station urbaner kulturen is a decentralised location of the neuen Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst (‘new society for fine arts’, nGbK) in the large housing estate of Berlin-Hellersdorf. With a program of discursive events, exhibitions, and interventions in public space, artists and residents work together on the development of the district. Since 2014, the initiators have realised over 100 events in Hellersdorf, brought in local, national and international artists and collaborated with numerous partners in the district and across Berlin. They have established binding relationships with residents and local partners in the areas of education, inclusion, childcare and youth work, culture, nature conservation, sport, urban development, and others.
With the exhibition room, ‘station urbaner kulturen’ and the green area, ‘Place Internationale’, this praxis has two very different spaces for reflection, debate, and cooperation with the district’s public sphere. The nGbK Hellersdorf is thereby shaping the research field of the Stadt von Draußen (‘City from Outside’) through artistic production, intervention and networking.
