Zukunftsland 2099 wants to conjure the utopian free spaces that we strive for in the present. Slipping into the role of a tour guide from the year 2099 Mikala Hyldig Dal takes the visitors on the bus tour “Berlin Utopian Tours” through 80 years of a fictional urban history of Berlin.

About

Berlin 2099: precarious jobs and fear for one’s livelihood are water under the bridge, artists and residents are fairly paid, studios and flats are affordable again, and there are once again free spaces available in the city – where one can dream, create, experiment, and make art. A strong civic society supports the realized utopia: people of different origins and backgrounds dedicate themselves to the common good.

Zukunftsland 2099 wants to conjure the utopian free spaces that we strive for in the present. For many Berliners (including most artists), existence in 2019 is determined by precarious working and living conditions. Instead of criticizing the status quo, Zukunftsland 2099 wants to bring visions of a more just society to life – in an exhibition taking place at alpha nova & galerie futura between 10.5. and 8.6.2019 and using the format of a bus tour through Berlin-Kreuzberg, which represents the central feature of this project.

As with a classic sightseeing tour, the participants are led to places in the district that, like the former Cuvry Brache, have succumbed to gentrification; to those who harbor initiatives threatened by displacement (the tenants of Lausitzer Str. 10 and the Kotti & Co initiative, for example), or who could evade gentrification and are not used commercially (Prinzessinnengärten, Kunstquartier Bethanien).

Slipping into the role of a tour guide from the year 2099, the artist Mikala Hyldig Dal takes the visitors on the bus tour “Berlin Utopian Tours” through 80 years of a fictional urban history of Berlin, offering a retrospective chronicle from a positive-visionary perspective. An App developed by the artist projects 3D images that emerge from this fictional history and utopian future scenarios onto real, existing places: Hyldig Dal has named these virtual objects monuments of the future. The artists Nora Al-Badri, Lisa Glauer, Franziska Pierwoss, SUPERFILIALE (Markus Zimmermann & Markus Born) and Dorothea Nold contribute to Zukunftsland 2099 with performative interventions along the bus tour and in the exhibition. Over the course of the project, from 10.5 until 8.6.2019, the spatial and video installation SUPERFILIALE Utopian Tours can be experienced at alpha nova & galerie futura. The exhibition space simultaneously serves as a meeting point and archive, as a space of exchange and artistic production.
