Dual Exhibition Berlin Icons and heim@los
Raidar Huber, Ralf Obergfell, Steffi Weiss

The Strassenfeger O12 Gallery reacts to the widespread, rapidly progressing change that’s been underway in Berlin for several years with two exhibitions that serve as snapshots in time:

Berlin Icons is an ‘unheard’ journey of discovery through old Berlin, seen from today’s perspective. These are portraits of the city’s unsung heroes who have been shaping Berlin for decades. They’ve all done their part to make Berlin an exciting, tragic, diverse and tolerant city, attributes that only live on in certain areas today. The exhibition pays homage to this legend.

The project heim@los by Raidar Huber – originally Heimatlos unter Brücken (Homeless Beneath Bridges) – shows the brutal everyday life of rejection homeless people face as they struggle to create a small amount of normality by setting up a temporary place to live. The transformation of a desolate underpass into an organized living space touches us: this is where everyone living indoors can make contact with socially rejected people.
