DOGMA + REALISM WORKING GROUP: COMMUNAL VILLA -- PRODUCTION AND REPRODUCTION IN ARTISTS' HOUSING. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 96 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783959050531 In English.
Publisher's description: How can housing be reformulated in an age when the live/work distinction is increasingly blurred? Artists' collective Realism Working Group and Brussels-based architecture firm Dogma in consultation with Florian Schmidt, studio commissioner of the Kulturwerk bbk berlin, propose new models for live/work housing in this publication challenging traditional designs and transforming underlying economic frameworks. In their housing prototype they articulate relations between solitude and communal interaction and develop alternative socioeconomic structures. Florian Schmidt sheds light on data and statistics of artists' studio space, and architect Robert Burghardt provides insight into the mechanisms of alternative juridical and financial models for housing. Berlin has served as a laboratory for artists, as did New York's Chelsea and London's Shoreditch, since the 1990s when thousands of artists and cultural workers moved to the capital, turning it into a global cultural hotspot and booming housing market.
