Summer is in full swing and Berlin is being very Berlin this week... we are talking mysterious meet at the U-Bahn station and follow the arrows kind of Berlin. And if that is not romantic enough we also have music for unfinished Airports. Let's get down to it!
WEDNESDAY June 19
21h- 23h Rewilding the Memory - Event Hosted by +DEDE as part of the Berlin Project Space Festival
Location: Marion-Grafin-Dönhoff -Platz, 10117 Berlin
with Kosei Takasaki, Alessandro Rauschmann, Natalia Korotyaeva, Eric Winkler, Eva Vuillemin
'rewilding' is used in terms of nature as to bring wildlife back to natural spaces taken over by humans. Now, science says, that memory can’t be trusted. The performance series will question what is left of wilderness in our human condition, but also what does our memory and perception of reality says. It can be understood as an evaluation of what this can mean in times where many species are close to extinction. Where do we position ourselves today, trapped in new media devices where we seek a natural earth binding experience? Are we the ones that need to be 'rewilded'? What aspect does our memory play in this process? Under these circumstances, we will propose not to give answers or guidance, but to question. It is not about the right answers, but about the right questions. The participating artists will develop performances with different mediums, by exchanging their thoughts and output in the space to fusion into one experience. It will function as a catalytic converter to activate the surrounding space around the theme of rewilding.

A cello responds to a reading performance.
A mask thinks of Virginia Woolf, shielding every gaze.
Sculptural seating objects that could hurt you from their other side.
Linear drawings that tell stories of longing to be loved
and fleeing into another world.
Watching the three of us, only a small detail distinguishes us from you.
FRIDAY June 21
Aleksei Taruts, Samara, 2019 - Text on the plate "live as you live"
19h @Display ALEKSEI TARUTS: NOT ENOUGH TO REGRET- Curated by Ksenia Jakobson
Not Enough to Regret is an event offering a series of three performative acts, unfolding within a speculative multiverse. Questions of historical memory and its permeation into daily affects; side effects of technology of instant communication; modes of optimised and disintegrated presence, accelerated by platform capitalism, thread through this piece, as in many recent works of Aleksei Taruts. Each day, delegated actors will re-activate Display as the symbolic space for reflection.

with Johannes Grau & Bernardo Arias Porras, Eric Keil, Grazyna Roguski, Pinkcloud.dk
Kap Stralau is a wet and slippy experience right next to the bank of Spree River in an ancient amphitheatre: There are boats, there are flares, there is fish, there are water and dust, and there is a spatial concept created by Storage Capacité in cooperation with the design collective Pink Cloud. This is the place and the time to start a unique transmedial and operalike-enactment by the lyrical, performative and musical positions of the artists Eric Keil, Grażyna Roguski and Johannes Grau.
Storage Capacité is a gallery concept which hails to the Espace Trouvé. Realising site-specific On/Off-exhibitions, intimate and strict focused. Their claim is to establish a link between an international profile and a non-bound artist-run environment.
