The 48 Stunden Neukölln 2021 festival theme is Air (Luft). Air surrounds us and permeates us. It is invisible and omnipresent. Without it, we cannot live. It is there from our first scream to our last breath.
INTO THE SMOG is a large scale, site specific installation consisting of ink on paper and fiber. Paper airplanes lined with text collected from various sources highlight statistics on global air pollution. The carrier of this commentary is often associated with light-hearted, frivolous flights, a direct reflection on human nature's tendency to ignore precarious situations. The installation forecasts a future that fades into an abyss of toxicity unless issues of air pollution are controlled.
48 Stunden Neukölln is an art festival and a platform for Berlin's independent art scene. From June 18 - 20, Neukölln is transformed into an artistic experimental field for 48 hours. 230 projects at over 180 locations present performances, visual art, music and participatory projects.
