J.U.S.T = Jamming Underused Socialist Treasures

How seven Mayors didn’t kill the Ghost? graffiti on the abandoned beer-bar Tauro Ragas, serve as a trigger to dig into complex past and question blurred future of the once important social space. Alternative visualization strategies has been practiced with students from EHU and activists from Archfondas, during the 3 days productive-camping at another underused cultural space KultFlux. Retracing famous sculpture of Tauro and bringing it back to original location in the sort of religious procession, opened up participative photo exhibition and invites people to rethink existing cultural developments embedded in commodification of leisure.

PUF Remix_Making Visible_video

August 2011, video director & editing Julia Kloiber

Making-visible is a prerequisite for collective knowledge – and each mode of production makes their own, be it through visual or other channels. AXP C4 aims to question the differences and similarities between science and the plastic arts in terms of making-visible. In a playful examination of the scientific format of the conference, work and interventions are seen through open debates about science, art and architectural production. In itself a specific format of making-visible, the video at the same time documents what happened on occasion of C4 and shapes the retrospective perception of the event.

Reviewing Making-Visible

The Anxious Prop Case 4, Reviewing Making-Visible, Stattbad Wedding , 30.03.2011, Berlin

Case 4 was collective effort to examine differences and similarities between science and plastic arts in terms of making-visible. By deconstructing scientific format of the conference, interdisciplinary team generated simultaneous discussions and presented new issue of feuilleton. Site-specific intervention in the sloped pool underlined sectional quality of location and created debates around customized bar-tables. This circular arena with void centre served as spatial model in which real-time conversations where recorded by rotating mobile with microphone at the end. Randomly selected thoughts of participants where re-appropriated and printed in the new visual language.

Sichuan Hot (S)pots

Post-earthquake scenario-planning, Sichuan Area; cooperation with Tongji University Shanghai, Jan/Feb. 2009.

In post-earthquake planning procedures, ordinary real-estate logic and infrastructural investments reject new-formed needs of citizens. Balanced development without imposing final spatial outcome should involve all players of reconstruction on one table. That table, symbolically represented by a toolbox and its “ingredients”, serves as a communication device where all members are treated equally. Quality and taste of the “soup” depends on combination of “ingredients” and time management.

Wrecking Pendulum [Constructing Deconstruction]

The Anxious Prop Case 2, Have Balls [Eccentric] , Alexanderplatz Pavilion , 29.07.2010, Berlin

The project aimed to discuss destruction-driven urban developments of Alexanderplatz in the light of existing planner’s visions for this highly political place. As an object that has been constructed to be destroyed, Wrecking Pendulum contains complex mathematical patterns in the prototyping and digital fabrication phase and is constituted by its performative character rooted in the idea of prop in theater. Questioning production of space through the idea of producing site-specific knowledge, the project asked for the incorporation of cultural memory and existing social landscape at Alexanderplatz as crucial factors in the formation of the new.
