tetrapak ready2capture! HafenCity - an urban space?

ready2capture! by the Hamburg group tetrapak and 12 baltic artists is the attempt to question the official image production of the HafenCity in Hamburg. During the artgenda-biennale 2002 ready2capture! explored the conditions and parameters of the HafenCity through artistic projects, guided bustours, lectures and film-screenings.

Although HafenCity, the „biggest urban development project in Europe“ almost stagnates, it is nevertheless serving as a matrix for the projection of urban and economic visions of an expanding city. HafenCity represents the concept >Metropolis Hamburg - Growing City<, lately proclaimed by the conservative town-government. It incorporates the vision of Hamburg as a prospering, economic centre of Northern Europe. The HafenCity`s media discussion focuses big events like Olympia 2012 and new architectual symbols for the city, for example a concert hall combined with a seawater aquarium. On the other hand, the concentration of public art projects in the HafenCity area – such as the artgenda and therefore tetrapak´s ready2capture! platform - follows the representative logic of the HafenCity itself: The focus turns from an inhabited, real city space to the virtual urbanism of an industrial leftover.

At Club 88, tetrapak reopens its platform half a year after the artgenda. At the same time it is the presentation of the forthcoming publication ready2capture! HafenCity - an urban space?.
