Besichtigungstermin! is a temporary art exhibition, which aims to open a dialogue about the housing crisis of metropolitan areas in a 20 square-meters room in the unaffordable neighbourhood of Friedrichshain. A district that has been already changed, raising a big question for the future of Kreuzberg and Neukölln.
People from all over the world are migrating in the fast-growing and promising capital of Germany, leading to a huge demand that disorganises the housing structure. Contemplating the big number of short-term rental options and the rising prices of residential areas by real estate companies, brings up a big headache to everyone who is looking for an apartment.
about the artist:
The Krank (Greece, 1988) is a Berlin-based urban artist focusing on typography and abstract expressionism. He has a distinct and strong Berliner aesthetic portraying deep messages
which take over space by creating a unique and dynamic art installation both indoors and outdoors. The Krank hides stories and messages in his works that speak about his worldview.
“My stories are written in a very deep visual language that reflects the impact of contemporary life in human psychology and in the society.”
His ideology revolves around conscience and humanity. Through his projects, he tries to develop an ethical state within the complex structure of modern life, aiming at a deeper understanding of the substantive. It is his duty to capture the most sincere interpretation of the world by opening up a dialogue for alternative visions.
Besichtigungstermin! is part of UrbanCrisis 2020, an ongoing art project by TheKrank, which exams the deterioration in the condition of modern urbanisation through humanitarian perspective.
