BERLIN.STATUS [2] marks the second survey of new tendencies and trends in Berlin’s art
scenes, undertaken by the curators Sven Drühl and Christoph Tannert.

It has been a little over a year since BERLIN.STATUS [1], a period in which a lot happens in Berlin.
A boom on the art and creative scenes and gentrification are two aspects of this structural
change that are putting the German capital under tremendous pressure; slowly, they are
bringing in their wake a reconsideration of strategic land use and housing policy.

Berlin is still a dream destination for young artist nomads from all over the world. There is a huge potential of artistic sensitivity in the city, but most of these creative individuals can do no more than keep their heads above water in an extremely precarious situation. At the same time, Berlin is being inundated by tourists. Rents rise and go on rising. The same is true of radicalism.
