The installation aims to establish a certain "space turn-around", based on the urban context and volume of the venue. The artworks between sculpture and architectural arrangement explore the space of the gallery - in particular the two existing levels and the small staircase, which connects them. The installation focuses on the opportunity to explore the environment, by changing the usual perspective.
The exhibition is part of the new "Architecture + Art Weekend" (June 30 + July 1, 2018), which refers to the weekend of "Tag der Architektur / Architecture Day" (23. + 24. June 2018) of the Berlin Chamber of Architects and the last weekend of the festival "Make City" (14. June - 1. July 2018) with the topic "Berlin Remixing". The different formats focus on architecture, the environment, remixing existing models of thinking and looking for contemporary solutions.
The "Architecture + Art Weekend" is an independent non-profit event that takes place for the first time in summer 2018 in Berlin. Institutions, galleries and project spaces that deal with architecture and art in their programs open their doors. The event combines site-specific installations and exhibitions taking place this weekend in Berlin. The aim is to give a first overview of the different ways to exhibit and explore the interaction between architecture and art. The invited venues show exhibitions that integrate with this year's theme "Berlin Remixing" and let artistic positions be experienced in historical locations around Berlin.
Current information about the participants can be found on the website: https://architecture-art-weekend.com/
Special: curated walks through the exhibition venues in Berlin-Mitte will be offered by BertaBerlin / walk this way.

"Regarding the relationship between artists and city-makers, the public and private place is a difficult common ground, strewn with misunderstandings. We wish to interlock these close disciplines and offer playground for discussion." Pascal Brateau in 2017.
