People who have saved this event:



Hintertreppen, or ‘rear stairs’, are peculiarities of late 19th and early 20th century architecture. As the middle classes became increasingly able to express their elaborate lifestyles in architecture, they began to show interest in removing the substructure of their existence from direct view: namely, the servants. In various large-scale dwellings, Hintertreppen (also called ‘servant stairs’) were built, which became places of simultaneous exchange and labour, of secrets – but also exclusion. Located in a Berlin Hintertreppe, the site-specific work Stufen (Steps), by Birgit Auf der Lauer & Caspar Pauli, explores this special social and community space.
