What does it mean to live in the city without a place you can call your own? What role can architects have in addressing homelessness? And how can cities become a better home for all? The documentary film What It Takes to Make a Home follows a conversation between architects Michael Maltzan (Los Angeles) and Alexander Hagner (Vienna), who have been grappling with these questions over many years and through various projects.
What It Takes to Make a Home is screening at the feldfünf gallery in Berlin from 21 to 23 October. On 22 October, the film will be followed by a conversation on related questions of housing, and the potential for a responsive and responsible architecture in communities, with the participation of Dr. Anna Steigemann (Assistant Professor, Institute for Architecture, Technische Universität Berlin), Arts of the Working Class (Magazine; Participants, 2019 Worlds of Homelessness project), KARUNA eG (Social cooperative, Berlin), and the Obdachlosenhilfe eV (Aid organization for homelessness, Berlin). The event is curated by Zoë Ritts, Sophie Marthe, and Sinead Petrasek (Questions on Dwelling) and organised with the support of the CCA and the Canadian Embassy in Berlin.

Thursday, 22 October, from 12pm to 6pm
followed by a conversation at 7:30pm (event is fully booked)
