GA estudio participated in the Art Festival “48 Stunden Neukölln”, a forum for projects in all conceivable artistic disciplines found in the art scene in Berlin. The festival both presents and supports art, thereby contributing to discussions of ideas effecting society at large while also reflecting said society.
From a daily intuitive practice in the workshop testing prototypes of a utopian character with simple materials (ropes, balloons, cloth, airbags, wire, nails, wooden blocks, clay and stones), we work an open source architecture, socially active that impacts the notions of control and consumption that are handled institutionally at the time of addressing common space. Our practice evolves from the investigation of contemporary archeology, developing spatial configurations that emphasize the role of architecture as support for imaginaries.
“The connection with the exotic is reversed in this work, the strangeness is used again as a call for future project work. Fragile and unstable prototypes enter into a dialogue with time architecture and turn out to be heterotopias (Foucault) or non-places that represent a vision of the social city. In response to the traditional architecture (rigid), GA estudio proposes a city concept on a microscale, in which tense structures work together between rigid and non-rigid elements, where the whole system works. They are flexible and propose social, mechanical structures of interrelation and proximity that seek new horizons and understand the city as a hope for communication and social mobility.” Curator Paz Ponce.
