Reuterstr. 7, 12053 Berlin
Das Kiez Monument is an art installation that includes a group of monuments dedicated to the Reuterstraße – the central one being made in collaboration with Centrum’s direct neighbourhood. The project aims to highlight the complexities of the Reuterstraße, its history, population and different languages. The neighbours get to decide about the content and execution of the monuments, tackling the underlying question: how do they want to be remembered in the future? Thus, the artist Patricia Sandonis with her project wants to give a voice to the people who usually don’t have a say when it comes to writing (their own) history. Moreover Das Kiez Monument is also intended as an “ecological” work of art which reflects on the materiality of our surroundings today, using the banal materials of our daily lives.
