Video about ›Solid Maneuvers‹ by Otobong Nkanga
The solo exhibition ›Otobong Nkanga: There’s No Such Thing as Solid Ground‹ opened last week at Gropius Bau. For Berlin Art Week in September, the artist will present a special programme of live performances of her work ›Diaspore‹. The Nigerian-born performance artist deals, among other things, with the excavation of natural resources, the resulting wounded landscapes and not at last with the relationship between man and soil. On Instagram, the artist talks about her work ›Solid Maneuvers‹, which actually can be seen in the exhibition, tells about the background of its creation, the meaning of materials and how she feels during her performances. A must-watch!

Video series ›C/O Berlin Asks‹
With the video series ›C/O Berlin Asks‹, C/O Berlin has launched an online interview format that lets you immerse into current exhibitions from the comfort of your own home. In approximately 5-minute videos, artists or curators take centre stage: They talk about the role individual motifs play in certain works, why one chooses Polaroid or analogue photography, or where the boundaries between performance and photography can be drawn. Currently available on demand: ›C/O Berlin Asks: Linda McCartney. The Polaroid Diaries‹ with curator Felix Hoffmann and co-curator Sarah Brown of Linda McCartney Archive, ›C/O Berlin Asks. Francesca Woodman. On Being an Angel‹ with curator Kathrin Schönegg and curator Anna Tellgren from Moderna Museet in Stockholm and ›C/O Berlin Asks. Sophie Thun. Extension‹ with curator Kathrin Schönegg and the artist herself. The videos are available in full length on YouTube or in shorter excerpts on Instagram. We are already looking forward to the ›C/O Berlin Asks‹ contributions to the three exhibitions that will open in September during the Berlin Art Week: ›Harald Hauswald. Full of life! Retrospective‹, ›Michael Danner. Migration as Avant-Garde‹ and ›Felicity Hammond. Remains in Development‹. Stay digital!

Tropez at Sommerbad Humboldthain is now online 24 hours a day with its freshly launched ›Tropez TV‹!  A live video broadcasts the interior and exterior of the project space (which is also a kiosk) and allows you to check the weather or mood on site in advance. All events are also streamed live on ›Tropez TV‹, so that you can take part in the events from outside Berlin, or even if there aren’t enough tickets or time for a visit.

›KOW-TV‹ and Podcast
With the digital platform ›KOW-TV‹, the KOW-Galerie in Berlin-Mitte has created an online video space where exhibitions can be viewed on demand, individual works of art can be looked at in short videos or talks can be watched. A special highlight is the ›Unboxing Art‹ series, which makes it possible to get a closer look at some works of art shown in June in the Online Viewing Room at Art Basel 2020 and also to experience their effect in space. Also fresh from the start: the first ›KOW Podcast‹, in which Franz Erhard Walther talks about his work ›Körperformen Weinrot‹, which was also virtually shown at Art Basel 2020.
