“KörperBau” is a 30-minute video walk/video performance through Charlottenburg Palace Park in Berlin. The videos are site-specific and reference the body and the urban environment: they overlay landscapes, scroll across building facades, paint over sculptures, outline the history of the neighborhood, pick up on color and shape patterns in the surroundings, and illustrate how urban space becomes a part of our bodies.
