BUT THE ART REMAINS — THE GROUP EXHIBITION “MAN DISAPPEARS LIKE A FACE IN THE SAND ON THE SEASHORE” AT “DIE MÖGLICHKEIT EINER INSEL”
The title of this exhibition is a long one. Long and convoluted and a little bit wistful. It’s borrowed from the great postmodernist Michel Foucault. “Man disappears like a face in the sand on the seashore” is a group exhibition, which is on display until 28.01.2024 in Stephanie Kloss’ project space Die Möglichkeit einer Insel. Curated by participating artist Olivia Berckemeyer, there are so many artists on the list it’s a wonder how all of their work fits into the space. And what artists they are! From A for Anselm Reyle to Z for Thomas Zipp — it feels like everyone who has achieved recognition in Berlin’s wild art scene over the last twenty years is being exhibited. Alicja Kwade, Andrea Pichl, Hansa Wisskirchen, Saâdane Afif, Bernhard Martin, Christian Jankowski and Thomas Scheibitz are just some of the names on the list. But the exhibition doesn’t only boast quantity, it promises quality as well. Unlike the title “like faces in the sand”, none of the artists will be disappearing from Berlin’s thriving art scene any time soon.
