New Exhibition at Campbell Works
World Without End – Scotty Enterprises
23rd January 2015 – 8th February 2015
Presented as part of the curatorial collaboration Subterranean Futures, between Berlin based gallery / artist collective Scotty Enterprises and Campbell Works, eleven of the Scotty members will present new work developed in direct response to the themes and issues raised by the narrative of Subterranean Futures – Living between dystopia and utopia.
Berlin and London, two capitals caught up in an endless process of gentrification. As the prosperity of a city rises and falls over the decades so too does the daily experience of those who inhabit it. These two cities are at very different stages in this perpetual cycle with Berliners “only” facing rising rents while London is being turned into a kind of Disneyland for investors who have no intention of ever living there. Could this be the future for other European cities, or indeed other global cities? or is the economic growth of one capital at the cost of others?
