Over the course of the last 6 months, I’ve been proud to collaborate with Anthropictures and the Goethe Institut on an anthropological project examining “Arrival Cities”, or rather, neighborhoods within major urban areas across the globe that attract a high number of immigrants. The exhibition opens at Kasárna Karlín on September 19th.
“Arrival City: Jihozápadní město // Southwest City” is a continuation of “Making Heimat: Germany Arrival Country”, a project originally presented at the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale. The German project reacted to the influx of refugees in 2015, mapping the architectural reflection of the new arrivals in German towns and cities.
The original authors of the exhibition then asked various offices of the Goethe-Institut spanning 9 different countries around the world to create satellite exhibitions, each reflecting their own “Arrival City” in their respective contexts.
