Benjamin Foerster-Baldenius

Benjamin Foerster-Baldenius has been a performing architect since 1999. With raumlaborberlin he contributes new ideas to the culture of the city. He plans, sketches and realises installations and interventions in public space, creates scenographies and dramaturgies for stages, public places and exhibitions, and develops event and teaching formats. Many of the works are created in an art and theatre context with large and small, established and improvised institutions, but they all grow on the compost of the collective. The results are projects such as “working on common ground” for Manifesta 14 in Prishtina, “2465 Enright” for the Pulitzer Foundation in St. Louis and the Floating University in Berlin, where he has been a board member since 2018 and which won the Golden Lion in Venice in 2021. He is currently Professor of Cohabitation and Vice-Rector at the Städelschule in Frankfurt.

As of: January 2024
