About

The exhibition " Alltag" ("Everyday Life") brings art to the neighborhood and takes place in the multi-generation house in Gneisenaustraße. The multi-generation house is a local community meeting place and offers space for exchange and networking in Kreuzberg 61 and adjacent neighborhoods.

The participating artists deal with everyday life in different ways. Topics such as cooking and eating or one's own surroundings flow into the art production. The artists also use everyday materials in their practice. Cornelia Heidepriem draws food packaging, Christian Wollert recreates furniture from his home out of papier-mâché, Eva Seufert builds installations and objects out of an old umbrella, newspaper and fabric, Shara Vasylenko paints paravents and records.


Mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion in the art world have many different reasons. Artists affected by poverty and artists with disabilities often remain among themselves in exhibition contexts, and their works are rarely seen in established art institutions. Thus, this exhibition questions the established art business: Who decides which artists are exhibited? Who sets quality standards for artworks?


Mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion also exist with regard to the audience: many people do not feel welcome in art museums. Therefore, the exhibition takes place in an accessible place. " Alltag" is thus an exhibition for the neighborhood, for people interested in art and for everyone else.
