Keine Wohnungsnoth mehr!
In Keine Wohnungsnoth mehr! (End the Housing Shortage!), Zorka Wollny quotes a song by August Conradi from 1873 that was popular in Berlin during the great Gründerzeit nineteenth-century construction boom. “In the cosmopolitan city of Berlin, houses and streets are being built all over the place. And yet you can’t find an apartment anywhere, the tenants don’t know where to turn...” goes the song. It is striking how relevant these lines are again today, almost 150 years later. Zorka Wollny reinterprets the piece in light of current debates about housing shortages in Berlin. The resulting eight songs were recorded together with professional musicians. In the run-up to the program weekend in September, one piece per day will be played in the afternoon via small loudspeakers installed in the trees along Stallschreiberstr. From September 25-26, all pieces will be played in a loop at the same location.
