A consensual house squat with the help of the word "art"
2016-2018


Houses that are to be demolished and replaced by new ones are often empty for a long time, between the extract of the last inhabitants and the really demolition due to construction delays. Due to the applicable rental law, its not possible to rent them temporarily in this intermediate phase. They can only be inhabited as "art project", because in this case individual agreements are possible.












The first realization of my living and art concept with artist colleagues, citizens and refugees needs and creats very own pictures. Always three shots, of important moments, of the living rooms and of the exhibited art works, I assemble into one tableau.
