This summer the Osthang Project – International Summer School and Festival for Future Modes of Living Together is taking place on the underused plot of the Osthang, located amid the historically significant ensemble of the former artist colony Mathildenhöhe. As Summer School and festival it will bring together knowledge and experience from architecture, social and political science, economy, activism and art, as well as experimental building and experimental forms of living from around the world.
Have you ever wondered why hotel rooms are rarely places you’d gladly fall asleep or wake up in? They often present you with ghastly carpets,antiseptic surfaces, perfidious artworks and dreadfully decorated walls, not to mention a disappointing view and a catastrophic hotel bar. Is it so difficult to design a room where someone would enjoy spending a night? A room that offers a unique view, a divine bed and is as snug a beaver’s den?

“Le 28.06.2013, la ville de Nantes fut conquise par l‘Art.”
“On the 28.06.2013, the city of Nantes was conquered by Art.”
The work „28.06.2013, MONUMENTS“ is a collaborative artistic research into the creation of a moment. It celebrates public urban spaces as the spaces for the unplanned occasional encounter with the other, the spaces where the urban culture of tolerance is refined. The open acessibility of the public spaces also makes them potential political spaces, which the work celebrates in a second layer.
Raumlabor’s ongoing engagement on the former airfield of Tempelhof ranges from long-term planning to temporary interventions on site. it displays our role as a link between the city and its inhabitants. This commitment demands to perform in changing roles to develop ideas for its future use.
Re-cycling, up-cycling, pre-cycling – we like to use materials with a story. We se the material world as a world of flows and transfigurations and our intervention in it aas a moment of diversion of these flows. We like to borrow stuff from the system of resource cycles, we like to cut short the cycles of resource – product – trash to explore ways to focus more on imagination and less on consumption of ressources. In many project we use discarded materials as old doors, windows, furniture, bottles, car door to create new spaces. For temporary projects we extract elements form the production cycle and return them at the end of the projects.
The urban transformation process in the cities of the former GDR was for a long time framed as a process of shrinkage. Underlying to this is a fundamental change from a socialist to a capitalist economy. Workplaces were lost, career paths disrupted, social contexts dissolved. At the same time, the peaceful end of the socialist regime was the beginning of a big utopian hope to a society which is more inclusive, democratic, fair and free.
GETTING BEHIND THE SCENES
The GREATED FUTURES is a vision of a space in a post-oil-shock-scenario, where today merges with the past, by referring to metaphoric narratives of past visions of the future. It is shown as part of the exhibition “regress / progress” at the The Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw. more
One of the mayor legacies of modernist architecture is the slogans that made it into the everyday thinking of people towards space. Everybody is familiar with „Less is more“ and „Form follows Function“. The linearity of these arguments is illusive. Life is more than one sentence and Architecture is too. more
