OPENHAUS PLUS MAY
open studios, performances, videos, installations, resident talks, publication, sculpture, food, drinks
The next OPENHAUS PLUS, an extended version of the regular public format, takes place in May, offering audiences the opportunity to get to know current projects and explore the processes of ZK/U’s residents.
The Berlin Fact-Finding Committee (“UA”) intends to tie local discourse to global practices brought to ZK/U Berlin by its international artists-in-residence, helping the international community to understand Berlin’s unique challenges. The temporary Fact-Finding Committee presents its findings in a final report and is supplemented by two artistic positions from Berlin during OPENHAUS PLUS.
The third Fact-Finding Committee (UA#03): Solidarity³ explores the connections between art, club culture and resistant structures. The question ‘If under attack - how to react?’ constitutes the framework for their inquiry into the rise of the right, the availability of spaces, and the precariousness of contemporary cultural existence. The theme of solidarity offers a common ground for the projects featured during OPENHAUS PLUS. While one research project highlights the aspect of mutual support amongst artistic communities facing precariousness, another deals with the destruction of social symbols of mobility. A video installation looks at collective efforts of transforming abandoned sites, while private performances scrutinize exclusiveness of luxury property development.
Other artistic projects focus on the flow of time. A performance piece showing the parallelism between time-space and sound-body will be presented alongside a video installation investigating the role of memory in the refractions of conscience, as well as a stop-motion video displaying future scenarios for a dystopian urbanized world. Even an inquiry into the dissemination of contemporary warfare online will be shown as part of this month’s OPENHAUS PLUS.
Don’t miss the opportunity to meet the artists and researchers-in-residence and explore ZK/U’s space and surroundings, to ask questions, to discuss and to exchange ideas about ongoing projects and artistic practices.
