Opening Friday April 1st, 18h ( for real!!) AUFRISS – ZEIT, LANDSCHAFT, FAMILIE by Malte Hein @jamachma

With this exhibition, Berlin artist, Malte Hein, explores his family history and its consequences to present relationships and realities. More than 35 hours of audio interviews with his wartime and post-war born relatives serve as the source for artistic searches, questions and interpretations. Time – Landscape – Family. Single figures in barren surroundings hint at archetypal issues like loneliness, unrest or helplessness without explicitly illustrating them. The result of this journey, a group of oil paintings, transform these individual experiences into something broader. The works question our generation's connection to our families’ past and reflect on history’s lessons and our shortfall, at times, to draw appropriate consequences from them.

open Saturday and Sunday from 11 am – 5 pm.

Tips This Week! NEVER MIND THE BURNOUT CURATORS TALK March 24,19h @hausamluetzowplatz @katharinaschillingberlin @jimavignon

As part of the group exhibition "never mind the burnout" the curators Katharina Schilling and Jim Avignon will give a talk exploring the topic of burnout in the context of art history. Beyond the presented works, the curators will look at works by well-known masters whose depiction can be read as a state of permanent overload. Art as a mirror of society depicts a picture of life on the edge of total exhaustion, which has been highly relevant not least since the Corona crisis.

This week at @thxagain.berlin: THU March 17th, 18-19:15- BLACKING OUT THE CANON as part of OPEN ENCOUNTERS with Abdullah Qureshi, Tasnim Bagdadi, Sara Khan, Syowia Kyambi, Natasha Jozi and Gloria Zein

When Tasnim Baghdadi is “blacking out the canon” she questions hegemonial modes of thinking and canonic knowledge productions in art history, philosophy and religion. Her artistic practice subverts western modernisms through a re-appropriation of abstraction. In her conversation with Abdullah, both theorists will discuss disruptions of colonial continuities through knowledge as well as find out about the invisible, forgotten, folded and yet hidden aspects of artistic truth.

And on Sat MARCH 19, 6 pm - 6.45 pm: ON MAGICAL REALISM
Sara Khan was raised in Lahore (even though born in Birmingham) and adds a female gaze on the patriachal system in Pakistan - and beyond. In that formal, painterly conversation, they find beauty in mythology, visual symbolism and magical realism.

show runs until 23 Apr 2022

MARTIN MLECKO Private Life
Opening Sat March 12, 6 - 9 pm @dorotheenilssongallery
@martinmlecko

Private Life is made up of 300 photos found at flea markets or in the personal archives of friends and family. Collected, selected, and reworked by the artist, this "gallery of private snapshots”, spanning 1960s to 1990s, covers a broad spectrum of subjects - parties in the ‘70s, a day at the beach, kissing your aunt on the cheek, or a favorite pet. Mlecko saw himself as a catalyst, someone who is rendering these images visible in a different way. Private Life shows the archetypes of relationships between family and friends, us and others. Susan Sonntag wrote that the most grandiose result of the photographic enterprise is to give us a sense that we can hold the whole world in our heads - as an anthology of images. Mlecko strived to create an anthology of familial contentment, the web that we spin around family and friends, to keep us close, to keep them together. Now an especially poignant reminder of the fragility of the links between people and how easily they can be torn apart. Each snapshot conveyed for Mlecko a sense of beauty in the happiness shown between the people on the print, a recurrent theme in his work. He found the allure in the everyday.

Current Covid 19 pandemic restrictions in Germany are being followed. Please wear a medical mask when visiting the exhibition.

OPEN CALL FOR IDEAS APPLY UNTIL MARCH 31st
LOCALIZE OVER THE HUMP festival for city, culture and art in Potsdam
>> www.localize-potsdam.de

Artists and cultural practitioners are invited to develop site-specific works dealing with the (im/)possibilities and practices of overcoming and posing questions about how current challenges can be met artistically.

From July 15 to 17, Localize, the festival for city, culture and art, opens up a space for artistic perspectives beyond the city center at the foot of Potsdam's Telegrafenberg on abandoned commercial premises.

Localize is seeking site-specific artistic works, inter- and anti-disciplinary, as well as cross-genre formats that deal with the art of overcoming obstacles and creating utopias, as well as confronting conventional practices and fomenting new ideas.

All artists, cultural practitioners, designers, future thinkers, innovators and enthusiasts are invited to apply by March 31st using the online form.

Since 2008 Localize has been opening up urban spaces for contemporary art in Potsdam with a changing thematic focus. Localize is an urban laboratory, platform for collaborative experiments and a creative innovator in the city. Localize e. V. is a non-profit association. The festival is developed by a team of students, cultural practitioners and creatives.

Opening TONIGHT March 4, 18-21h @artclaims: IVONNE THEIN: TECHNO BODIES II

Ivonne Thein's artworks reflect the current body images of a digital culture that is currently undergoing fundamental change due to extensive technologization. In recent years, the use of automated, non-human recordings and artificial intelligence (AI) has placed the question of imitating nature anew, and thus the relationship between art, technology, and the body, at the center of artistic as well as design discourses. New technologies are now profoundly shaping both the physical body and its virtual representations in the visual culture of our time. What evidence do the abstracting body landscapes generated by Ivonne Thein in cooperation with an AI provide us? Since these fragmented body images fascinate and disturb us in equal measure through their surreal syntheses and digital abstractions.

Ivonne Thein first trained an AI with stock photography of diverse body images. (Re-)combination, mutation, and selection of forms occur automatically in the deep layers of the artificial neural network, which the artist uses as a non-human collaborator in the following image processing. The AI thereby imitates role models and simulates creativity, which until now has been considered an intellectual activity and outstanding human ability. In the end, the body images generated by the AI come intrusively close to us in the exhibition space since they no longer remain pure data sets on flat screens (for example, as prints or video loops) but are also concretized by the artist as silicone sculpture in the real space of the exhibition. In this way, they objectify the human body as raw material for manipulations and modeling of all kinds and question the new relationship between the forms of nature, their pictorial imitation, and the technologized artistic form languages of our time. In it, Ivonne Thein deals impressively and in a transdisciplinary way with the current concept of body image in the age of cultures of digitality.
