We will have two different walks during Urban Interface Oslo. The first one is just a walk, not a guided tour. It will be part of the opening on Thursday night, 13th. After the speeches and some social talk supported by a free drink we will depart from Sound of Mu around 8.30 pm and walk together to the artworks’ sites. This walk will be accompanied by the artists and you can request information anytime or just walk, watch, listen and enjoy. Please bring your radios, because three of HC Gilje’s Soundpockets are only audible through radio.

The second walk is a guided tour by me and Hillevi Munthe, the exhibition producer. It takes place on Sunday 16th, 3 pm and also starts at Sound of Mu, the Urban Interface Oslo headquaters. We will give a short introduction into the exhibition project and to every artwork. As most of the artists will have left Olso by Sunday, only Vibeke Jensen will present her piece, The Blue Wall of Silence, herself. This tour will take approximately 1,5 hrs. Don’t forget to bring radios in order to find and listen to the Soundpockets!

Sparwasser HQ’s practice is characterized by an open, process-oriented participation from a large group of artists and theorists, influencing the program as well as the day to day running of the space. Theory and organization result from this artistic collaboration. New projects grow out of an intense exchange of ideas, leading to constant questioning and reformulating of Sparwasser’s strategies.

Map of exhibition area - Karte des Ausstellungsgebiets

Hier nun eine Übersicht über das von uns definierte Ausstellungsgebiet von urban interface berlin. Wir haben ein Areal ausgewählt, das die beiden Bezirke Gesundbrunnen und Mitte verbindet und den Wedding am Rande noch berührt. Innerhalb des ausgewählten Bereichs im Gesundbrunnen sind in erster Linie Wohngebiete zu finden sind, die von den beiden Verkehrssachsen Brunnen- und Chausseestraße eingefasst werden. Die Architektur stammt vornehmlich aus den 50er bis 80er Jahren und ist eine klassische Mietshausarchitektur. In dem Gebiet befindet sich als ein zentraler Bau die ehemalige AEG-Fabrik, heute genutzt von der TU Berlin.

Aus dem Wikipedia-Artikel:

1887 erwarb die Gesellschaft in Berlin-Wedding das Areal zwischen Ackerstraße, Feldstraße, Hermsdorfer Straße (der heutigen Max-Urich-Straße) und der Hussitenstraße, auf dem sich vorher die „Weddingsche Maschinenfabrik“ von Wilhelm Wedding befand. Im gleichen Jahr erfolgte eine Umstrukturierung, die Erweiterung der Produktionspalette und die Namensänderung auf „Allgemeine Elektricitäts-Gesellschaft“, abgekürzt AEG. Paul Tropp und Franz Schwechten entwarfen für das Gelände einen fünfstöckigen Backsteinbau, der von 1888 bis 1890 erbaut wurde und das Areal noch heute umschließt.
