settlemen project for Kleiner Grasbrook, Hamburg 2009-2011
With the fall of the customs border the district Kleiner Grasbrook will be opened for settlement. We make a clean sweep and start from scratch. As soon as room is made, the claims will be distributed. The land will be parceled out in small segments and given away for free to potential settlers. As a distribution method a model from North America's history will be reenacted: the land run.
A date is set, the settlers assemble at the starting line, the start gun sounds and the race begins. Whoever arrives first at the desired claim, stakes it with a flag, has it registered and can build on it according to his or her needs and means.
