We decide how we reside
Participatory projects in Berlin, Istanbul, and Marseille
We decide how we reside” invites artists, architects and residents from Berlin, Istanbul, and Marseilles to develop images and concepts for self-determined dwelling. The project was developed by HKW´s Education department in the framework of the interdisciplinary program “Wohnungsfrage” seeking to stimulate a practical and likewise radical discourse on housing by initiating collaborations among international and local players in the fields of architecture, urban planning, politics, arts, science and activism.
The project participants – the Kotti-Shop (Berlin), PASAJ (Istanbul), and La Folie Kilomètre (Marseilles) – are embedded in sociopolitical flashpoints of their respective cities and share a participatory methodology which understands knowledge production as a social process.
