About

Lars Preisser / Katharina Sieverding 

The focus of this year’s competition »Posters made political« is the connection between the outlying district of Berlin-Hellersdorf and the Alexanderplatz—the latter being an emblem of the urban downtown hub as well as the original competition venue. Under the motto “Right to the City“ artistic projects examine the relationship between urban policy and civic participation, and ask: Who is the city? Who does it belong to?

Artists 2018:
Mio Okido, Sven Johne (from 27 September), Stephan Kurr, mark, Felix Pestemer & GloReiche Nachbarschaft (from 16 November), Lars Preisser, Katharina Sieverding (from 29 November)


Lars Preisser
»Die letzten Brachen«
Alexanderplatz U5: 30 November – 6 Dezember 2018

Lars Preisser films wastelands and vacant lots in Berlin. They were once the city’s hallmark and so remain, for him, a potent reminder of his childhood here. He regards them as nature reserves beyond the tidy confines of urban streets and parks, and as monuments too. The stills reproduced here as billboards are from his cinematic archive of Berlin’s vanishing untamed spaces.   


Katharina Sieverding
»Kunst im Untergrund 1958 – 2018 / Hellersdorf«
Alexanderplatz U5: 30 November – 6 Dezember 2018
station urbaner kulturen: 30 November – 15 Dezember 2018

On the one hand, Hellersdorf is the destination of a trip undertaken by two contemporaries who meet on the platform at Frankfurt/Main Airport. On the other, there is a motif consisting of overlapping visual planes: the model of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp and the Holocaust Monument, the Monument for the Murdered Jews of Europe, in Berlin-Mitte. The pictorial composition is intended to spur reflection on the reasons for the current radical resurgence of exclusion, right-wing populism, racism and anti-Semitism. 
On show in Hellersdorf are other works by Katharina Sieverding previously installed in public space: »Deutschland wird deutscher«, »Die Pleite« and »Global Desire I + II«  hence stand in dialog with the parallel exhibition of billboard posters at Alexanderplatz Underground station.
