In the beginning of 2023, when Constructlab’s first Messy Kiosk moved from Berlin to Basel it became a central gathering point in the Civic Space of FHNW Art School Basel. Soon it became clear that a lot of local parties in Berlin still had plans for our kiosk.
After it came out of the “Living the City” exhibition the kiosk was made mobile and moved through different parts of the city. While it’s usage and message was continuously changing the Messy Kiosk always functioned as a tiny social node, a dynamic pocket of energy that colors its surroundings.
Still being clean and pristine our new kiosk is now ready to be activated. This summer our 2nd Messy Kiosk will travel through Berlin as The Kiosk of Solidarity. On its journey, it will constantly transform and intervene in the most diverse contexts: as a space of possibility, as a mobile meeting space, as a collaborative place of knowledge exchange, as a transformative platform or as a laboratory for urban practice knowledge.
On June 1st 2023 we celebrate the first activation of the kiosk on the square next to our workshop on the Dragonerareal, Berlin (with Graphic Design by Bureau Est).
Locations of the Kiosk in the summer of 2023 u.a. Alexanderplatz, Kottbusser Tor, Leopoldplatz, Molkenmarkt, Oranienplatz, Sonnenallee, Washingtonplatz (tbc).
