In 2019 the former East German bureau of statistics, on Berlin’s Alexanderplatz, became the venue for STATISTA, an exploration of artistic prototypes for a new civil society. While temporary takeovers of vacant urban space often leave nothing but gentrification in their wake, the projects under the STATISTA umbrella aimed to leave a lasting legacy of urban renewal for the benefit of all – a statecraft of the future.
