Urban Habitat II
Urban Habitat II–BERLIN 2013
Diego Ferrari, Lluis Oliver and Kingz of Kiez.
OKK gallery presents new photography and video documenting the work and music of Kingz of Kiez, a group of up-and-coming young rappers in Berlin. The iconographic and the everyday collide in the work of London-based fine art photographer Diego Ferrari. For this project Ferrari worked closely with these young people, taking them to iconic public places in Berlin. Together they develop a new expression, which challenges the usual clichés of rapper imagery and, by extension, migration, urban youth and disaffection. Through a playful and questioning approach, these images and video work compel the audience to rethink concepts of the inclusive multicultural city.
In partnership with: Puk a Malta - Kingz of Kiez, OKK Gallery Raum 29 and Kiez Kultur Netz – Berlin 2013.
