Berlin ist zwar noch interessant, jedoch gibt es inzwischen auch andere europäische (vor allem ost­europäische) Metropolen, die mit ähnlichen Attributen wie Berlin werben.It always feels quite special when an institution catches the zeitgeist of a moment. Project spaces have a lot more freedom in this sense, and they can truly, sincerely, reflect a moment or a movement as it is happening. They are essential to a critically active arts scene. Perhaps the orientation of project ­spaces has been forced to shift towards something more self-sustain­able – but that might not be a bad thing.It just makes my heart sing. Despite all that, I believe in art, but I guess it is about time to find new ways (again).
