Berlin Research Trip
Visit to the Gallerie im Kornerpark, Neukolln, Berlin for a show of work from the Pilotprojekt residency program in Gropiusstadt, Berlin. Pilotprojekt is a year-round residency program in a highrise flat in an area of Berlin called Gropiusstadt. Artists live and work for 1 –2 weeks at a time in the flat and the surrounding areas. A book, detailing the works produced or proposed is published at the end of each year. The project has been running since 2002. Gropiusstadt is a post-war overspill town on the outskirts of Berlin. The masterplan for the area was designed by Walter Gropius but due to severehousing shortage in the post-war period, his plans were substantially altered.
