What secrets do film and dance have to tell one another?

The Superimposition (scenes 1 - 3) considers the possibility of the cinematic and choreographic as containers of embodied action and subjectivity across and outside linear time – to be filled and to be emptied, to transmit and to transform. It is the first in a series of process-based experiments by choreographer Martin Hansen and moving image artist Melanie Jame Wolf.

Three examples of unexpected ‘everyday dance’ scenes that occur in narrative art house cinema have driven the research that brought you the video installation and 2 episodes of live performance. The first at the opening event on Sunday, September 18. They are, namely, Bande a Part by Jean-Luc Godard (1964) and two films by Hal Hartley that reference the Godard: Surviving Desire (1991) and Simple Men (1992).

The artists have been friends for 10 years, and this is the first work they have made together. As choreographer and filmmaker, they are interested in what happens when two formal systems come together, but this is an experiment in form as much as an experiment in collaboration, relation, and in embracing a politics of messy coalition through the sharing of knowledge and skills.

Max Kreis
Trees are still barkin'
2022, Germany

12.09.–22.09.2022
4 – 10 pm

In his work "Trees are still barkin'", Max Kreis (b. 1990, lives and works in Berlin) explores the question of how closely the images of an artificial intelligence can resemble the documentation of a real landscape. In the process, he finds darkly interwoven atmospheres in specially trained AI models, which in their nostalgic blurriness seem to have sprung from a casually filming hand-held camera. The wandering gaze through “latent space” makes it palpable that the digital image will potentially be congruent with nature in a few hardware generations. And thus evokes the larger question that will be asked more frequently in the coming years of the AI revolution: Are we living in a simulation after all?

The on-going screening series “Phantom Horizons” presents digital as well as analogue works that question the paradigm of linear perspective, seeking a new kind of “status perspective” [Bedeutungsperspektive]. The latter was a development of ancient and medieval painting, in which the size of figures is determined by their hierarchical significance. Extending this approach using the methodology of deconstruction and the possibilities of contemporary film creation, the presented works open up multifaceted, unseen horizons.

Berlin Art Prize 2022:
Melanie-Jame Wolf
sarcasm expires quickly

3 September - 14 October 2022
opening on Friday 2 September
6 to 9 pm
visiting hours: Friday to Sunday
3 to 7 pm

Centrum is among the eight partner venues of Berlin Art Prize 2022, hosting a solo exhibition by nominee artist Melanie-Jame Wolf.

Abstracted arcs of flowing blue fabric translate the usually sterile white walls of an exhibition space in a meta-theatrical register. And beyond this choreography of textiles, Melanie-Jame Wolf places a video, which itself allows us to look in front of and behind a stage. Two anachronistic, archetypal comedian personas - Stand Up Ron and Pierrot the Clown - amuse an audience in the eternal loop of the two-channel video work. You can hear them laughing, but the theater auditorium's rows are empty. The film Acts of Improbable Genius (2021) celebrates a certain type of comedian, recently deceased: the mythologies he represents and the violence perpetuates. But it also pays respect to the highly specialised skill set of professional performers, usually rendered invisible as part of the act.

In Melanie-Jame Wolf's exhibition Sarcasm Expires Quickly at Centrum, the stage becomes the venue of a temporal and psychological entanglement of representation and performer. Where does performance begin, where does it end? And who does the social machinery of desire allow to entertain others? The dichotomous body, as seen by oneself and as seen by others, becomes a political enigma in this exhibition. The humor in Melanie-Jame Wolf's texts, performances, films, and installations is a strategy for subliminally posing this riddle.

Melanie-Jame Wolf (b. Launceston, Australia) is a visual artist and choreographer who lives in Berlin. She works solo and with friends, making interdisciplinary pieces about power, flows of capital, and the phenomenon of 'show business'. She examines these economies and entanglements in works for gallery, theater and screen spaces.

Swimming Pool – Troubled Waters

We are all familiar with that cosy, languorous, sun-drenched feeling as the glistening water in a deep blue pool swirls around our feet . . . We are all familiar? The exhibition “Swimming Pool – Troubled Waters” draws on the wide range of ideas and emotions we associate with the topos of the swimming pool, and seeks to expose those common clichés and prejudices that chart our diverse, lasting, and often murky experiences with water. The exhibition probes class barriers and systems of exclusion, amongst others those brought to the surface by the European migrant crisis. References from film history, contemporary art, and a participative reading room developed by C& Center of Unfinished Business, attempts to sound out the gradual infiltration of the issues of inclusion and exclusion into the awareness of affluent societies.

The pivotal axis of the exhibition is Luca Guadagnino’s “A Bigger Splash” from 2015, a film inspired by Jacques Deray’s thriller “La Piscine” (The Swimming Pool) from 1969. Luca Guadagnino has created a veritable anti-film, brushing its sensually elegant predecessor from 1969 against the grain. While “La Piscine” barely touches on contemporary social conflict, “A Bigger Splash” casually fades refugees into the background plot, before fatally weaving them into its climax. The title of the film also alludes to David Hockney’s 1967 painting of the same name. This iconic depiction of hedonistic, q***r, Californian joie de vivre is here contrasted with awareness of acute water shortages and water pollution.

The catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Swimming Pool – Troubled Waters' at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin. It includes contributions by Andrew Berardini, Övül Ö. Durmusoglu, Gustav Elgin, Maaike Gouwenberg, Gudny Gudmundsdóttir, Nele Heinevetter, John Holten, Linda Jalloh, Àngels Miralda, Mearg Negusse, Bert Rebhandl, Vanina Saracino, Valeria Schulte-Fischedick, Olaf Stüber and Carola Uehlken.

Daniel Lie – Scales of Decay

In Daniel Lie’s work time is the central pillar of reflection. From the oldest and most affective memory – involving family and personal stories – to memories objects transport enduring the world over longest time scales; the work is inspired by the period of a lifetime and the duration and states of the elements.

Through installations, sculptures, and the hybridization of art languages, the objects refer to concepts stemming from the art of performance itself – an art which is based on time, ephemerality, and presence. To highlight these three instances, Lie produces installations that have the presence of other-than-humans elements such as decaying matter, growing plants, fungi revealing the time they contain as it relates with the human body.
The research faces tensions between science and religion, ancestry and present, rottenness and freshness, life and death and attempts to break binary thought.

This catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Scales of Decay' of Daniel Lie within the International Studio Programme at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin.
You can purchase the book on our webshop.

DISSONANCE. Platform Germany

Post-reunification Germany has emerged as an important forum for international painting. The generation of artists born in the 1970s and 1980s eschew alignment with collective tendencies and resist clearly definable influences. Meanwhile, their art has registered the cultural and sociological dislocations and divergences since the fall of the Iron Curtain with seismographic precision.

The editors of DISSONANCE. Platform Germany present eighty-one of the most significant painters living and working in Germany in the past two decades. They have the courage of strong opinions, turn the spotlight on unsuspected treasures, and tease out the unexpected value in aesthetically thrilling achievements of programmatic pluralism. A vital survey of one of the most exciting chapters in the more recent history of art in Germany.
Released 2022 by DCV.

The exhibition will be on display until 11.09.2022.

Our former resident, Shubigi Rao, is exhibiting at the Singapore Pavilion for the 59th Biennale di Venezia

Shubigi Rao
“Pulp III: A Short Biography of the Banished Book”

Taking the form of a book, film and paper maze, this solo presentation marks the midpoint of Shubigi Rao’s 10-year project titled Pulp, which explores the history of book destruction and ist impact on the futures of knowledge.

Designed in collaboration with exhibition designer Laura Miotto, the pavilion takes the format of a paper maze. Making tangible the architecture of a book, the installation’s walls are sheets of paper suspended from ceiling beams that fold along the architecture of the space. Cognisant of how books are objects that travel, and of the urgent need for less wasteful exhibitionary practices, the design of the paper maze is made to be mutable, flexible and reusable.

While the exhibition Pulp III: A Short Biography of the Banished Book consists of three distinct elements, the entire pavilion is a holistically conceived artwork. This interdisciplinary work captures the collaborations and interconnectedness of the many ideas, issues, people, ideologies, and references that make up this project.

Curated by Ute Meta Bauer

Künstlerhaus Bethanien

--- siehe unten für die deutsche Fassung ---

The Künstlerhaus Bethanien, one of the first residency programmes worldwide of this kind, can look back on a long and successful history of promoting emerging artists on an international level. It is an established player within the Berlin and international art scene since 1974.

The artistic orientation of our programme includes all kinds of artistic media and practises. The Künstlerhaus offers a worldwide unique combination of studio and exhibition spaces as well as state-of-the-art workshops for wood, metal, spray-paint, video-editing. Further support is offered in publishing catalogues and artist-books. Additionally – aside from technical, curatorial and PR support for solo exhibitions and public Open Studio events –, an individual programme of studio visits, in-house events and professional coaching is arranged.

The Künstlerhaus is located in a landmarked building complex, situated in the very heart of Berlin in the trendy neighbourhood of Kreuzberg.

2020 no Event? sleeping facebook Seite!😭
Notes on the public discussion “Between Afrofuturism and Milky Way Traffic Regulations” held in Künstlerhaus Bethanien on September 2, 2019 As some of you might know, Künstlerhaus Bethanien (from now on will be referred as KB) held yesterday a public discussion to address the criticisms raised against their current exhibition "Milchstraßenverkehrsordnung (Space is the Place)”. As their first reaction to the criticisms was non-transparently changing their original press release, this initiative of them seemed like a more transparent act, so I went there. My hope for an equal and understanding discussion was enhanced when I saw the print-outs of the strong statement made by the intersectional feminist group Soup du Jour (from now on will be referred as SdJ) on the info desk at the entrance but my hope had been brutally smashed once the gentlemen of the night took over the stage. The night started with two individual input from two artists (I am sorry I cannot remember their name, nor find it in the event page) but as I understood later on from the speech of Mr. Tannert, the curator of the exhibition, they volunteered to speak on the stage by taking personal contact with Mr. Tannert. Firs speaker had a very didactic discourse and chose to sit in a way to look at Mr. Tannert’s table instead of turning his face to the audience. I would expect a panelist who volunteer to talk on such a topic to face the audience but his later words would prove that probably Mr. Tannert was the only person in the room he was taking serious. He started his speech blaming SdJ of using the term “violence” wrongly by quoting a shallow definitions of physical violence. It seemed like this person had quite some problem understanding what “systemic or structural violence” means. He indirectly implied the intervention of SdJ fascistic and paid tribute to one of the most common male discourses my lovely female comrades would know very well, “THE BIG PICTURE”. With this, he wanted to say “ah you ladies and minorities, stop your fight about feminism or representation, we have other issues to tackle…” When I later took the mic and mentioned my disappointment of both male speakers’ agitating command of looking at the BIG PICTURE (what I have heard 101010 times in the left circles I was hanging out before), he looked at me with empty eyes and gave no answer. He didn’t address any of the clear questions aroused in the Facebook Post Statement of SdJ published on July 29, 2019 and he seemed to have null understanding of what the criticism is actually about or what the word “representation” means. Long story short, the first speaker contributed no productive input. The second speaker managed only one thing: Characterising the HATE of an antifeminist who somehow managed to find a place for himself in the art world. I strongly suggest him to contact Lars von Trier or some other do**he bag and continue his career being a public women hater cause he is verrrryy good at that. The aggressive tone of this speaker was making it very difficult for me follow the words blurring in his speech which was more like an antifeminist stream of consciousness. His anger was so intense, his whole upper body was moving on the elegant chair and I was afraid for a while that the chair would break. His negative energy was overshadowing my very entspannt mood. I was hoping so much the 3 weeks I spent in the Mediterranean nature would be my energy bank for some time in Berlin but it got all sucked up by this person, but no worries, I have Yoga and Feminism to charge my brain and soul with positivism. This person said he personally knows and works with some of the members of SdJ. And later in his speech, he said these people don’t have enough knowledge or background in art. Most of the members of SdJ are anonymous so I require this person to give names who he was referring to and how on earth he sees himself competent to score someone’s knowledge of art! This person said, if SdJ was so disturbed by the artists (18 white men, 3 white women, 1 artist of colour) represented in the related exhibition, SdJ should have suggested other artists. I said, SdJ is not the curator of the exhibition, Mr. Tannert is! This person said, the members of SdJ and similar collectives want to gain reputation through their campaigns like “Whitey on the Moon”. Once again, most of the members of SdJ want to stay anonymous. This person said, “you know, you got the last two Berlin Biannele and the Documenta, why can you not be happy with that? Why do you attack a small exhibition like this one”. I said “our principles are not according to the scale” This person didn’t understand it. Oh, of course this man also required all feminists to look at the BIG PICTURE! This person later came to me in person outside of the room the public discussion was taking place and asked my name, I didn’t tell him my name. In the second part of the meeting, Mr. Tannert answered the questions of Mr. Adebisi. I couldn’t hear any honest self-criticism from Mr. Tannert. The only thing I understood from himself is that he quite likes Sun Ra, probably that’s the only thing we have in common. Mr. Tannert organised a public discussion with a promise to address the concerns about his exhibition but he didn’t! So, I rephrase the questions asked in the statement of SdJ once again: Why in particular are you crediting Elon Musk in a afrofuturism exhibition, Mr. Tannert? If you are a real fan of Sun Ra, don’t you feel ashamed in trying to harmonise the heritage of Sun Ra with a white male megalomaniac’s dystopian dream of colonising the space???? Why there is not one BPOC artist in an exhibition called “afrofuturism”? Why there was only men talking on the stage? Was it too difficult to collaborate with a FLTI speaker? Why did you call SdJ “Coup du Jour”? I got the impression from your speech that you choose your words quite carefully and take your time and speak quite slowly. So, it makes me question if it was slip of the tongue or the expression of your real thoughts? At least, you were being honest for once, so I guess, thank you for that ! Why did you describe Mr. Adebisi’s moderation a “performance”????? As a high intellectual man, I am sure you understand what this means. By describing his talk and moderation a performance, you patronise his stance and create an unequal platform and imply at the end of the day, your speech is the real one, right? There were two nice moments from last night. When one of the BPOC audiences took the mic and shared his experiences in Germany like being asked all the time "where he actually comes from" and when I could talk, meet and hug 4 beautiful women after the the talk and have a quality talk in 10 minutes unlike the three hours torture show organised by KB! There are def. much more problems to highlight from last night but I didn’t attend the talk as a journalist and got quite weary of the second speaker’s hate so this is all I could write. If you want to criticise, suggest edits or fill up gaps, please feel free to do so! Love, Merve
Art lovers or simply curious, next October a great chance to meet directly artists and discover their works without intermediary. It's Accessible Art Fair.
