February’s Openhaus event draws on the varied interests of our residents, who will be presenting work in a variety of formats. Themes of failure, loss and resistance will be explored through sound installations, photo scrap books and found object collages. Again, we will be witness to the continued collaborative research of our residents into open water bathing in the urban surrounds of Berlin, immersing the viewer in a sound and sensescape that evokes the neighbouring bathing haunt of Ploetzensee.
In another installation we will be privy to view the failed photographs of one of our residents, an act of self exposure that challenges notions of perfection and invites us to consider the value of vulnerability.
Found objects will be utilised in yet another piece, asking the viewer to consider the ways in which the seasons affect our experience of the built environment and access to public space. Workshops will also be held in which participants will be able to annotate a map of Berlin with their own personal routes, tracing emotional lines through the city and eliciting potential blind spots, or otherwise investigate the cultural significance of city and domestic soundscapes.
PLEASE REGISTER FOR WORKSHOP!
