The exhibition is part of Gabu Heindl’s ongoing enquiry into the critical agency of architecture within housing and planning politics. The starting point is a tiny Manifesto for a politics of CARE for housing as a public good and human right and of CARE for land. Heindl clearly identifies the political grounds of such an endeavor – to write a manifesto – as shaky, partial, disputed.
Within a procedural setting, the exhibition gives an insight into the global housing crises with interviews with housing activists in the specific contexts of Vienna, Brno, Nuremberg, London and Vancouver. Heindl puts them in relation to her works, which are based on a specific interest in looking for tomorrow’s strategies within the (un)realized futures in the housing policies of Red Vienna. The growing Housing Manifesto aims to contribute to the struggles for the right to housing and the city.
