»Wechsel der Beleuchtung«
In 1985 a reader of the Berliner Zeitung wrote a letter to the editor that read: “If you are walking along the banks of the Spree on the Fischerinsel, in the direction of HOG “Fischerkiez”, you are delighted by the wonderful new houses on the Wallstraße. But then you notice a truly rat’s castle shortly before the bridge, Neue Roßstraße. My question is: why don’t you take this delapidated housing down?”
This letter was one of the starting points of Florian Neufeldts intervention in the historic space of the Wallstraße 85.
These opposing interests – on one hand tearing down and building new and on the other hand the conservation of historically valuable architecture – thematized.
