“DOOM SPA CAMPUS Piazza Virtuale - Piazza Fisicale focuses on the Ernst-Reuter-Platz as a public square in the west of Berlin. We are looking to the 1990s and bridging the gap between issues of physical and digital public space. Common to both of these spatial categories is that they are monitored and that increasingly it is purely symbolic processes of design and participation which take place there. The private real estate and commercial holding company SIGNA currently present themselves as a private city developer on Kurfürstendamm, simulating the institution of public exhibition and public involvement with a “Point of Participation” (POP). At the same time, almost all internet platforms are privately owned but are largely represented and understood as public space. Identity politics as well could be understood as Piazza Politics, especially in an art world that embraces the logic of digital spaces. DOOM SPA CAMPUS is the last event in the pavilion on the Ernst-Reuter-Platz, but not the last of this series at the most beautiful “Knie” (knee) – in the city.“
