GAP CAMP is a project examining gaps and urban scrap spaces to develop different modes of colonisation and temporary use. Since the fall of the Berlin wall the numerous waste lands and gaps owed to the division of the city and the abandonment of the former border strip are an optional space for many types of use beyond commercial exploitation. Districts with precarious living conditions offer a certain degree of protection from revaluation strategies used by the real estate industry and temporarily allow for different modes of appropriation. The Gap Camp is a plug in construction which is colonising an undefined void in the public space. The video is documenting the initial assembly of the GAP CAMP LICHTENBERG in Berlin March 2013.
