Opening: Making Futures School

30. August 2019 | 17:00 19:00

Beschreibung der Veranstaltenden

Between August 30 – September 15, 2019, a school for the future of spatial practice – understanding architecture as being both a collective form and a resource – will open in the heart of Berlin, initiated by the Making Futures Bauhaus+ action research project. Departing from the 2019 Bauhaus anniversary, Making Futures School will initiate a host of different trajectories, oriented towards exploring new forms of productive cooperation, exchange, solidarity and living.

After a series of short-term action-led research activities in Berlin, Istanbul, Palermo and Oberweissbach and echoing the project’s focus on taking care of the dynamics of a place, Making Futures School will embed within, engage and confront itself with a Berlin site that is undergoing its own radical process of transformation: Haus der Statistik near Alexanderplatz. Empty since 2008, this DDR-constructed behemoth now the host of a series of pioneer initiatives, of which the School is one, where civic and public actors collaborate at eye-level to collectively invent its future.
