Parks and Passages: Art and Public Space in Berlin and Washington

Opening Thursday, September 13, 6 – 8 pm with Provisions Library
RSVP to 202-289-1200 ext. 160 or rsvp@washington.goethe.org
Parks & Passages is an investigation of relics, ruins and reconstruction in the capital
cities of Berlin and Washington DC.
This summer, Provisions Library sent an interdisciplinary team of Washington-based
artists and researchers to Berlin to study urban transformation in repurposed places such as Spreepark, Tempelhof Airport and KW. They met Berlin’s artists and activists, gaining insight into what makes Berlin one of the most fascinating creative cities in the world. They returned to Washington with a rooms’ worth of ideas and contexts to contribute to the redevelopment vision of Dupont Underground, an abandoned streetcar tunnel beneath DC’s Dupont Circle.
Berlin is rife with abandoned structures which have been continually re-formed by social activation and creative revitalization. The Washington team compared approaches of how historic grounds are turned into new public spaces such as memorials, playgrounds, organic community gardens, parks, and places for social experiments and art exhibitions.

Gallery Hours: Mo-Thur 9-5, Fr 9-3.

Event begins at 6:00PM
