Titel:  KULTURGATE/ Tempelhofer Feld Berlin

The Kulturgate is an urban common project that was founded by Ute Jaroß in 2012.

A red container is used to store materials and shows visitors the way to a platform for active leisure, culture and art @ the Tempelhofer Feld in Berlin.

In cooperation with volunteer partners the visitors can participate on regular offers and irregular specials. Everything is done on a voluntary basis

The diverse socio-cultural potential of this place aroused my curiosity and brought me to my research question:

In which way the kulturgate can enable cultural & social exchange? 

Using artistic and ethnographic methods, it was possible to capture how the Kulturgate appropriation of the social space and promotes participation.

My research has shown that Kulturgate is a place of exchange.

The different offers encourage visitors to participate and promote social exchange in a special way.
