Understanding the situation of refugees with the pupils of a Berlin school.
As part of the “Forensis” project and exhibition, directed by Anselm Franke and the architect Eyal Weizman, director of the independent research agency “Forensic Architecture” in London, the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin invited Atelier Limo to design a workshop for a class of secondary school pupils in Berlin based on the issues raised by the exhibition and the methods used.
The pupils chose to explore the issue of refugees living in the German capital. Taking inspiration from the research methods employed by “Forensic Architecture”.
They conducted a survey among the refugees together with Atelier Limo, gathering testimonials and surveying the conditions in which the displaced people were housed.
They then created a series of exhibits and installations of their own that were displayed in Berlin, first in the gallery “Der Kanal” and subsequently in the Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
