1 – SCHAUDEPOT BUCHSTABENMUSEUM – El museo de las letras
Leipziger Straße 49. 10117 Berlin, Deutschland

Aún no es un museo, de momento es un almacén de letras de plexiglás, de madera, de metal y neones que un grupo de gente ha empezado a coleccionar con la idea de abrir un museo en un futuro. Hace un par de semanas -ya- hicieron un día de puertas abiertas por petición de gente interesada.Tienen piezas de coleccionista, sobretodo anuncios que han conseguido recuperar de la antigua DDR. En estos momentos buscan ayuda económica para recuperar un anuncio de un acuario que va a ser destruido en Frankfurter Tor.  En su web tienen un archivo de los anuncios de la colección y anuncian más días de puertas abiertas.

2- Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum

En la zona próxima, entre Axel Springer Building and Fischerinsel, hay unos enormes descampados,  cada día más ocupados por nueva edificación, que durante el muro, fueron una zona militarizada entre Kreuzberg y Mitte. Estos descampados han acogido una serie de eventos artísticos y actividades socio-culturales desde el año 2006 hasta hoy, incluso parte de la anterior Biennal. Hoy el espacio en que poder realizar intervenciones, crear situaciones o mostrar elementos efímeros se reduce drásticamente día a día, por la alta especulación inmobiliaria que supone la localizazión de estos descampados. Aún así el grupo de Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum siguen incansables invitando a artistas a actuar sobre el lugar.  http://www.skulpturenpark.org/

Auto-Kino!
5 febrero- 14 marzo, 2010

Una idea estupenda de Phil Collins para visionar vídeo en condiciones decentes para el público. Un auténtico Auto-cine en el interior del Temporäre Kunsthalle, incluido un imbiss de palomitas.Como el espacio es grande pero limitado, (habrán unos 10 coches)  hay que reservar plaza, pero es GRATIS

El programa seleccionado por Phil Collins y Siniša Mitrović no tiene desperdicio. Debería durar un año y así podría ver todo lo que me interesa.

Hoy he visto Leben BRD de Harun Farocki, como siempre dando en el clavo como gota malaya mostrando la perversidad particular y colectiva tan bien integrada de nuestra sociedad del malestar. Enlazando fragmentos de personas que asisten a cursos (yes, we coaching) para conseguir un trabajo de superviviente, (desde las instrucciones a la streaper hasta de cómo limpiar a un enfermo a las enfermeras de cuidados intensivos), mezclado con espeluznantes pruebas sicológicas para volver loco a un niño aburrido de la estupidez adulta y sórdidas terapias de grupo que parecen inducir al suicidio.

Los dos artistas revisitan el lugar de la batalla de Verdún más que como lugar histórico, como espacio escénico. Las fotografías estenopeicas de Chris Dreier tomadas a ras de suelo pretenden contrastar con una visión más “aérea” de los dibujos puntillistas de Andreas Seltzer.

JAN PETER HAMMER   The Anarchist Banker

Hammer emula una entrevista televisiva a un banquero en el contexto de la actual crisis económica, tomando como guión de base una obra de Fernando Pessoa con el mismo título. Hammer adapta el diálogo entre el banquero portugués Alves dos Reis y su secretaria a la actualidad económica del capitalismo salvaje. El banquero se muestra por encima del bien y del mal, justificado por todos los gobiernos liberales que gestionan, promocionan y enraizan el egoismo racional como único valor universal.

Hito Steyerl at n.b.k.

Posted in exposición, político, video by black maria on 31/08/2009

SteyerlAugust 29–Oktober 18, 2009

Curated by Marius Babias

The presentation in the Neuer Berliner Kunstverein is artist and film-maker Hito Steyerl’s first solo show at a German institution. Her work has been featured at big exhibitions such as the 3. berlin biennial for contemporary art (2004), Manifesta 5 (2004), documenta 12 (2007), or the Shanghai Biennial (2008). Trained as a filmmaker, she holds a PhD in philosophy and works on the borderline between cinema and visual art, combing elements of experimental film, auteur cinema, documentary, and video art to undertake cutting post-colonial and feminist critiques of representation.

Using a sharply honed (visual) language to effect her discourse analysis slightly rephrased, Steyerl penetrates the masscultural aesthetic to reflect upon social change. She uses what could be called a “theoretical practice,” a “discursive action” that leaves behind the separation of theory and practice to attain a complex analytical view of the world that encompasses visuality and language in equal measure. In this approach, theoretical thought does not freeze up in reflection; instead, film-making renders it productive as a creative act of mediation between the theoretical and practical realms.

Her films are a montage of pop and politics, Hollywood and independent film, interviews and voice-over commentaries, all combined into provocative filmic analyses of the present. In her new film After the Crash (2009), Steyerl tells the story of the current global economic crisis through the example of airplane junkyard in the Californian desert. In the double projection In/Dependence (2008), Steyerl returns to the theme of Japanese bondage, a subgenre of pornography that she already explored in her earlier film Lovely Andrea (2007). In Do you speak Spamsoc (2008), she examines the logic of “Spamsoc” as its own language of translation on the covers of pirated Chinese DVDs. The film November (2004) tells the story of Steyerl’s teenage friend Andrea Wolf, who later become a fighter for the PKK, while the animation film Red Alert 2 (2008) follows up on the reception of Red Alert (2007), one of Steyerl’s contributions to documenta 12. The n.b.k Video-Forum will feature the documentation The Building (2009), an intervention on migration and national socialism that Steyerl made in the framework of the European Cultural Capital Linz 09.

Book series “n.b.k exhibitions”
The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication with an introduction by Marius Babias and texts by T.J. Demos and Bert Rebhandl. This 168 page color illustrated German-English volume will appear with the publishing house of Walther König, Cologne. In spring 2010 the book series “n.b.k discourse” will also feature a collection of essays by Hito Steyerl.

The Close Talker and The Newcomers

A theatre play by Rubén Grilo, performed by Susie Meyer
Thursday 16th July 2009 – 20:00 h.
Ballhaus Ost – Pappelallee 15 – 10437 Berlin

Iwas once told the following story: Two guys who studied together decided to join a survey firm and thus earn some small money. Both of them were friendly enough, neither too ugly nor too handsome, neither too tall nor too short. The two of them worked on the same streets, one week at a time. Both of them left their personal chores to attend the same exams and, at the end, they came up with more or less the same amount of completed surveys. After some weeks, though, one of them was astonished to discover he had earned a lot less money than the other. He called the firm to ask for an explanation. They told him that for a survey to be considered successfully completed, the person surveyed had to confirm the results by phone —and that most of the people had turned down the confirmation call. He met his friend and told him about it, but neither one nor the other was able to find any substantial reason for it. After talking for a while, they both said goodbye to each other. Just before leaving, his friend touched his arm, lightly, with his hand.

An actress invites the public to come in to an exhibition set up on the stage of the Ballhaus Ost. For a little less than an hour, she’ll talk about objects and images unrelated to each other except for the fact that they appear in her narration. A secret performance carried off some days before on the streets of Berlin; the agreement of an actor to perform a given role for his whole life; the story of the mistaken reading of a work by Dan Graham; the myths that surround interpersonal distance; punk culture and many other topics will rest on one basic assumption: that a gentle touch on the arm absurdly and marvellously drove people to accept the confirmation call.

The Close Talker And The Newcomers refers to a bigger project that Rubén Grilo is working on since 2007 revolving around Ev, a fictional character conceived from the beginning as a consequence of the personal and professional relation that the Spanish actor Sergi Torrecilla and himself have established for the duration of their lives. This relation grows from different experiences organized throughout chapters in the form of performances, videos, photographs and texts. This performance is part of Chapter number two.
