermannstraße in Neukölln. Sophisticated new construction projects like the 12053 are now directly opposite the social housing of the Rollbergviertel. Franziska Pierwoss invites bus tour guests and other interested parties to a public talk with local residents and political experts. Questions of renting, visionary new construction, political responsibility, and the power aid payments will be discussed over a snack together.

Franziska Pierwoss (1981, Tübingen/Germany) is a Berlin-based performance and installation artist, who also works as an organizer and initiator of various cultural projects. With a strong focus on durational performance and collaborative practices, she develops site-specific installations and creates situations of engagement, in which personal and political boundaries are called into question. Pierwoss has shown her work at Extra City, Antwerp, ISCP, New York, Savvy contemporary, Berlin, Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, Eigen+Art Lab, Beirut Art Center and recently at Alserkal Dubai amongst many other places. Using storytelling as an explorative methodology towards History, Pierwoss has been staging performances related to historical meals since 2014 in collaboration with Sandra Teitge in Mexico City (Galeria OMR & MUAC), in Munich/Germany (Spielart Festival), and as part of the Sharjah Biennial 13 in Beirut/Lebanon.

The event takes place in the frame of Zukunftsland 2099.
