New Eelam at Hamburger Bahnhof Museum (Berlin) - Christopher Kulendran Thomas

'New Eelam' is a utopian world concept that engages with the idea of liquid citizenship through propositions for mobile urban living, exploring the future of the home in relation to the entanglement between the development of the city and the development of agriculture. Creating a speculative proposition for the future of mobile urban living, Thomas and his team are developing a series of modular a􏰀quaponic furniture for home farming on a personal scale, which will be premiered at this exhibition.

moving is in every direction. Environments – Installations – Narrative Spaces traces the history of installation art from the 1960s until today with a focus on narrative structures. It opens on March 16th and runs until 17 September.
