Arts of the Working Class (DE)
Issue No. 120, 2021

Works featured accompanying texts from 2038 - The New Serenity.

“This is how we look as a global community: Arts of the Working Class launches its two-sided cover for the first iteration of 2038, the German pavilion’s curatorial project for the Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy. The project builds a bridge between today and days to come, by extending the dialogue outside of the institutional context. Staying faithful to its own polyglot nature, AWC seeks to reveal the blindspots of socio-political transformations we currently experience by rehearsing a possible future.

The focus points of 2038 - discussions around relational architecting, property, collective governance, planetary rights, material resources, circular economy, technology, culture - explains the last decades as an overcome crisis of incalculable dimensions, transforming into a long expected systemic change, welcoming “The New Serenity”. Architecture as discipline is thus experienced within this issue as a polyphonic spree, decoding social relations, reconnecting with eco-systems, enacting disownership, redefining growth“
