Projekt Weißensee – a floating white surface with an outboard motor and a boat permit for Berlin’s waterways – transforms the idea of an urban free space into a concrete space. An area and a vehicle in one, it offers in several senses an opportunity for situational-artistic spatial research. In its aesthetics, the surface of the raft establishes a direct link to a white surface, similar to that of a white sheet of paper, a white canvas, a projection...

Geoffrey Farmer, Boneyards, 2013 (detail) Photo: Jean Vong Courtesy the artist and Casey Kaplan, New York.
Using the media of photography, video, sculpture, drawing, and installation, Geoffrey Farmer explores the question of how perception is defined by the specific realm that we see and how everything visual becomes a prop and an agent of memory. In his scenic-narrative installations, objects, and visual conglomerates, Farmer often blurs fiction and (temporary) reality as well as diverging moments of space-time and dimensions. He uses the film and...

Retrospective Miet Warlop
Miet Warlop enchants the audience in her performances with living sculptures, animated objects and chemical reactions that continuously erupt. ” Fruits of Labor”  represents a mixture of performance, concert and visual art, a revue of songs and dances around a constantly transforming, awkwardly oversized white cube. The audience is plunged into a glowing movement of light, colours, sounds, emotions, at some point the whole space...

Collective performance.
With this action of the Allianz (bedrohter) Berliner Atelierhäuser (A(b)BA) in collaboration with ZK/U, artists and those who share their concerns point out the spatial needs of Berlin’s cultural infrastructure. Against the backdrop of the increasing “eventification” of our cities, the convoy consists of re-functioned popular tourist infrastructure: a rolling bike bar becomes a “discourse bike,” where debates on urban policy are...

Black Hyperbox started as a frame for performance and text, based on the alienation between practice and conceptualization. Artworks, mostly performances, emerged from its process. They are circulating sometimes independently, sometimes together. Black Hyperbox is also a book that holds incompatible conceptual zones and spatiotemporalities together.
On the 28th of September, Black Hyperbox will have a short apparition in the form of 4 performances:

Ed Atkins - Old Food
Ed Atkins is one of the most distinctive representatives of a generation of artists explicitly responding to digital media’s ever-increasing ubiquity. He creates worlds of crazed artificiality and desperate realism. His computer-generated films feature shabby, lonely protagonists, represented with disarming and marked fidelity. His animations overtly demonstrate their digital constitution – their near-total artifice – even as they simultaneously strive...

Artist Names:  Veronika Bökelmann & Moran Sanderovich and Darling Fitch
Both works in this event deal with close relationships. They place the protagonist in front of a subject, be it a partner, a family member or oneself.The attempt is not necessarily to create an utopian ideal of functioning or “successful” relationship but rather to explore the questions arising from the different layers of these encounters.
