Not only do we move ourselves daily through urban space, but it is also the specific design of this space that moves and guides us. In almost no other city is this more apparent than in Berlin. The cityscape has undergone permanent change since its reunification that ranges from hundreds of individual construction projects and the conversion of existing structures to the upheaval of entire districts. The exhibition catalogue Berlin Raum Radar sets out to trace this urban morphology. In more than eighty works it brings together artistic examinations of urban space in Berlin from the past fifteen years. Whether sensitive detail study, philosophical observation, or creative vision—the various perspectives constitute a panorama of the changes in Berlin. With eyes wide open, one can trace a transformation that not only characterizes the appearance of a city but also equally influences our perception in lasting and continually new ways.
