Kleine Humboldt Galerie is proud to present Common Ground #3 – Where the Circles Intersect. The exhibition brings together the works of six artists who call different places on the Indian subcontinent their home – or one of many homes.

Tbilisi Chess Palace and Alpine Club, 1980s © G. Chubinashvili National Research Centre for Georgian Art History and Heritage Preservation
"Chess palace" may sound unusual in the Western European context. However, it did not sound special in the Soviet Union, where chess was played in its pioneer palaces, cultural houses and workers' clubs. In a few years after the October Revolution, the young Soviet Union managed to turn a "useless game of the bourgeoisie" into a sensible pastime of the working masses. After the Second World War, when Soviet chess players began to celebrate international...

“Walking backwards” is a poetic image of resistance and a potential form of disruption. Through a shift of attention in the present (suddenly moving in the opposite direction that is expected) we contribute to the production of futures[1]. Art can be thought of as the continual setting up of potential conditions within which the unpredictable might take place.
At the SCOTTY Laboratory Sessions we aim to produce a temporary zone that in the form of an open...
