"New Harmony" analyzes the crisis and introduces a new scenario by outlining the exodus of the artist house and its relocation as an thought experiment.
The new grounds to be squatted lie in the desolated Spreepark in Plaenterwald. This former amusementpark of the GDR has been closed down in 2003 and is decaying ever since. Here "New Harmony" translocates the spaces of the artist house and arranges them between Fun-Express and Dino-World, Kentucky-Ride and Megaloop, thus marking the beginning of an urban artist colony.
