Congotay! Congotay! (The Understories) is part of an artistic research project by Nathalie Anguezomo Mba Bikoro mapping Berlin’s involvement in colonial crimes as well as resistance movements. Her findings are revealed in films and images, found objects, archival traces, and especially audio pieces. The work brings together narratives from the 1920s to 1940s that honor feminist voices in Afrofuturism and reflect critically on the involvement of the German creative industry in the exploitation and murder of diasporic communities. They invite us to look anew at (un)known places in the city and to encounter them as sites of remembrance and reparation.

Ezgi Kılınçaslan’s video Vicious Cycle (2021) focuses on the question of the human self-image in the face of the anthropocentric destruction of nature. Kılınçaslan situates the short film in a post-apocalyptic setting, where the artist lives among plastic tarps in a patch of forest – with a mannequin as her only companion and mirror of her actions. The harmful mechanisms of human intervention in nature are hinted at here, as is the attempt to return to harmony with nature. A bodysuit covered with pinecones featured in the video is activated in the exhibition as a kinetic object that confronts the viewer as a new life form.

22/04/2022

In these works, Theresa Kampmeier looks at the history of alternative modernization movements and their transnational networks during the time of colonial modernism. Margaret Digby, The Wall (1925) and Token No. 1 are based on archival research into rural emancipatory movements taking place between c. 1890 and 1940. Embossed on the coins of Token No. 1 is the Chinese character 平 (píng), which stands for equality and served as the logo of the Mass Education Movement founded in the 1920s, which advanced the emergence of cooperatives in Ding Xian, China. The radio play Margaret Digby, The Wall (1925) is based on the script of a children’s play written by the British reformer Margaret Digby in 1925 for performance at Labour Party rallies in Britain. The piece aimed to convey principles of communality and international solidarity.

In her artistic practice, Anne Duk Hee Jordan looks at the manifold interconnections and transformations of ecological systems. In the video installation Diasporae, she and Pauline Doutreluingne explore the historical nutmeg trade. The nutmeg tree was found on just a few island groups in Indonesia before being commercially cultivated and sparking numerous armed conflicts between European colonial powers in the 17th century. In rapid, rhythmic image sequences, historical paintings of imperial shipping fleets, shots of the arduous nutmeg harvest, and Jordan’s drawings fan out a panorama of colonial appropriation, resettlement, and subjugation of flora, fauna, and people.

20/04/2022

In the video work Stone of Hell (2021), Giorgi Gago Gagoshidze and Tekla Aslanishvili explore the history and development of manganese mining in the small town of Chiatura, Georgia. Manganese ore, which is used in steel production, has been extracted in Georgia in a state-owned mine since 1877. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the emergence of a globalized, neoliberal market economy led to the decline of local infrastructures and increased export logistics. The extracted raw material is processed abroad into steel, returning to the country in the form of imported excavators, which continue the ecological and social overexploitation in Chiatura.

Kamilla Bischof develops large-scale paintings that she contextualizes through furnishings and other objects as well as texts. Basic Ikea tables serve as pedestals for the works shown here, which the artist has transformed into dollhouselike structures with the help of found cardboard models. They testify not only to Bischof’s playful approach to the conventions of exhibiting but also to her preoccupation with domestic furnishings. The objects are often transformed through painting and installation, resulting in theatrical interiors or anthropomorphic figures that populate exhibition spaces like eccentric protagonists.

In her sculptures, paintings, and video works, Catherine Biocca takes a particularly close look at the violent potential of language. Through the technique of assemblage, Biocca layers disparate ready-made objects and commercial as well as collaged textiles in her sculpture Brain Drop. Many of the language snippets included here come from online forums discussing conflicts in parent-child relationships – Biocca’s interest in this topic lies in the tension between intimacy and paternalism as well as the use of linguistic stereotypes. They draw attention to the intersection of communicatively manufactured violence and prototypical utterances as disseminated in the form of online memes.

Thunder in Your Throat presents works by 11 international artists awarded the 2021 Berlin Senate’s work stipends in the visual arts. This joint group exhibition showcases their latest artistic productions. What unites the featured artists is their preoccupation with contemporary culture, social grievances, the ongoing impacts of historical crimes, and emancipatory counter-movements while maintaining a highly unique artistic signature. Together, they articulate a critical view of contemporary image politics, value creation mechanisms, economic inequality, and the exploitation of people and nature. Transcending disciplinary boundaries and formal conventions, the visually powerful and atmospherically intense works expose sociopolitical practices and put them up for debate.

With her long-term projects at the intersection of art, politics, and commodity culture, Irena Haiduk expands traditional models of art production. In 2015, she incorporated Yugoexport, an oral corporation whose founding logic is equivalence, loyalty, and familial solidarity between people and things. Her exhibition in the n.b.k. Showroom is dedicated to the Frauenbank, founded in Berlin in 1910 and one of the first credit institutions run exclusively by and for women. Even before women were given the right to vote, the Berlin Frauenbank made it clear until its dissolution in 1916 that social emancipation could only succeed in tandem with financial independence.

Nan Goldin has significantly influenced the art of photography with her intimate portraits of her personal life, friends and family. Since the 1980s Goldin documents in a frank and empathic way, friendships, love relationships, physical abuse, AIDS-crisis. She questions societal norms by making different lifestyles, gender identities, and sexualities visible. Goldin’s recent work includes the digital slideshow Memory Lost (2019–2021), which she considers one of her most radical and ambitious works yet. The photographs form an intense narrative, relating the darkest hours of a life dominated by drug addiction, and revealing the complexity of memory. This selection also includes the image The Crowd, Paternò (2004), which the artist specially adapted for the n.b.k. Billboard series. Accompanying it is a sound piece composed by Soundwalk Collective (Stephan Crasneanscki and Simone Merli).
