“We decide how we reside” is a project by Haus der Kulturen der Welt
Project Coordinator: Leila Haghighat

“We decide how we reside” invites artists, architects and residents from Berlin, Istanbul, and Marseilles to develop images and concepts for self-determined dwelling. The project was developed by HKW´s Education department in the framework of the interdisciplinary program “Wohnungsfrage” seeking to stimulate a practical and likewise radical discourse on housing by initiating collaborations among international and local players in the fields of architecture, urban planning, politics, arts, science and activism.

The project participants – the Kotti-Shop (Berlin), PASAJ (Istanbul), and La Folie Kilomètre (Marseilles) – are embedded in sociopolitical flashpoints of their respective cities and share a participatory methodology which understands knowledge production as a social process.

In cooperation with Lieux Publics
