Orte des Grauens - Final Filming

© Servicekomplizen

A major project, Orte des Grauens [Places of Misery] by the creative collective Servicekomplizen, engages with urban non-places such as car parks, waiting rooms and trams. The artists and service-design experts develop humane ideas and transform dull and loveless locations into service paradises using artistic interventions. For example, they link car parks with current themes of urban mobility, the future of the motor vehicle and the fight for a bicycle friendly city. The Individual Support for Artists and Creative Minds has enabled final filming, cutting and photography to take place, which completes the narrative.
