An Archaeology of the Coming 

Alexander Sowa

05.08. – 16.09.2023

Now, in review, the two videos are plays on thoughts of “relativity” and a confusion of scales. At the time, I was annoyed by the ever present “working with space”, since everything – including art – always indirectly has to do with some kind of space. The phenomenological abbreviation of space as a place of… Continue reading An Archaeology of the Coming

The colours line up, overlap and… Continue reading Coreopsis c(h)amp

Symposion

Dirk Reimes

12.11.2022 - 07.01.2023

At the original Greek symposion, there was a lot of boozing. But not only that: there was eating, dancing, singing, philosophising. People enjoyed physical and intellectual delights, in and as a community. However, this also reflected an extremely patriarchal society: only free citizens – that is men – were allowed to take part. Women (and… Continue reading Symposion

Going Tinder Fungal

Going Tinder Fungal presents works from artistic research on the tinder fungus (lat. Fomes fomentarius), which concedes the non-human world of fungi its own perspective. Art and nature no longer form a hierarchical dichotomy, but intra-act and entangle here in terms of form and content, and animate each other. The focus is on the tree sponge itself,… Continue reading Going Tinder Fungal

Hunters and Gatherers

Valentino Berndt

28.05. - 25.06.2022

With the piece Hunters and Gatherers, the use of new technologies in hunting and collecting food is made the subject of attention. Cybernetics (Greek: κυβερνητικός kybernetikos, “control-manly”) plays a central role here, because the tools used, VR goggles and the drone controlled over them, show the communication between man and machine in a pictorial way. It… Continue reading Hunters and Gatherers

are you profitable

Florian Model

14.01. – 12.03.2022

With the installation „are you profitable?“ by Florian Model the artist asks major questions regarding human labor and therefore live as individuals in a capitalist society. It feels like an ironic, fatalistic and sad comment on valuation of Human Resources and how individuals evaluate their own resources themselves. He simply uses a device known from advertising, the stock market and road traffic to provide his message.

Lamentations

Alicja Wysocka

11.12.2021 – 12.02.2022

She had a smile made with a marker
my mum cut her out
and her hands did attach
and her belly filled with rugs

I was a bit afraid of her
she had white sheet face because she was Lady Winter
so she was bad
white cold sheet dress

I don‘t remember but
They went by the river
They set her on fire and threw her into the river
Her head roll off the stick

White sheet became brown
Paper hands dissolved in the water
Outspread
Did they scream for help?

Here Morana was
fertility and harvest goddess back in the days
of the cycle of rebirth and death
What did they do to her?

Oh Morana, poor Morana
Oh Morana, poor Morana
we will undrown you
we anoint you

Oh Morana, poor Morana
Oh Morana, poor Morana
we will undrown you
we anoint you

Wundertüte

Johannes Hugo Stoll

13.11.2021 – 15.01.2022

With the installation Wundertüte, Johannes Hugo Stoll shows the results of his collaboration with his father. The project began when his father asked his son if he would make a death mask of him. He agreed on the condition that both of them would make masks of each other. As a result, two bronze casts were created with the title Bronze Wrapped Bubble. The cooperation led to further works in different media: an audio recording of the two singing in the shower and four video works. The latter use different stylistic means, partly abstract and partly documentary, to tell of the father-son relationship and the process of developing a joint work of art.

Unsteady Consistency

Alba García i Allué

16.10. – 11.12.2021

Once the skin of the apple has been scratched, oxidation processes are triggered by contact with the oxygen in the air. The smell of fermentation attracts destructors and the apple soon loses its shape. Life always demands interaction, and this presupposes the instability and changeability of bodies. In the same way, one’s self-image is formed through communication with others or it dissolves. The senses, too, need exchange; consequently, convictions falter and evaporate, like matter.
