From May to December 2019, the STATISTA project investigates how cooperation oriented to the common good can succeed. In ten fields of action, STATISTA aims to develop artistic prototypes for an urban society based on common property: from a crypto currency based on the welfare of bees to near-natural façade design, neighbourly cooperation and an international conference in autumn. Intermediate use here does not lead to gentrification, but to perpetuation and revaluation in the interest of all – in the sense of a state art of the future.
The main actors and fields of action will be presented at the press conference on May 20th 2019 at 11 am in the Werkstatt Haus der Statistik (Karl-Marx-Allee 1, 10178 Berlin).
The exhibition is expected to open on June 7th 2019, 7 to 10 pm. DEEDS.WORLD will continue to report.
