[Translate to Deutsch:] Ben Nathan and Matthew Robinson // Baden Project Berlin

[Translate to Deutsch:] Openhaus March will showcase the seventh collaborative work by the artists Matthew Robinson and Ben Nathan. Established October 2017, Baden Projekt Berlin examines the ritual of open water bathing in the lakes in Berlin. Guests will experience the morning routine of regulars at Flughafensee, a lake that borders the airport at Tegel, and what is it that compels them to take the plunge every morning, even in sub zero conditions.



[Translate to Deutsch:] Hannah Jickling and Helen Reed

[Translate to Deutsch:] Following on from their work on sour sweets and chocolates, Hannah Jicking and Helen Reed are turning their attention now to chewing gum. Guests will be invited to sample gum, paying particular attention to cohesion, texture, flavour impact, ‘tack to teeth’ and cud size. Hannah and Helen have been artists in residence at a school in Vancouver, Canada, taking the opportunity to investigate and appreciate the ways in which children experience and interact with the world and its many comestibles.


[Translate to Deutsch:] Jordan Cook

[Translate to Deutsch:] Jordan Cook's research aims to dismantle everyday ways of navigating through the city. He sets himself tasks that work to disorientate the process of exploring a new city, using drawing and mapping tools to document these journeys. He has been turning his findings into a book so as to be able to take us along with him on his urban forays. Jordan hopes to encourage an environment for sharing and critical conversation in opening up his studio to exhibit works in progress.

[Translate to Deutsch:] Jocelyn Robert

[Translate to Deutsch:] Jocelyn was with us last year as well, undertaking a photography project that started from a shared memory of images widely available through search engines like Google. He completed a number of portraits and photographs of objects but failed when it came to taking pictures of the city. He hopes to explain to us his thinking about why this happened and what he has done with it in a series of intimate presentations in his studio.

[Translate to Deutsch:] Olga Labovkina

[Translate to Deutsch:] Olga Labovkina will treat us to the dance performance, Critical Distance. In it, she will share with us her methods of working with the body and some initial findings from her research into boundaries. Post performance she will facilitate a discussion, where audience members are invited to give feedback, ask questions and so on. 


[Translate to Deutsch:] Lila Athanasiadou

[Translate to Deutsch:] Lila Athanasiadou criticises private-public partnerships (PPPs) and the ways in which exponential financial growth overcodes all other modes of value projection, staging a series of humourous interventions in which everyday acts of sharing are dutifully accounted for, datafied and monetised. See the results of her sharing experiments while here at ZK/U, translated into the increasingly corporatised language and aesthetic of public policy.

[Translate to Deutsch:] Lydia Karagiannaki

[Translate to Deutsch:] Lydia Karagiannaki, moving into her new studio at the beginning of the month – the generically named, ‘Studio 8’ – was struck by the emptiness of the space, the white walls, the black floor. At the same time, she was aware of how others before her had made the space into a home, perhaps for six months or more. She has contacted former residents of her studio in hoping to construct a ‘meta space’ or archive of previous spatial configurations, experiences and interactions. Ultimately, she’s interested in the ways in which spaces are appropriated by their ‘owners’ in being made into homes.
