Micro Era. Media Art from China

In Berlin’s Kulturforum the Nationalgalerie will present the group exhibition › Micro Era. Media Art from China‹. The two artists Cao Fei (*1978) and Lu Yang (*1984) asked the artists Fang Di (*1987) and Zhang Peili (*1957) for a dialogue. From documentary film images, and the adapted use of classical film language to the aesthetics of Japanese Anime, the works of this exhibition focus on and explore the relationships between mind, body and technology—with media art. As part of the framework program a curator's tour with Anna-Catharina Gebbers and Victor Wang will take place on 11 SEP 2019 from 4pm to 4.45pm.

Randzone—Anna Fiegen

The modern buildings in Anna Fiegen’s paintings portrait an urban atmosphere, upholding a deceptive appearance. The second glance uplifts the illusiveness and the viewer ascertains the vanished buildings. The artist’s architectures are solitaires, positioned in an isolated no man’s land. The beholder finds himself on the urban fringe. Anna Fiegen uses this uncertainty as a calculated concept, placing common objects in an incongruous scenery she composes a new illusive world with memorability, as the artist finds her motifs preponderantly in Berlin.

Tobias Rehberger—Inspiration is a little town in China—in Paper

In his first solo exhibition in an art institution in Berlin, Tobias Rehberger (*1966) takes complete possession of Haus am Waldsee and changes it spectacularly. For the first time ever, his intensive use of paper becomes visiblea material developed 2000 years ago in China. As usually, his work sets new standards for what art could be. In addition to drawings and watercolours from the early 1990s, diary-like collages and series of large-scale computer prints, the exhibition also features three-dimensional works, in which the sculptor last sold his authorship to termites.

Filip Zorzor presents two works, directly opposite one another. The depth of space of figurative painting from past centuries, which he both admires and overcomes, is paraphrased in the older work. This work is contrasted in the younger work created to mark Trump’s election, which deals with racial segregation and lynching.

The Marc Sinan Company presents a transmedia concert event. Oksus is Marc Sinan’s musical road movie through Uzbekistan; the film is about cultural treasures and their repression or destruction by globalization along the historical River Oxus to the Spree.

Eli Keszler

By mixing his own compositions with various live-recorded sounds at Kottbusser Tor, the composer and percussionist Eli Keszler transports the reality behind and underneath what is captivating our sight on towards the rooftop of a carpark. The site-specific sound performance addresses our auditory and visual perception of social and architectural reality. What happens if our experience of this reality is changed by foregrounding its auditory component rather than its visual one? How is that further related to the human capacity of empathy, participation and care?

THIS MOVIE IS A GIFT—Anja Salomonowitz

»This is a gift is a film about the artist Daniel Spoerri. Actually, it's a film about a perception of Daniel Spoerri: a film almost without Daniel Spoerri, who is mostly portrayed by a child—to say nothing less than that everything in life continues, even if you die in between.« Anja Salomonowitz

On the occasion of the 50th years anniversary of Aldo Tambellini's legendary Black TV, the Italian-American multimedia pioneer presents a new installation realized by re-editing and combining hundreds of hours of his experimental mixed-media works in a site-specific Electromedia environment. Born of a complex, stratified experience, in which the images became a further subject in the critical investigation of the American social and political reality, Black TV generates a pervasive atmosphere of the process-level perception by which we experience the media environment, a monumental operation of aesthetic synthesis of the Intermedia era.

Fabian Knecht presents his installation >Isolation (52°33'44.1"N 14°03'12.8"E)< in Buckow, Märkische Schweiz. He has been working on this series for about three years: He situates white exhibition spaces in the landscape and uses them to frame urban or >natural< scenarios as he finds them, without any further manipulation. The framing makes nature appear surreal and artificial and yet its complexity could never be staged.

KREUZ WEG—Eine Installation von Mia Florentine Weiss

Marking the 100th anniversary of the Treaty of Versailles, the artist Mia Florentine Weiss will transform the main nave of the Nikolaikirche into a universal ›Way of the Cross‹ through a large-scale installation of a walk-in cross. Entering the installation, visitors will encounter a physical experience, one in which their own weaknesses, identities and questions are confronted, pushing them to the limits of perception. The cross will be set upon the model of a hill amassed from topsoil originating in each European state. The artist will collect the soil from every of the 47 European countries. The soil will be integrated into the installation continuously throughout its duration.

Tracks in a Box

For the duration of three weeks, ‘Tracks in a Box’ becomes a center for artistic guided tours: a pop-up gallery, a discursive space and a living archive. It offers a program of audio walks, self-guided explorations, and performative tours by Berlin-based artists. The exhibition explores what an archive and a library of ephemeral, participatory and performative artworks could look like. As a space for collective research, it hosts a series of conversations with artists and thinkers reflecting on the intersection between the ephemeral and the material.

Sven Drühl—Floating Landscapes

«I lift my eyes up unto the mountains. Where does my help come from?» (Psalm 121)—Mountains are places of longing—and places of confrontation. In the Holy Scriptures they are places of epiphany as well as idolatry. The Berlin based artist Sven Drühl focuses on mountains as construction: In his paintings, he cites, samples and comments well known picture-icons, bringing forth utopian landscapes, which trigger our imagination all the more.

VLAD NANCA . The City and the City

The question, how ideology and architecture interrelate, lies at the centre of Romanian artist Vlad Nancă’s work, who is the recipient of the KVOST stipend 2019. Nancă uses architectural structures, reliefs, ornaments and mosaics to establish connections: between present, past and imagined future as well as between the former GDR and his home country. For example, the world-famous >Weltzeituhr< really exists twice—once on Alexanderplatz in Berlin and as a replica in the small town of Falticeni in north-eastern Romania.

WE HAVE A BODY by Yvon Chabrowski

Together with the five performers Renen Itzhaki, Jan Rozman,Kareth Schaffer, Martina Garbelli, Nasheeka Nedsreal, visual artist Yvon Chabrowski restages postures and movement patterns she collected from media images. In the performance, concretely recognizable poses intertwine with new abstract moments. Recapitulating traditional gender roles and stripping them of their essential significance, Chabrowski creates a performative space for thought and action.

Lukas Müller—Eclipse Of The Thumb

Lukas Müller's show >Eclipse Of The Thumb< deals with different works made from varying materials: some of them will incorporate found objects, which create an interrelation between them. Together, they compose an installation which deals with the topic of childhood in a multi-faceted way. For this reason, Müller has spent time with a neighbour’'s boy in Frankfurt and tries to integrate the thoughts of the boy while playing into his works in order to avoid the usual practices of an artist at work. The purpose of this installation is to examine how works of art which were created in a playful manner can still be able to reach a deeper level of thought.

Algorithmic Rituals II—Ancient and Newborn Intelligences

Philosophy and science have dealt with human existence for the most part. Until recently, no one thought that technology could also be an organism. The ecosystem of all invented things.

Jan Wawrzyniak—Forms of Aporia

»What is my idea of a picture, what is it rooted in and how can or must a picture be in order to do justice to this idea? In the course of recent years, the idea of a picture as an open but at the same time  distanced and unstable opposite has grown so that neither the penetration of  the eye from outside makes it submissive, nor does it try to manipulate this exteriority. Such a picture would be an emancipated, responsible and aporetic picture. And that can only be, in turn, the visual assertion, which poses the question, which is located at eyelevel, which is sensitive, aloof and simple, but not completely transparent and not assimilable. « Jan Wawrzyniak in conversation with Ulrike Kregel: Thus far and no further.

Habe Durst wie Harald Juhnke

Andy Kania’s images offer a glimpse into a world of bizarre urban realities.  His photography deals with »from the real abraded pictures« (Barthes) that mirror the conditions of the social outsiders he depicts. Yet, by creating a sense of intimacy in the tension between grotesqueness and beauty, Kania manages to satisfy the voyeuristic reflex and nurture an essential and urgently-needed social empathy.

Pieces of Berlin by Florian Reischauer

With the blog “Pieces of Berlin”, founded in early 2010, Reischauer has found his very own, unique perspective on one of the world’s most interesting and marvelous cities – and, above all, its inhabitants. Approaching the average citizen with a restrained and unagitated attitude, relying on the incorruptible view of his analogue vintage camera, the artist attempts to lay out and capture a profile of Berlin’s everyday life in its entirety, thereby documenting both the current bustle and the constant change of this exciting metropolis. For the viewer, this allows a whole new, different and unexpected angle to look at a city we all seem to know so well.

Albert Serra—Liberté/Installation and Artist Talk

Installation for the film „Liberté" by Albert Serra.

1774, shortly before the French Revolution, somewhere between Potsdam and Berlin. Madame de Dumeval, the Duc de Tesis and the Duc de Wand, libertines expelled from the puritanical court of Louis XVI, seek the support of the legendary Duc de Walchen, German seducer and freethinker, lonely in a country where hypocrisy and false virtue reign. Their mission is to export libertinage, a philosophy of enlightenment founded on the rejection of moral boundaries and authorities, but moreover to find a safe place to pursue their errant
games, where the quest for pleasure no longer obeys laws other than those dictated by unfulfilled desires.
The Villa Schöningen will present an installation of the movie in the garden during the Berlin Art Week.

A New Jerusalem—Michael Takeo Magruder

A New Jerusalem ist eine Virtual-Reality-Installation, die den Geist der prophezeiten Stadt verkörpern soll. Die Installation zeigt eine schöne und beleuchtete Metropole, die auf den architektonischen Beschreibungen der Offenbarung basiert. Sie kann aus zwei Perspektiven erlebt werden. Die Zugrunde liegende Struktur des Neuen Jerusalems wird ausschließlich aus dem Text der Offenbarung generiert. Dieser wird in eine Datencodeform übersetzt und in dem virtuellen Raum wiedergegeben. Die imaginäre Stadtlandschaft wird zudem auch aus aktuellen Google Maps Daten konstruiert. Die Installation regt den Betrachter zum Nachdenken über die gegenwärtige Gesellschaft an, wenn uns die Versprechen von ›einem neuen Himmel und einer neuen Erde‹ (Offb. 21.1) erwarten.
