The best exhibitions leave reverberations long after you leave, and this is true of “Bonds” by Julie Favreau, currently showing at the Schwartzsche Villa in Steglitz. Originally built as a summer residence, the villa now offers space for a café and a municipal gallery that presents solo exhibitions of international contemporary art. For 2020 the focus is on “Human Textures”, and the current show from the Canadian-born, Berlin-based artist brings together a mural, photographs, sculptures and two video installations curated by Christine Nippe. The exhibition deals with the interaction of the human body from a feminist perspective, featuring curious-looking “technoid-organic” objects. Special interest is devoted to the exploration of touch, relationship, togetherness, spirituality and sensuality in these striking encounters between human beings and technology.
