The long-standing Art in the Underground competition – an international call for artistic interventions on the Berlin Underground network – goes to the periphery. The project surfaces along the U5 line on Hellersdorf’s housing estates and poses the question: “What is outside?”. The question is provocative, because not only can “outside” be seen as being spatial, as the edge of the city or periphery, but it can also be seen as reflecting a process of division in society, as those who still belong and those who do not. The publication connects the project group’s research with a presentation of the art works realised along the U5. Additional background texts and photographic observations provide a new perspective on large housing estates and the “outside city”.
