Our freshly assembled Tips take you through some of the most interesting art exhibitions and events in Berlin. See what's really worth seeing in the following weeks.
19.00 Falkenrot Prize 2018 + “Out of Touch / Out of Time” @ Künstlerhaus Bethanien
WHY: Künstlerhaus Bethanien presents an exhibition of the Falkenrot Prize 2018 winner, Jana Gunstheimer. Her artistic practice exploits our world as an endless reservoir of undiscovered possibilities, tracking down its hidden and mysterious aspects. Concurrently, the gallery will host the show “Out of Touch / Out of Time”, which brings together two positions in painting – Aneta Kajzer’s and Manuel Stehli’s.
Künstlerhaus Bethanien / Kottbusser Str. 10, 10999 Berlin, U Kottbusser Tor / open through 25.03 / more info
18.00 "The Other Half" @ Magic Beans
WHY: “The Other Half” shows the work of three female painters in their thirties – Lia Kazakou, Rebekka Löffler & Gina Malek. Their work alludes to an invisible counterpart, an other half that is suggested but not defined. Thus the works ask for completion in the eye and imagination of the beholder. The artists work in different styles, yet they share an interest in the play of light, shadow, and transparency of colors.

17.00 Yvon Chabrowski – “Cassandra / Movement Patterns” @ Dorothée Nilsson Gallery
WHY: In the frame of the ongoing exhibition “Faces and Movements” by Yvon Chabrowski, Dorothée Nilsson Gallery presents Chabrowski’s live performance “Cassandra/Movement Patterns”. For her current series of works, the artist (born in East Berlin) dealt with the functioning of three surveillance and recognition systems designed to recognise and evaluate faces, movements or feelings.

18.00 Ornella Fieres – “The Recurring Frequency of a Fading Moment” @ Sexauer Gallery
WHY: The work of Ornella Fieres explores boundaries and transitions between the digital and analogue space. She develops different photographic, video, and sound techniques that forcefully juxtapose and merge, not only analogue and digital technologies, but also diverse sources of light and moments in time. Interferences cast rainbow patterns over black and white images, pixels merge with film grain, found footage is altered with an algorithm, whilst video works explore and transform the visual and audible representation of space recordings.
Sexauer Gallery / Streustr. 90, 13086 Berlin, Tram 12 & M13 Friesickestr. / open through 14.04 / more info
19.00 “Writing While Walking” @ Scotty
WHY: The joint exhibition by Mette Kit Jensen and C.Y. Frostholm is a dialogue between ways of reading and writing the city. From opposite corners of Europe, the two Danish visual artists are approaching public space sideways and flaneuring. While Jensen is meeting her surroundings spatially and performatively, Frostholm‘s approach is often via books and pictures. Both proceed step by step, with an eye for the absurd and the serendipity of the city space.
Scotty / Oranienstr. 46, 10999 Berlin , U Moritzplatz / open through 14.04 / more info
19.00 "Body Talk" @ Circle 1
WHY: The group exhibition “Body Talk” aims at setting up a brief historiography of the body as it is perceived, represented, and manifested by Israeli artists from the 1950s until today.
