Save Event: Die Sammlung Auspacken / Unpacking the Collection

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Last year in December a ceramic collection was dissolved.


After nine months of shaping, firing and glazing, ca. 700 clay works have been released to the many that, each Sunday or just once and by chance, used the opportunity to take part in a free clay workshop. However, on the occasion of the final exhibition, after the dissolution many works and fragments were still laying on plinths and shelves. Forgotten, lost, unrecognized, rejected. Meanwhile the space where all this took place, JWD in Berlin-Hohenschönhausen, doesn’t exist anymore. Till this day the many boxes full of wrapped remnants of the collection have been resting piled up in a corridor of an apartment in Weissensee.

The attendees at Kreuzberg Pavillon are now requested to extract, unwrap, and put in place the remains of this collection.

Whom do these figures and clay chunks belong? Back then this wasn’t an easy issue to solve. The clay pieces should have now sinked even more into oblivion, after spending months in quiet banana boxes. Still re-encounters and reunifications are not excluded.
