Horror Vacui + Jump

Horror Vacui (horror of emptiness) is the hypothesis that the nature in front of empty spaces „shrink

back“. Therefore, empty spaces are anxious to suck gas or liquids, so they no longer be empty.

HORROR VACUI

ist eine Kollaboration mit Hannah Murgatroyd und behandelt das Abwesende oder die Angst vor der

Leere.

JUMP was a project of the group FS8 on the 31th of May and 1 June 2008 in the context of „Arts

Invasion“ of Berlin Art Gallery FS8 was an interdisciplinary group: artists from the visual arts, painting,

performance, graphic design and architecture had come together to make strategic spatial interventions.

The collected material of an intervention will be shown in a new way.

Woven Trajectories

 

part of 48 Stunden Neukölln 2016

Each artist who has exhibited at Studio Baustelle in the last five years was invited to contribute an unfinished artwork or a sketch for an artwork and, in turn, to invite a colleague to exhibit a piece, filling the exhibition room with ideas-in-progress. These pieces are exhibited as artifacts of working methods and trajectories of desire. They can be built upon, re-contextualized, misunderstood, or marveled over in their fertile state. Artists and festival visitors are encouraged to discuss, expand upon and be inspired by these nascent ideas.

 

featuring:

Alisa Tretau, Annalisa Metus, Anne Krauß, Barbara Rosenthal, Charlotte Perrin, Edward McAliece, Elsa Thorp, Filippo Cortado, Fox Italic, Friederike Hammann, Ginta Vasermane, Immo Eyser, Janin Walter, Justin Allen, Katinka Theis, Kevin Ryan, Leo Jahaan, Margherita Pevere, Matt Arbuckle, Matthias Wiese, Maxwell Duryea, Michael Bennett, Monika Berstis, Nam Nguyen, Robert Gaspard, Sena Clara Creston, Sofie Engström von Alten, Steffen Kasperavicius and friends

Ja! Produktion präsentiert: 

Essen & Sex: SWEET PEEP SALON presents:

Strange desires to see and buy!

Tasty rubbing, frying, feeding!

Relaxed peeping in comfy booths!

Shameless mixtures of fiction and reality, Lust and frustration, food and sex!

Of all the female* sins, hunger is the least forgivable; hunger for anything, for food, sex, power,

education, even love. If we have desires, we are expected to conceal them, to control them, to keep

ourselves in check. We are supposed to be objects of desire, not desiring beings. (L. Penny,

Unspeakable Things)

 

Essen und Sex: SWEET PEEP SALON seeks alternative expressions of body, eroticism and

emancipated femininity. How do feminist, sexpositive ideas change contemporary depictions of intimacy

and the body? Which substantial notions of sexuality do we have to rethink?

Premiere BRUTALISM BEATS

Das Ihmezentrum steht für Vision, Risiko, Experiment und Ratlosigkeit. Ein Elefant in der Stadt, der

seinen eigenen Rythmus vorgibt. Lasst euch ein, dann taucht auch ihr.

Ginta Vasermane

 

Working Frames "In non-narrative videos I compose and choreograph theatrical-performative scenes, which play with

relationships between bodies, architecture, the space of the frame and their limits and elasticity (expansion). While setting up human bodies both in architectural space and in the space of the frame as sculptural elements, I stage an existence with its own logic and rules. Movements are composed in a specific rhythm and become irrational and possible at the same time. The arrangements of body positions are expressive of, and play with, the inner conditions of an observer placed in diverse social conditions, spaces and structures.

With light irony and poetic methods I play with a subject through staged scenarios. There’s a questioning of who we are and what we do in specific locations.

All the videos are connected to each other in order to create a narrative network, and are to be set up in a multi-channel installation in the space."

ESSEX

 

ESSEX - Essen und Sex Essen und Sex treffen direkt die Schamzonen unseres Körpers. Was eigentlich

Lust verschaffen soll, kann schnell in Frust umschlagen.

Mit ESSEX stellen wir uns unseren Peinlichkeiten - in einem leicht perversen Happening mischen wir

Warhol mit Wein und Performance mit Party. Ein Geburtstagskind im Fotoautomat lädt ein, ihre Banane

zu bemalen, ein anderes serviert Drinks aus der Badewanne.

Mit Performances von Johanna Ackva, Carrie McIlwain, Alisa TretauFotografien und Video: Caglar Cakan, Alisa Tretau

Installation/Automat: Marvin Horstmann

Musikalisch begleitet von Barbara Salesch DJ Team

50 Surreal Photos from Wish for Amnesia

BARBARA ROSENTHAL

Studio Baustelle presented the second exhibition of surreal photography by the New York avant-garde

artist-writer-performer, Barbara Rosenthal. The show comprises 50 eerie, magical, color and black and

white photos from between the chapters of her new novel, “Wish for Amnesia.”

(Deadly Chaps Press: Bklyn, USA)

Claudio Scardino of Florence, Italy provided an ambient audio environment composed of diverse sound

samples. Scardino hosted Ms. Rosenthal for the international booklaunch of this novel, and curated

several of her readings and video events in Italy in 2015. Mr. Scardino is a musician and sculptor.

Rosenthal's novel pivots around a character with a messianic complex. The book, which takes place in

New York and Rome, explores many philosophical and visual phenomena through its zany characters:

Jack Rubin, a political activist; his psychotic wife, his genius daughter; his artist girlfriend; and a

nefarious Rome taxi driver.

Here you'll find more information about the artist and musician:
