Although we talk about Dadaism, DADA is not an “ism” like all the others. It is not a style whose formal characteristics can be clearly defined. DADA is a symbolic point of reference for new experiments, in the spirit of each time. DADA does not end. DADA...

Undefined buzzing sounds from electrical equipment mingles with meditative chanting, as wounded bodies search for inner peace and healing to survive a digitized, high-speed, urban life.
In this group show, culturally-expanded artists perform an external and internal exchange between cultures and media to make a type of art that speaks to the audiences' everyday experience, and pushes it...
Strijbos shows two kinetic light sculptures - Axon and Homeostase that are the result of a broader research on artificial life and generative composition. Inspired by early cybernetics and the idea of machinic life and machine synesthesia, both artworks comprise a robotic community consisting of multiple equal units in which actuators and sensors are directly...
The information structures of our digital surroundings resemble the inner transmitting systems of nerves and their contacts, the synapses. With the help of messenger substances, neurotransmitters like serotonin pass on information and thereby activate inner systems. In her exhibition Conditions for Neurotransmission [P.O.V.] artist Annabelle Craven-Jones visualizes the mutual effects...
Opening with the performance: das sanfte zartet aus. nein.
A homage by Manfred Peckl
Hysteria reveals itself in the colours and seemingly composed and yet shimmering forms.
Sweet honey ostensively adhered to the painting underneath the strict layout of the image. Contenance!
The material wriggling boldly through the raster, is not smooth and orderly but casually distributed when observed in detail. Only through thorough examination does the distinct handling of the materials reveal itself to make the image...

The figurative paintings have mainly been created in Johannesburg in 2014 during a residence at the Bag Factory Artists´ Studios, but only recently have found their final layer.

With: Birte Bosse
This salon by Berlin-based artist Birte Bosse installs an experimental supper club at Haus am Lützowplatz. The evening addresses the various aspects of the diverse relationship between two workspaces: kitchens and artists-studios. Both are scenes of mysterious activity, workrooms of inspiration and alchemical formulations, places of creative chaos and classificatory thought.

Alagem paints hyperrealistic paintings with a disrupted or fragmented narrative, on large scale canvases that exceed the boundaries of the painting as a window, blending beyond recognition the traditional...
IT IS NO LONGER TO DISCUSS CONTEMPORARY ART
"...the human is no longer central to history - replaced, instead, by networks and systems..."- Lars Bang Larsen
Contemporary Art is at an end. It will continue "parallel" with the wider Culture but will no longer be able to claim any form of pre-eminent status. Contemporary Art is now akin to a meme generator endlessly re-aggregating past images and art forms...

Are we the undecided beholder in Kafka's text „Up in the Gallery“ who distraughtly watches a „lady circus rider in the ring“ and who sinks „into the final march as if into a difficult dream, weeps, without realizing it“? „The end is in the beginning“ is what Beckett writes in his Endgame, „and yet you go on“. Blind Applause, a space-filling...

Was macht das Machen? Kann man können was man will? Wann macht man ein Bild und wann Kunst? Und liegt das Gelingen in der Hand des Künstlers oder im Auge des gelangweilten Betrachters?

One night. 10 lectures each 6 minutes 40 seconds, showing 20 pictures.
moderated by Yvonne Reiners and Tina Sauerländer
There is so much ART. But why is ART so important for our society? Can ART take over social responsibility? How will ART develop in the (near) future? Who will buy ART and why? How can public institutions afford big shows, now that so much money went private in the...

She uses form, materiality and colour to challenge existing paradigms that attribute a constant value to all things. Couples is Tiemann's first solo exhibition in Berlin and centres on the relationship between two elements of different materiality as well as the creative friction generated through their interaction.
