Artists, architects, filmmakers, graphic artists, journalists, and cultural and social scientists have developed more than 60 works for the project. The themes range from the neglect and appropriation of spaces, through changed practices of daily life, survival strategies, and new forms of work, to the development of innovative subcultures and criticism of existing planning cultures.

Maps and diagrams, photo series, installations, video and visual art works are also on view.

The exhibition in Berlin is the first presentation of the initiative/project; the second exhibition will present strategies for action in Summer 2005 in Leipzig.
