a Climate of Trust
a Climate of Trust is Sylvain Baumann’s first exhibition project in Berlin. In his project the artist is specifically interested in the idea that we currently live in what he calls a Climate of Trust. Baumann claims that in the more and more complex, multi-layered and mediated world of today, it is no longer possible to rely on our comprehension and reason as the basis for decision making. Baumann explores how contemporary architecture, design strategies...

Sharona Tevet - Emigrate / Immigrate
Unlike in English or German, Hebrew lacks a clear distinction between the incoming and outgoing connotations of the word ‘migration’ – as in emigration and immigration – with the word ‘hagira’ (הגירה) used to designate both. In Israeli society and culture, however, the tension between these two opposing directions remains a permanent presence that is felt everywhere. Israelis see themselves as constant migrants, deemed to move between lands and cultures...

Ursula Nistrup's project for die raum is a sound installation based on her research into the magical musical pillars of the Vittala temple in the Southern part of India. Nistrup's profound interest in sound and resonating materials will not only transform the 5m2 of die raum – but the entire building in Oderbergerstr. – into an oscillating musical instrument.

Rimini Protokoll, World Climate Change Conference, 2014. Deutsches SchauSpielHaus, Hamburg © Benno Tobler
Founded in 2002, the collective Rimini Protokoll has developed their very own branch of experimental theater, documentary performance, film, installations, and actions. Based at the theater HAU Hebbel am Ufer in Berlin, around the corner from PRAXES, yet touring extensively around the world, the group continuously test and augment audience relations.

Alexej Meschtschanow - Two thousand profiles at KLEMM's
An exhibition with works by Alexej Meschtschanow.
Changing the present into future has never been taken so granted like today. One physically transcends into a science fiction novel with the only difference that we are not yet forced to wear these silver phosphorescing full-body overalls. The so-called revolutions happen rather in a non-political zone. The disconnected virtual space that had been until recently the realm of sporadic thinkers, philosophers...

Bringing together four artists who have consistently anchored their practice to the critical revise of the tropes of modernism as a cultural stratification vital for the present social and artistic context, this exhibition reexamines the possibilities of visual discourses to become platforms for small shifts of perception of a reality defined by an equivocal hyper-transparency and ubiquity. Through a variety of media (from painting to sculpture and video...

Martin Eder in his recent works has been referring to the growing influence of martial picture material and fantasy series within the media. The subject of bellicose women in battle is omnipresent: In the flood of latest images of catastrophes and war, female figures recur constantly – as soldiers, as desperate mothers protecting their children or their village in border regions of the Middle East with weapons, or at another front at the Maidan fighting...

© FRANZ JOHN "Battery Wagner" Military Eyes, 1996. Camera obscura, light on concrete.
In Military Eyes Franz John used the special perspectival situation of abandoned military bunkers located above San Francisco Bay. To get the desired images, he reduced the size of the observation slits of the cave-like structures, until it became a camera obscura which projected the »military point of view« directly onto the concrete walls of the bunkers. By using a camera at long exposure time these moving images were »engraved« on photographic emulsion...
