Public space is currently under siege: pressure to consume, growing
surveillance, and ever increasing motor traffic threaten to change the
appearance of our cities in a fundamental way. The two artists Folke
Köbberling and Martin Kaltwasser have been working on their concept of
artistic and aesthetic opposition to these developments since 1998. They
suggest alternatives to the consumerist ideology—structural interventions,
artistic statements, actions, and theories. The artists use streets,
squares, bridges, parks, and interiors as areas in which to operate. The
materials used always originate from existing “urban resources”: throw- or
giveaway objects and even garbage. Each of their works is therefore founded
on communicative and social aspects. At the same time, we are stimulated to
emulate, disseminate, and multiply their strategies, since they can be
realised with the simplest of materials.
