Apartment Project Berlin @ NO (B)ORDERS

NO (B)ORDERS is to be understood as a universal political outcry coming directly out of the project space art scene. It stands for an open worldview, the artistic recapturing of urban space, as well as the preservation of autonomy and diversity for project spaces and initiatives. Four internationally active project spaces and initiatives were selected through an open call for this exhibition, based on artworks that are clearly positioned against discrimination and repression, instead displaying ways forward toward communication and freedom. The group exhibition allows not only for an encounter with different forms of reflection and expression, but also offers a space for spontaneous art actions and further discussion.

Offene Werkstatterfahrung im Schichtbetrieb

Die “Offene Werkstatterfahrung im Schichtbetrieb” verkörperte anfangs die Reaktion auf die unfassbare und unberechtigte Verhaftung von Osman Kavala – welchen wir kennen und mit ihm in Kontakt stehen; dennoch tritt sie aus der Notwendigkeit hervor, sich solidarisch mit all denen zu zeigen, welche ihrer Freiheit beraubt wurden, weil sie Gebrauch von ihrer Meinungsfreiheit gemacht haben. Sie fand am 9.10.11.12 Februar im Istanbuler Kunstraum DEPO statt.
Die “Offene Werkstatterfahrung im Schichtbetrieb” hat es ermöglicht dass Künstler und Kunst schaffende aus verschiedenen Generationen in einem gemeinsam genutzten Raum zusammen kommen konnten.
Mit Vorstellungsvermögen, mit Spielen, und der erschaffenen Sprache war man zusammen.
