FAME AND FATIGUE: A 12-HOUR ART EXHIBITION

FAME AND FATIGUE: A 12-HOUR ART EXHIBITION

You might think that there can’t still be secret or undiscovered spaces in our city. But through rumours and research, Berlin-based curatorial platform Neue Berliner Räume discovered a secret concert hall from the 1900s in the heart of Berlin. Like much of the city, the high ceilinged space, with its magnificent golden ornamentation, was not left undamaged by the Second World War and it has been closed to the public ever since. Those who discovered it respected this history, leaving it unmarred by their modern presence. Although the location has been kept a secret, you can still catch a glimpse of the long-forgotten space at another location, but for twelve hours only. This happens from 22h this Saturday (16.07) until 10h on Sunday morning (17.07). The exhibition Ruhm und Erschöpfung (Fame and Fatigue), named after an unfinished novel by German pulp fiction writer and poet R.F. Linder, will focus on the abandoned hall. This durational performance is a co-production from Neue Berliner Räume and the theatre collective copy & waste. (Text: Nicolene van der Walt / Photos: Ben Busch, Gif: Marie Wocher)
