BERLIN ART WEEK: TWO BONUS TIPS FOR EXPLORING THE NOW

BERLIN ART WEEK: TWO BONUS TIPS FOR EXPLORING THE NOW

Berlin Art Week is upon us! Newsletter #323 delivered you a bouquet of our top program picks. And now it’s in full swing, we can’t help but share a few more. Opening tonight (14.9.17) is the 2nd edition of the Festival of Future Nows 2017 → ∞ — a collaboration between Olafur Eliasson and his Institut für Raumexperimente e.V. and the Nationalgalerie – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. Until the 17.9.17, over 100 artists will take over Hamburger Bahnhof — Museum für Gegenwart with a dynamic program of performance, dance and music, all in exploration of James A. Baldwin’s call to action, “The challenge is in the moment, the time is always now.” Over at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, take an afternoon to browse Willem de Rooij’s survey show, “Whiteout“, which features a broad selection of the Dutch artist’s work over the past 20 years, providing a fascinating insight into the artist’s preoccupation with collecting and recontextualizing artefacts of the Zeitgeist. Need a moment to process it all? Nip over the road to the bar at Pauly Saal (from 18h) to deconstruct your impressions over a cocktail.

STEFANIE ROTHENHÖFER RECOMMENDS: INDUSTRIESALON SCHÖNEWEIDE

STEFANIE ROTHENHÖFER RECOMMENDS: INDUSTRIESALON SCHÖNEWEIDE

The best Sundays often involve escaping the city for a dose of nature. Journeys into the green don’t have to be long, however — only a few S-Bahn stations outside “the ring” lies Schöneweide, a name chosen to describe the landscape there in the late 20th century, when it was already a popular excursion destination for wealthy city dwellers. But when AEG moved its operations to these beautiful pastures in 1897, this changed dramatically. Within few years, Emil Rathenau had built the world’s largest electrical industrial location. Factory halls as large as cathedrals, the world’s first three-phase power plant, a crane serving as a promenade — much of it still stands today, and can be visited on a guided tour on Sundays. During the 2.5-hour talk along the imposing industrial facades from the Wilhelminenhofstraße to the historic AEG cant, the modern university campus in the former cable plant to the Peter Behrens tower, the tour immerses you in the multifaceted industrial history of Berlin. By the way, Olafur Eliasson and Bryan Adams have recently purchased one of the gigantic halls. What they’ll do with it remains yet to be seen. Here’s hoping that art and culture will prevail and bring more beauty back to the pastures of Schöneweide. (Text: Stefanie Rothenhöfer / Photos: Devan Grimsrud, Industriesalon Schöneweide)

BEHIND THE LENS WITH “MASTER OF LIGHT” — ROBBY MÜLLER

BEHIND THE LENS WITH “MASTER OF LIGHT” — ROBBY MÜLLER

If you haven’t yet visited the Museum for Film and Television and need an extra push, allow us. Now through 5.11.17, the museum is hosting a special exhibition on one of the most influential directors of photography, Robby Müller. In the early 1960s, many young filmmakers were rebelling against conventional studio film aesthetics, striving instead to capture everyday existence as authentically as possible. This is what Müller would go on to pursue and become known for, pushing the boundaries of new lighting techniques and film stocks while leaving behind unnecessary technical aids, excessive lighting, and “camera acrobatics”. Known best for his work with directors Wim Wenders, Lars von Trier, and Jim Jarmusch, Müller’s most famous shots are beautiful in their simplicity, with a few being highlighted by large screen scene projections in the museum’s exhibition. In addition, there are a number of interviews, video diaries, and polaroids collected as an intensely focused audiovisual insight into the man behind the camera. (Text: Devan Grimsrud / Photos: Marian Stefanowski, Robby Müller c/o Annet Gelink Gallery Amsterdam)

DRIVE HOSTS: ARS ELECTRONICA IN BERLIN & THIRD LANDSCAPE

For new perspectives on digital encounters and the human environment, we suggest you take a visit to Drive. Volkswagen Group Forum, where two exciting exhibitions are on view until 26 October. The sixth digital media art exhibition at the forum is curated by Ars Electronica, which organizes one of the world’s most important yearly media art festivals in Linz, Austria. This time around, they challenged 14 international artists to focus on the theme of ‘encounters’ and human relationships with technology. From visual research of environmentally affected insects to the invisible sound on electromagnetic waves, the forms take shape to tell a story, deepened by the supporting works of the second exhibition: “Third Landscape”, featuring monochrome photographs by Volker Kreidler. Dive into these varied perspectives, and form your own along the way. (Text: Devan Grimsrud / Photos: Volker Kreidler, Drive. Volkswagen Group Forum)
