Tunnel below / Skyjacking above: deconstructing the border

This exhibition addresses the immediate impact of Border Regimes today. Usually excluded narratives are revealed while focusing on specific flashpoints: The growing barriers of Europe, the border between the USA and Mexico and the militarized eco-system of the Jordan River. As the contexts may be different, the issues and agendas of repression are often similar. Can border phenomena be examined as part of a larger, neolibe- ral agenda implemented through a war of images, habituating us to increasingly violent realities? Artists familiar with different border contexts are invited to create and to present work at the nGbK.

silent empire

For the exhibition silent empire, the sound chamber of Funkhaus Berlin, which was hidden from the public for many years, presents itself as an exhibition venue for the first time.
This enigmatic concrete construct, which, in its dusty sparingness and sparse lighting, forms the apparently unadorned counterpart to the magnificent recording halls , and precisely because of this contrast becomes an interesting place to exhibit. Its bizarre atmospheric and architectural quality form an excellent basis for artistic experimentation, which is put into focus by the curators, facing this amazing "negative place.“  Up to 20 artistic positions, from established and emerging artists alike, will be presented. 

Artists: Diana Artus, John Bock, Lotte Meret Effinger, Janine Eggert & Philipp Ricklefs, Sophie Erlund, Jeanno Gaussi, Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel, Okka-Esther Hungerbühler, Sibylle Jazra, Marte Kiessling, Vera Kox, Justin Lieberman, Antonia Low, Regina de Miguel, Lucy Teasdale, Anselm Reyle, Christopher Sage, Madeline Stillwell, Zefrey Throwell, Anke Völk, Marcelina Wellmer, Lauryn Youden, Thomas Zipp, Benjamin Zuber.
