Everyone Wants It

Opening: 24 November, 6-9 pm

“Can’t we arrange the space in a more collaborative way?” is one sentence from the three dialogs in the movie painting hybrid Everyone Wants It.

Everyone is excited about the second part before they have seen the first. That sounds curious but it is true I can tell you in a few words like a love poem. “Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds…”, Shakespeare wrote in Sonnet 116. This phrase fits well because I would like to show the popular elements in the work without telling what will happen. The play is text and picture based and has a time frame in which we can follow three dialogs on a LED display while the movie is built up like a multi-layered stage in the window.

The storylines are clearly separated from each other in terms of content, but spatially they are drawn together in such a way that the LED font can be reduced to a purely visual element. The dialogs light up other immaterial conversations taking place. The conversations between the protagonists, the materials, the different spaces, inside and outside, glass and textile, A and B, street and window, you and me are overlapping and through visible.

Together, Deborah Schamoni and O-Town House are pleased to present The exhibition formerly known as „trace image“. The show was initially conceived as an exploration of artistic practices located between presence and absence via works that probe strategies of art-making which exploit or obscure the notion of the body (or: figure) through various devices of abstraction. However, as the conversations with the artists of The exhibition formerly known as „trace image“ developed, the exhibition began to tell its own story. Both Deborah Schamoni and Scott Cameron Weaver operate their exhibition spaces from their homes. These very particular and intimate settings facilitate yet- undiscovered conversations and expose a new language for time-honored binaries with a unique kind of storytelling.

Forming Communities: Berliner Wege – 道法柏林, 而游于外 (Dào fǎ bólín, ér yóu yú wài)

Opening: 27 August, 6 – 9 pm

aaajiao 徐文恺, Ellinor Aurora Aasgaard, Cao Kefei 曹克 非, Isaac Chong Wai, Chun Shu 春树, Fan Popo 范坡坡, Han Feng 韩锋, He Xiangyu 何翔宇, Benno Hinkes, Nadia Kaabi-Linke, Liao Wenfeng 廖文峰, Elizabeth Ravn, Tobias Spichtig, Tak Young-jun 탁영준 卓永俊, Bignia Wehrli 宾雅, Regina Weiss, Yi Ke 伊可, Yi Li 一子

Forming Communities shows examples of the connections between artists from China, across Asia, and other parts of the world who are internationally active and based in Berlin. The result is a picture of an artistic landscape of diversity around a group of artists from Asia, which conveys the closeness and distance of the people involved on all semantic and sociological levels. The exhibition works with formats of invitation and networking; this includes regular meetings with the participating artists during the exhibition, which are open to all visitors.

It’s Just a Phase / Det er bare en fase

We are very excited to present "It's Just a Phase", the very first exhibition at KUK.

Thematically, the exhibition looks at life phases and the way they have changed in the light of social, ethical and technological development in recent times. With a special focus on body and identity, works of art from 29 artists with very different backgrounds and from all over the world will bring KU-K's exhibition space to life, while the institution takes its first steps.

The exhibition questions the essentialism of the phases of life - from birth to adolescence and beyond. At the birth of KUK, the exhibition looks at the institutional phases of life and their inverted, new definitions. "It's Just a Phase" thus carefully fine-tunes routine perceptions of life phases and their resolution into more fluid, swinging, changing, curious and performative proposals, and looks at how life blends into new ways of being, as a kind of ongoing birth of identity (nods, of course, in this case, a new showroom, a new institution, taking its first steps into a changing reality).

Merzbau-Garten is a collaborative project which is growing over the course of three modules by combining the work, concepts and labor of various Berlin-based artists, writers, and designers. Inspired in part by Kurt Schwitters' Merzbau, the space at Kinderhook & Caracas is organically accumulating architectural interventions, art works and plant life over the course of the year, meanwhile manifesting in a parallel, non-linear publication with contributions from all of the participants. A program of encounters accompanies the physical exhibition.
