Laura Yuile will use the time at the residency to explore the political meaning, related “global” aesthetic, and community impact, of current property developments within Berlin. This interest stems primarily from the fact that property prices in Berlin have been increasing in price quicker than any other city in the world over the past few years; and is a continuation of her recent research into luxury property developments in London that has produced the “private performance” series Asset Arrest. The artist will engage in ongoing site visits over the two-month period, inviting different individuals to engage in site-(un?) specific conversations. These slight interventions into – or occupations of – space through presence and conversation will be documented via audio or video in order to contribute towards a podcast series.
