The project

Referring to the unofficial twinnings that reflect Berlin’s current immigrant population instead of the official equivalents of the city, the project explores the city’s long tradition of urban horticulture and reveals ideas of health in the widest sense: as balance and imbalance as well as on a societal and personal level, looking at how people navigate and share resources within a city.

No, it is not the name of a rock band of the 80ies.
“The Migrants” is a collective blog of migrants, for necessity or curiosity, expressing  and confronting one another with precise themes.
We discuss together as individuals and as host country.
We try to face social, political and cultural differences through a cognitive approach and the vision of who has been living “hanging”.
Representing the generations that have to rebuilt the meaning of “home” and interrogate themselves on identity.
A blog as a creative platform, as a meeting point where different expressions and authors living and coming from various cities in the world, come together, proposing ideas and projects to be developed collectively.

We, inside Meridian Urban publication

Meridian I Urban. Curatorial Projects on Health presents five projects by international up-and-coming curators on the subject of “Health.” The projects artistically map the urban space of Berlin, using health-related motifs and identifying relationships between health and the lives of their visitors: they offer opportunities for alternative participation and identification. At various locations in Berlin, which can be regarded as especially interesting, conflict-ridden or significant for a healthy, urban life, they bring to light social, historical and cultural peculiarities.
