Public intervention – Weimar 2009 – UrbanDÆ – Publication: Koca Inn, Revolver Publishing, Berlin 2010 

For two weeks, UrbanDÆ, a temporary research group based in Weimar and Salvador da Bahia, occupied the Kiosk of Contemporary Art, the Sophienstiftsplatz and the surrounding traffic islands. Urban creativity inherent to survival strategies was imported from the tropics and collaborative community experiences still present in many East Germans’ memories were revisited. These were embedded in an urban-artistic device that invited passers-by to engage with our ever-changing facilities: a mini hotel, a mobile kitchen, a showroom, a café, a dance hall, a black market of knowledge and skills, a library, a TV room, a gambling salon, a playground, all as if it were in a tropical resort.
