Presented as part of a collaboration entitled Subterranean Futures, between Berlin based gallery / artist collective Scotty Enterprises and Campbell Works,
Subterranean Futures - Living between dystopia and utopia
Berlin and London, two capitals caught up in an endless process of gentrification. As the prosperity of a city rises and falls over the decades so too does the daily experience of those who inhabit it. These two cities are at very different stages in this perpetual cycle with Berliners “only” facing rising rents while London is being turned into a kind of Disneyland for investors who have no intention of ever living there. Could this be the future for other European cities, or indeed other global cities? or is the economic growth of one capital at the cost of others?
