Read about Lara Luna Bartley’s RASTER : BETON residency with Folke Kobberling, funded with support from an a-n travel bursary.
RASTER : BETON – which means CONCRETE : GRID – is an international multidisciplinary arts festival, being held to reflect on the architecture of large housing estates and city planning of the post-war modernist movement. The residency will take place in Grünau, the largest prefabricated housing estate in Leipzig, and the aim is to develop a site-specific and participatory work, which shall be realised in the public space and through interaction with local residents.
Folke Köbberling is a Berlin based artist, and lecturer whose structural interventions present an ’aesthetic of resistance’ to the disappearance of public space. Often in collaboration with her partner Martin Kaltwasser, they build fantastic temporary shelters, structures and sculptures from reclaimed materials.
