Several months ago, Nina Katchadourian enrolled in the “German Integration” course at Volkshochschule Mitte and, along with her fellow classmates from around the world, began the struggle to master the grammatical complexities of the German language. One of the fundamental challenges is learning how to use the gendered definite articles der, die, and das correctly. To a beginning German student, the world quickly transforms into a landscape of objects...

Pub Crawl will be a one-day event, during which Farbvision will host three separate artist-run bars situated within a single room. Each bar will have a distinct identity, conceived of as an artwork in itself. The aim is to explore how collaborative practices work – in that they can be simultaneously cooperative and combative. All three artists will work on this project together but ultimately each will offer a different experience. This project is...

SCOTTY will present Resting Place, a new site-specific installation by Canadian artist Heather Nicol.
The gallery will be transformed into an ambient listening zone where visitors are invited to relax on soft surfaces and experience a cascade of voices emanating from multiple overhead speakers.
The original audio-score is constructed of dozens of lullabies from many nations, selected from the personal histories of each singer. Layered and overlapping, the...

Erik Niedling Burial of the white man Courtesy of the artist
The Future of Art: A Camp – Or: How to Bury the White Man? continues Erik Niedling’s A Pyramid for Me, a 2014 exhibition at Haus am Lützowplatz (HaL). Niedling’s project, now ongoing for a total of seven years, is about the attempt to build Pyramid Mountain, a concept developed by author Ingo Niermann and then transferred to Erik Niedling. It is an at least 200-meters-tall pyramid that will be carved out of a mountain and then buried under the excavated...

West Berlin in the 1980s, here at Oranienstraße, Kreuzberg. Photo/ copyright and courtesy: Michael Hughes, Berlin
"Keine Atempause, Geschichte wird gemacht, es geht voran" singen die Fehlfarben Anfang der 1980er Jahre, vielleicht auch mit ironischem Seitenblick auf das 'Weiter, Höher und Schneller' des stetig voranschreitenden Sozialismus hinter der Mauer (in der DDR). Egal wieviel Hellsichtigkeit man der Band, die ohne es zu wollen die Hymne der West-Berliner Hausbesetzer schrieb, bescheinigen will - am Ende der Dekade sind alle auch am Ende der Geschichte angelangt...

A public diary not only captures experiences, it often encourages its author to make his or her life more successful. Just as millions of people today document their lives more or less realistically in social networks to create an optimized version of themselves, Erik Niedling shows his attempts to advance Pyramid Mountain’s realization in a regular video diary as a way of spurring himself on and exploring the framework conditions through conversations...

Water washes away the humus. Author Tom Albrecht
Artists show their works to: The outer earth layer of our planet is sealed by asphalt and concrete, damaged by soil erosion. The humus is washed away by industrial agriculture. Synthetic fertilizer is a drug for the soil. Soil loses the ability to retain water, the filter function, the diversity of life. That’s the ground we live on. This is The Soil we live of.
