EXCHANGE BERLIN features 20 artists/curator-led galleries and projects from around the world for one weekend in Berlin's Kreuzberg district. 

EXCHANGE BERLIN encourages integrated, collaborative and even spontaneous modes of exhibition and critical evaluation.

GREY CUBE PROJECTS 

http://greycubeprojects.com/

Is a curatorial platform devoted to contemporary Art that establishes multiple transversal interventions within the techno-scientific knowledge, in order to undertake visual research and curatorial arts projects which outcome can be displayed in unusual exhibition formats, In this exercise, the installation and site-specific intervention work as a strategy that tries to be an intuitive trigger for the spectator.

Grey Cube Projects is presenting the group exhibition:

CONTRA–NATURA

Contra-Natura exhibition explores practices that are originated from the combination of artistic and scientific experimentation in order to understand how nature is structured and organizes us. Each of the works in the exhibition raises discussion on boundaries based on non-organic life, loss, and radiation and how these play into questions of social development and growth.

This project of creation establishes a series of contrasting relations between the works that the artists display and the curatorial postulate. In this situation, they indicate processes of substitution and simulation of the organic life. Therefore Contra-Natura proposal can be understood as the persistent dichotomy relationship in a world where avatars are now a reality, not only discursive but applied to social and political life. This condition can be identified within the wide range of natures modified, altered and replaced by synthetic mutations. Contra-Natura reflects on the contradictions and bifurcations of political systems and economic models that deny the notions of sustainability, renewable energy and the equilibrium between different ecosystems. It is true that the human being in most cases performs actions that unbalance the natural, originating a so-called anthropic system, which is constituted by a series of elements that go hand in hand with the technological, urban, industrial and cultural development of society.
