The “jungle” at the heart of the group exhibition Welcome to the Jungle at KW Institute for Contemporary Art serves as a desired imaginary space, symbolizing the subconscious, potentially dangerous counterpart of the controlled urban environment.

About

The jungle marks a maximum distance from everyday life, as the name of the best-known discotheque in the history of West Berlin illustrates. In this group show, artistic positions by international and Berlin-based artists investigate ideas of the self and the other, and together draw a mental map of the present and the life forms within it, whether real or merely possible.
