acting

acting in public / research / 2014
self-initiated actions of citizens are a permanent part of the process for creating urban areas. this bottom-up urbanism is exemplified in the south of cologne, which is called «südstadt». using a traffic median, people created a new place of interaction. «eierplätzchen» [egg place] was given as a nick-name and the locals annexed it as a public space. i wanted to honour this successful example of self-initiated actions in public space. referring to its name, i made hundreds of eggs out of concrete as a symbol for such actions. by distributing the eggs at the kisdconference «wer gestaltet die stadt?» [who shapes the city?] the power of participation and action became visible, if not tangible.
