Open-air cinema is everywhere in Berlin – but what about open-air art? Next Friday (28.08) you can discover what it’s all about at the Berlinische Galerie, which as part of its Jung und Artig membership program is turning the museum grounds into a giant projection screen. On show is the video project “Manioc, I grind you, sister” by Brazilian artists and IBB Video Space residents Barbara Marcel and Ana Hupe. Marcel and Hupe have combined their interests in environmental and socio-economic issues and colonialism to make a two-channel video that looks at the indigenous practice of making tapioca starch, blending old and new Brazilian films with interview material. At a pre-screening talk with museum director Thomas Köhler, the artists will discuss how they filmed with activists in the Amazon between 2013 and 2017. And since this is an open-air screening, popcorn and cold drinks are of course provided. Want to visit the Berlinische Galerie more often? You can also become a member of Jung und Artig and get to know other young art enthusiasts – check out Instagram for details.
