Gentrification is not a name of lady. Project carried out by the group in 2012 in Charloise’s neighborhood, Rotterdam. It was based on measurements of the percentage of creative class that lives there. The above mentioned neighborhood, as the group explains in the web site, “It receives for years to an artistic community that prospers thanks to facilities of residence for persons of the field of the creativity. His permanency in the neighborhood is supported by the public power, which at the same time controls the economic level of the resident futures, excluding from the area to the lowest classes. Zones of the neighborhood are lived entirely by artists. Nevertheless, the transfer of these spaces has expiry date. When the artists have realized his function of revaluation of the neighborhood the privileges will be eliminated granted to the “creative class” and they themselves will suffer the economic segregation “.
