Urban Habitat II Berlin 2013

Okk Gallery, present new photography and video documenting the work and music of Kingz of Kiez, a group of up and coming young rappers in Berlin. The iconographic and the everyday collide in the work of London-based fine art photographer Diego Ferrari. For this project Ferrari worked closely with these young people, taking them to iconic public places in Berlin. Together they develop a new expression, which challenges the usual clichés of migration, urban youth and disaffection. Through a playful and questioning approach, these images and video work compel the audience to rethink ideas of the inclusive multicultural city.
