The people who live and work in a district are shaping it and making it special. The art collective Mentalgassi wanted to know: Who are these people in HafenCity? So, they took a close look at the area, creating video portraits of 33 HafenCity citizens. Their newest piece is 385 meters long and now the longest curated artwork in Northern Germany. It is now building a creative frame around the construction site of the Westfield Hamburg Überseequartier.
