Exhibition „Transit Zone Pavilion“ by class Sound, Art and Technology-poiesis led by Daisuke Ishida, Fakultät Musik, UdK Berlin. The exhibition thematizes and questions transit zones which are multidimensional spaces between origin and destination that is everyday routine travel, oscillate between actual locations, places in time, a state of being and show a range of social and political characteristics.
Transit zones are multidimensional spaces between origin and destination. That is everyday routine travel e.g. from home to work but also between countries. They oscillate between actual locations, places in time, a state of being and show a range of social and political characteristics. Zones of transit are the spatial representation of the human right of freedom of movement (article 13, Universal Declaration of Human Rights), the busy intersections of everyday life routine, between and within Lefebvre’s dialectical system of leisure, private life and work.
Historically Berlin has had a conscious involvement with transit zones, e.g. the sectorization of Berlin after WW2 and later the division of East and West Germany. Recently they have regained negative attention through refugees getting caught within european transit zones with their restrictive and criminalizing characteristics.
The means of transit of private and public transportation experienced great changes since the industrial revolution, from a sensational experience of speed and distance to routine travel for the masses. Each technological advancement lengthened and sped up the daily distances covered. The highly functional and efficient spaces of public transit are contrasted by their idle users within their daily routine.
