Auszeichnung
künstlerischer Projekträume
und -initiativen
Wenn die Stadt verkauft ist, erübrigen sich alle weiteren Fragen.Es sollten möglichst einfache, kurzfristige Förderungen ent­wickelt werden, die dem Geist künstlerischer Aktionen entge­genkommen.For many decades Berlin has developed a lively, diverse, and independent way of producing culture and counteracting government decisions, based on, local, generous, and enthusiastic, but also worried, social communities that exchanged resources and ideas ­within a larger political debate. The city became a “natural” shelter and ­fertile environment for dissidents, artists, political refugees, and immigrants with any background also due to the need to overcome a traumatic past full of human generated atrocities that are still present in people memories and behaviour.
