//radical change or upheaval
This is the story of a car park, of a transition, of a conversation between the past, present, and future. Umbruch 2.0 explores the very personal experience of undergoing a ‘quarter-life’ crisis, opening up a vulnerable discourse for how to deal with feelings of anxiety and overstimulation brought on by Neoliberalism. Considering the life cycle of the Welbeck Street car park, a brutalist building currently undergoing demolition, Maria Elges investigates which values are being erased from London’s cityscape, with which are we left behind, and which should form the foundation of our new future?
