Culture Talk: Graffiti = Gentrification?!
Platoon Culture Talks are a monthly series of debates involving artists, scientists and scene players, discussing the controversial issues, trends and challenges that society faces today.
This month’s meeting starts at the premise that Berlin has already been gentrified. The culprits: bankers, investors, politicians and the like. But is this answer too simple? What if street art, graffiti and other forms of sub-culture mediums that claim to rebel against gentrification are actually contributing to it?
Debating this hot potato will be four figures qualified to proffer their thoughts:
- Bastian Lange, Humboldt-Universität / Multiplicities
- Danny Doom, Urban Artist
- Gerhard Wick, former City Community Developer
- Lutz Henke, Artitude e.V. / BMW Guggenheim Lab
Moderated by Alexandra Droener, Platoon member #5932
