Reclaim the Water!
Time and again, freethinkers, rebels and artists have gone on the water in search of new possibilities and means of expression which they could not find on land or which were denied to them due to ownership or laws. The increasing lack of space combined with inflation and the disappearance of open spaces in the cities has promoted the perception that the waters are also to be understood as public space and thus represent an option for expanding the living space. The photo exhibition shows international and Berlin projects and tells of repression as well as empowerment.
THE ‚RUMMELSBURGER BUCHT‘ IN BERLIN IS ONE OF THE LAST FREE SPACES OF THE CITY, A LOCAL RECREATION AREA FOR THE SURROUNDING QUARTERS. PEOPLE LIVING ON HOUSEBOATS AND AN OLD CARGO SHIP, THAT IS USED AS A MEETING POINT FOR CREATIVES AND CULTURAL INITIATIVES, ARE ANCHORING IN THE BAY. NOW THERE IS THE PLAN TO BUILD A HUGE THEME PARK, THAT IS LEAVING THE FATE OF THE PEOPLE LIVING AND WORKING IN THE BAY UNCERTAIN.
