Moritzplarz – "Emotional Blackmail"

"2017, the real estate firm Pandion acquired sizable plots of land near Moritzplatz. The pending high-end development marks a tipping point that will ostensibly redefine the neighborhood’s identity. Large-scale displacement, in this case, would be a matter of time. Numerous cultural institutions, including KW, engaged in a temporary cultural usage of Pandion’s new venues. But for once, the collaboration sparked an appetite within the institution to take responsibility for its artistic footprint. “Emotional Blackmail”, the billboards and street posters by artist Larissa Fassler, are part of a series of research and artist commissions that have just come to bear" – Tirdad Zolghadr
