ZK/U BerlinSiemensstr. 27, 10551, Berlin, Germany
OPENHAUS, organised every other month, opens the doors of our residency and gives the public a chance to discover our residents’ artistic projects, discuss and exchange directly with them.
For this edition of the OPENHAUS, sound and video installations invite us on a journey through the personal experiences of our resident artists as well as their relations with both their hometowns and Moabit. Whether through a personalanarchive or audio recordings, the audience will dive into the intimate encounters of our residents with Moabit. Another investigation into this district as an interactional space will reveal connections between two completely different groups of animals: humans and firebugs who share the same resources. Testimonies on contemporary matters of urban transformations and speculations on non-human labor, the use of blockchain technology, and complex relationships between media forms will be expressed through installations and paintings. Finally, questions around the notion of "strong body" in a capitalist society that is based on the demand for performance and productivity will be raised.
Also, Raviv Ganchrow's sound installation "Westhafen Ground-Electric" in the ZK/U basement will be still on display during the event.
