EXCLUSIVE SCREENING: WHEN THE EARTH SEEMS TO BE LIGHT

EXCLUSIVE SCREENING: WHEN THE EARTH SEEMS TO BE LIGHT

Cold days call for great screenings – a documentary about young skaters and artists in Post-Soviet Georgia, to be specific. Created by Salome Machaidze, Tamuna Karumidze, and David Meskhi, the 80-minute movie is a story of teenagers breaking free from their country’s bleak conditions, and creating their own world of friendship, freedom, and dreams. The first public screening after being presented at more than 30 film festivals worldwide, When the Earth Seems to be Light will be shown at Babylon cinema in Georgian with English subtitles, followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.

TCHOBAN FOUNDATION: AN ARCHITECTURAL SKETCHBOOK

TCHOBAN FOUNDATION: AN ARCHITECTURAL SKETCHBOOK

The Tchoban Foundation is featured in our book Cee Cee Berlin No2. Get the book here.

I don’t know any good artists or designers who can’t put their ideas to paper with their hands. In my eyes, those are the most beautiful drawings: vague scribbles; rapidly laid down lines of the first ideas; the beginning of a long process of a (hopefully) successful architectural work. Sergei Tchoban: architect, illustrator, and collector, founded the Tchoban Foundation in 2009 with this principle in mind. An impressive collection of architectural drawings is the museum’s focus, ranging from designs created by old masters to the first sketches of star architect Zaha Hadid. Meanwhile, the library presents a fantastic research opportunity for lovers of drawing, design, and fine lines. (Text: Milena Kalojanov / Photos: Roland Halbe, Patricia Parinejad)

TOTAL RECORDS EXHIBITION: THE ART OF VINYL

TOTAL RECORDS EXHIBITION: THE ART OF VINYL

What’s an image worth? To a visual audience, record covers can have more influence on our buying of a record than the music itself. Opening this Friday at C/O Berlin, the Total Records exhibition will showcase around 500 classic and lesser-known vinyl covers from the 1960s to the 2000s. Looking at both the artists in front and behind the camera, the images on display are rich with identity, style, and scandal. For the musical artists, covers are a representation of who they are, not rarely intended as provocation, to spark controversy, or make a political statement. For the artists designing covers, such as Robert Frank’s portrayal of The Rolling Stones, or Jean Paul Goude’s representation of Grace Jones, cover design was a way to popularize their work and experiment with photographic technique. Join the opening this Friday for live music and free entry. (Text: Victoria Pease)

MADE IN THE EMIRATES: ABU DHABI ART TAKES BERLIN

MADE IN THE EMIRATES: ABU DHABI ART TAKES BERLIN

Abu Dhabi’s art scene is having a moment. You could go as far as saying that it’s the Berlin of the Persian Gulf. Beyond its skyscrapers and man-made islands, the capital thrives with rich cultural heritage. This Friday at Kunstquartier Bethanien, seventeen young, emerging, and established artists from Abu Dhabi are opening an exhibition titled Art Nomads-Made in the Emirates, featuring painted works, installations, and photography. To complement the Kreuzberg vernissage, early next year will see several artists from Berlin present their works in Abu Dhabi. To celebrate the opening this weekend, a symposium led by art professionals working in and with the United Arab Emirates will take place on Saturday, looking at Abu Dhabi’s rapid transformation, and the influence of culture in building cities.

SHOWROOM OPENING: CENTURY-CROSSOVERS OF ABSTRACT ART

SHOWROOM OPENING: CENTURY-CROSSOVERS OF ABSTRACT ART

What does Mike Tyson’s famous phrase “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face” have to do with art? Both are characterized by fluidity and a bold, experimental nature. If you’re not convinced, this weekend is your chance: On Friday and Saturday, Die Kunsthandlung opens two showrooms that place contemporary art alongside nineteenth century artworks. By juxtaposing abstract art from different centuries, whether painting, installation, or photography, visitors experience a unique combination of past and present narratives. (Text: Victoria Pease)
