Public space is under siege: pressure to consume, growing control and more and more traffic are threatening to change the picture of our cities dramatically. The couple Folke Köbberling and Martin Kaltwasser have been elaborating their idea of an artistic and architectonical aesthetics of resistance against this take-over since 1998.
They confront consumerist ideologies with alternatives: structural intervention, artistic statements, actions and theories. In doing so, the artists make use of streets, squares, bridges, parks and interiors as operational spaces. And the material they use is always obtained from urban resources: things that have been thrown away, garbage, donated things.
