Unser Jahresüberblick 2023

Liebe Freund*innen und Unterstützer*innen,
das Jahr 2023 liegt hinter uns, und wir wollen uns an erster Stelle bei unserer Gemeinschaft bedanken, bei allen, die sich engagiert haben und die Veranstaltungen und das Programm ermöglicht haben.
Die Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit und das Moabit Mountain College haben im Jahr 2023 zwei Standorte in Berlin bespielt und weiterentwickelt: Räume in der Beusselstraße 44 in Moabit mit unserem wöchentlichen Programm und das Strandbad Tegelsee/Zentrum für Kultur und Erholung mit einem interdisziplinären Kulturprogramm. Lesungen, Ausstellungen, Präsentationen, Artist-in-Residency, Podcasts und mehr fand im Rahmen des auf zwei Jahre ausgelegten Projektes ARTECO – Artistic Ecologies: New Compasses, Tools and Alliances – statt, in Kooperation mit der Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (Amsterdam) and WHW (Zagreb).
In den Berliner Sommerferien konnten wir auch dieses Jahr wieder die Sommerschule für Kinder und Jugendliche öffnen. Rund 50 Kinder aus der Ukraine haben die Sommertage im Strandbad mit umfangreichen Kunst- und Musikworkshops, Sport- und Badeprogramm verbracht.
Wir bedanken uns bei unseren Partner*innen und Unterstützer*innen für das Vertrauen, die Unterstützung und die schöne Zusammenarbeit!

extended kitchen // Assembling together: Foods, bodies and toughts

by Maddi Fuente Ubani, Cristina Leoni Osion and Lena Pozdnyakova

Part of the Movement Improvisation Group invites you this Friday December 15th from 18.30 to our community dinner!

Extended Kitchen is a space where we acknowledge that every ingredient on our table carries a story, and every meal we share is a political act that shapes our community.
Our discussions extend beyond the kitchen table, intertwining with the flavors on our plates. Extended Kitchen is a communal setting, where we foster relationships that go beyond casual encounters. We talk about the ingredients needed to cultivate connections and create a sense of belonging within our neighborhoods. It’s a melting pot of ideas, and voices that come together to create a tapestry of shared experiences.

DJ-Podcast Studio Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit

We invite you to a journey of young minds as they explore, experiment, and create music in a diversity-sensitive, inclusive, participatory, and intercultural environment.
In the Studio of the Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit, guided by the vocalist and composer Biljana Pais, children embark on an exciting musical adventure. Our method is simple: „Try it out, test it, make mistakes, keep going.“ This philosophy encourages a fearless approach to learning, allowing kids to discover the joy of harmonizing through trial and error.
Digital media takes center stage as a tool in our quest to teach children harmony. Through immersive music workshops, participants learn to discern which chords complement each other and which scales form the foundation for harmonious relationships.
Songs by children from the Studio of the Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit, Kurt-Tucholsky GS and the Moabiter Kinderhof.

Field recording: discovering community through sound and voices


Episode: Neue Neighborhood/Moabit – sounds of the studio and the extended kitchen
Edited by Edoardo Micheli, 2023
extended kitchen episode: Community Dinner with Krishan Rajapakshe
In this sonic journey, we explore the heartbeat of the Studio of Neue Neighborhood/Moabit, capturing a busy Sunday at our free art school, venture into the extended kitchen, a space where the community not only cooks but comes together to engage in lively discussions on sustainability, food politics, but also to create and strengthen friendships.
It’s the soundscapes that connect us, highlighting the beauty of communal living and the power of shared moments. Tune in, and let the music of community resonate in your ears and your heart.

Dignity of Lentils – Community Dinner with Krishan Rajapakshe, Fr., 1.12.2023 at 7pm

The essence of the simple lentil curry (Parripu: in Sinhala) or soup goes beyond its taste; it’s a unifier. Among the noise of socio-politico divisions, it can stand as the bliss of unity, reminding us beyond the lines drawn by political and economic establishments. Those sharing moments reconnect us with our shared memories and desire to emancipate us from the repressive political rhetorics.

„Dignity of Lentils“ extends as a graphic comic zine, a canvas portraying Sri Lanka’s tumultuous economic crisis and the fervent protests that marked 2022. Comic-Zine echoes the resilience of a people, their steadfast spirit, and the enduring dignity found in the simplicity of a lentil-infused meal.

Krishan Rajapakshe (they/them) is an artist and a designer born in Sri Lanka, who made Berlin their HOME for the last 10 years. Their artistic and design practices revolve mainly around drawing, comics, zines and social kitchen, proposing narratives and counter-narratives that emerge from the context of the migration experiences and their communities. Krishan Rajapakshe is also an educator; they are part of the teaching team of *foundationClass since 2020 and have been guest professor and a lecturer at Kunsthochschule Weissensee Berlin since 2021. They are founding member of magazines such as Zick Magazine in Dresden and ColourfulVoices in Berlin. Their approach to collective and collaborative artistic work is a way of making politics/friends which generate their own communing aesthetics.

Erde Workshop / Strandbad Tegelsee / Sa 26. August, 13-15 Uhr / The noise is changing / mit Edoardo Micheli

Erde Workshop with Edoardo Micheli

The noise is changing. How to create an acoustic community. A music workshop on ecoacustics in the shifting soundscape of climate crisis
Saturday, August 26, 1-3pm

Address: Strandbad Tegelsee /Zentrum für Kultur und Erholung
Schwarzer Weg 95, 13505 Berlin
Hosted by: Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit and Moabit Mountain College


The workshop consists of a talk and a listening session on the inhabitation of ecosystems by acoustic communities that are constantly listening to each other, the complexity of the resulting soundscape, decolonial ecologies and the climate crisis. Also on hybrid (human and non-human) communities and some ideas on how to listen to all this.

Edoardo Micheli is a composer, performer and music teacher. He was born in a small village in the Italian Alps, nearby Lake Garda and has studied Music Composition and Philosophy in Verona, Venice and Würzburg. He has written and produced instrumental music for various line-ups (from solo instruments to ensembles and orchestra) and electronic music and likes to collaborate with other artists and musicians. He also works as a piano teacher in music schools where he tries to teach a relaxed and natural instrumental technique that combines body awareness and musical sensitivity in a playful way. He is interested in ecology, colonialism, art and community, sampling and remixing, non-human music, and cooking. Edoardo Micheli works and lives in Berlin, Germany.

The participation is free of charge, prior registration is not required.

The Erde-Workshops are led by the members of Moabit Mountain College and invited guests with a focus on artistic practice in connection with ecology and sustainability. Strandbad Tegelsee serves us as a very special open-air laboratory.

Erde-workshops creates an easily accessible offer for the participants: all activities don’t require professional skills, and are open to people of all ages. There is support, discussion and practical work.
All workshops take place at Strandbad Tegelsee, aim to develop this place as a nature resort towards sustainability, and create a practical platform for the knowledge exchange and crafts related to the questions of ecology, sustainability, and healing.

Erde-Workshop is a part of the two-year collaborative project Artistic Ecologies: New Compasses, Tools and Alliances conceived in collaboration with WHW, Zagreb, the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam, and Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit, Berlin.

The program is co-funded by the European Commission’s Creative Europe program and Foundation Between Bridges.

Lesen am See / Strandbad Tegelsee / Fr 18. August um 18 Uhr / with Alungoo Xatan, Dior Thiam, etaïnn zwer, Frances Breden

Lesen am See
Friday,  August 18th at 6pm
Breaking the canon

with Alungoo Xatan, Dior Thiam, etaïnn zwer, Frances Breden

The reading will be held in English and German

Address: Strandbad Tegelsee/Zentrum für Kultur und Erholung
Schwarzer Weg 95, 13505 Berlin
Hosted by: Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit and Moabit Mountain College

The third part of Lesen am See focuses on the canon as a format that narrows our field of vision and simplifies our understanding of the world. The reading group Fran, Alungoo, Dior, and etaïnn have decided to select texts that are diverse not only in terms of form but also thematically. Starting with a text that engages with Marcel Duchamp’s canonical work, „Fountain,“ and proposes its queer interpretation, we will then ponder what constitutes the set of knowledge about the world that is led into the canon, and what consequences it may have for our collective imagination. How do we understand the essential bonds of community, love, and sex? What words do we use, and where do we draw patterns, to describe what we desire or what we fear? Breaking the canon can assist us in this.

In the frame of the cycle Lesen am See we would like to invite diverse reading groups and collectives to share their practices, related to the dialogical nature of text itself as well the community of readers & listeners. The cycle is curated by Agnieszka Kilian.

Lesen am See is a part of the two-year collaborative project Artistic Ecologies: New Compasses, Tools and Alliances conceived in collaboration with WHW, Zagreb, the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam, and Neue Nachbarschaft/Moabit, Berlin.

Alungoo Xatan (she/her) is an interdisciplinary artist, moving mostly between sculpture and installation. Often drawing from her biography, Alungoo intertwines intricate themes with polished aesthetics that play on childhood nostalgia. The familiarity of the symbols and elements act as bridges, inviting the audience to connect with the art on a personal level. Alungoo has been studying at UdK Berlin in Christine Streuli’s class since 2017. Her recent studies in California at CalArts, where she established connections with artists such as Shirley Tse, Harry Dodge, and Sharon Lockhart, among others, furthered her artistic engagement with issues of the Asian diaspora and queer-feminist discourses. She is a recipient of the Ursula Hanke-Foerster Prize for Sculpture (2022) as well as a Fulbright Alumna (2022-23). Alungoo’s works have been shown in houses and institutions such as the Märkisches Museum, Museum Fluxus+, Satellite Galery Nagoya, and Mint Studios in Los Angeles. In addition to her own artistic practice, Alungoo is a founding member of the artists of colour group INTERSPACE, which critiques and counteracts the underrepresentation of artists of colour in the Berlin art scene.

Dior Thiam is a multidisciplinary artist. Throughout broadly different mediums, she explores untold histories, exoticism and the specific historical knowledge held by social and individual bodies. Drawing inspiration from historical events and occurrences, from poetry, prose and personal experiences, her work raises questions around the localities of knowledge as well as memory and remembrance. Through a process-based approach of layering, interweaving, fragmenting, collecting and reassembling, she extracts and re/ arranges seemingly disparate pieces of research to form new frameworks of meaning. Among others, her work has been showcased in a number of international group exhibitions and publications, including two shows at the 14th edition of the Dakar Biennale in Senegal, a group show curated by Bonaventure Soh Beijing Ndikung at Goodman Gallery Johannesburg in South Africa, multiple collaborations with Savvy Contemporary Berlin and a recent show at the Atlanta Museum of African Diaspora in the US.

a writer+artist, part of the queer collextive RER Q, etaïnn zwer (no pronouns/∞) believes in writing as political sweat and builds a discreet practice, cruising the transformative power of the poem as a radically tender technology to make more fuckable worlds come true. etaïnn has performed sung cried in bars squats schools festivals theaters galleries [TN (Brussels), La Bâtie (Geneva), Air de Paris (Romainville), Ausland (Berlin), Rond Point Projects (Marseille)], on the radio, at sex parties. and published in various magazines [Panthère Première, Phylactère, L’Incroyable] and anthologies [«Realitäten» (etece buch, 2022), «Lettres aux jeunes poétesses» (L’Arche, 2021)]. etaïnn first novel BLEU NUIT, BLOUSON ROSE will be published in April 2024 by les éditions du commun.

Frances Breden (she/her) is a curator and artist dedicated to community-based and collective art-making processes in digital and IRL spaces. She is one sixth of the queer-feminist art collective COVEN BERLIN, with whom she has collaborated since arriving in Berlin from Vancouver, Canada in 2014. Frances is a founding member of Sickness Affinity Group, a support group and art collective working on accessibility, disability and illness.
In 2023, Frances is curating the short film screening PRESENTS with RA Walden, which will be available online during Berlin Art Week (13.09.) and screening in person at HAU Berlin (20.10.) Her words have been featured in Radicalising Care (Sternberg Press), Kunstforum #279, Crip Magazine, and Arts of the Working Class.
