invisible berlin

Extremely complex political context in Berlin inspired visions and ideas towards utopia. DasUngebauteBerlin are 100 forgotten projects for a city, which wants to make them visible in an exhibition opening on the 16th July at legendary Café Moscow. The venue itself was part of a built Stalin-like utopia for a city demanding a representative avenue in the 1950s.

“Although the idealized and often radical concepts do not always respond satisfactorily to the specific context and reflect an exaggerated attitude, they are still part of the history of ideas. They reveal the aspirations of a society. […] Forgotten and repressed projects are brought to light and presented in plans and models, showing a different Berlin, as we know it, an invisible city.”
