On saturday, 28th JulY A TRANS Berlin opened, the last exhibition at the RiverClub Gallery, part of the test-site of the 5th International Architecture Biennale: Making City.
Beginning in 2006 A trans Berlin has offered a platform to individuals who value artistic-architectonic visions and give attentiveness to social questions. With determination in her search for allies and like-minded individuals and groups, founder and architect Isolde Nagel has presented a program designed to reflect, redefine and transform spatial, social, and urban phenomena. Fascinated by projects that transcend disciplinary boundaries, the program call attention to new and experimental tendencies that impact urban practices and identities within the city of Berlin but also other global metropolises.
For the 5th IABR: Test-Site Riverclub Gallery, A trans Berlin has invited participants from a variety of backgrounds who offer a fresh perspective on the “ideal” (philos.: “the ideational”, germ.: “das Ideelle”).
