The Watching Eyes at Kottbusser Tor

Eyes on Kreuzberg Zentrum Kottbusser Tor Berlin

For a few weeks now a quite special installation has been gracing the Kreuzberger Zentrum at Kottbusser Tor. Hanging from the balconies of the apartments you can see black and white close-ups of the eyes from the residents of the building. The installation wants to give a face and a voice to the people who live there and who are under threat to be pushed out of their homes due to the usual real-estate nightmare that’s going on in the city. I think it’s a good idea to protest the developments in this way because for those real estate investors often the people are just numbers on paper, their lives and their stories don’t matter to them, mostly because they are invisible to them. But they are real people and it’s about time that all the real estate sharks are faced with the reality of them. They are watching you now!
