Große Bergstraße in the Hamburger district of Altona: the first pedestrian zone in Germany and the recurring playground for the ideas and visions of town planners and investors. Once envisioned as a boulevard with exclusive shops, the street went into decline and artists occupied the empty shops. Since its arrival in mid-2014, the inner-city branch of IKEA was designed to modernize and spruce up Große Bergstraße and encourage new ideas. The film accompanies the building of the furniture emporium from the ground-breaking ceremony up to its opening and asks locals, activists, shopkeepers and artists what has now changed with this gigantic project. Kurze Zukunft portrays a street between demolition and reawakening – and looks back at the failed attempts at upgrading of the past.
