NEVER AGAIN, NIE WIEDER?
Somari is one of the Ukrainian artists who found refuge at SomoS in March. Over the last week, Somari along with 3 other street artists from Ukraine and Belarus painted a large mural on the facade of a building at Falckensteinstraße 48, 10997. The diptych style mural stands over 5 stories tall, and reflects their feelings and personal experience of the Russian Invasion of Ukraine. From the U1 and U3 trains passing through U Schlesisches Tor station you can see the mural, make sure to look out for it next time you pass through!

Kordula Horn - SpielRäume

Artist Statement: "Creative leeways, or the opportunity to imagine the city differently than it is. Avoidance of narrowing public spaces, discovering multilayered utilization. In the process – with uncommon solutions – reacting to the constantly changing conditions of the “Dense City Of Diversity,” creatively participating in the process. Is human or capital at the center of the city? Where do you stand?"

Klaus W. Eisenlohr – Lithuanian Rhapsody

Artist statement: "Lithuanian Rhapsody" was conceived during a 2021 artist residency in Rokiskis, Lithuania. Its two screens create virtual panoramas of different neighborhoods: the historic village, soviet style residential areas, and new single-family houses. They are complemented with two screens showing images of young people from Rokiskis Cultural Center who perform in the urban space, relating habitat with joyful uses of space."

Artist Statement: "How does photography change, when we have a camera in our pocket 24/7? When we don‘t have to choose which photo to make because you can make them all? When the value of your photo is the same as a scrap of paper where your write down a fleeting idea (or your grocery shopping)? When the photo gallery on your smartphone becomes your external memory? Is this still photography?"

Monika Lache – Hinterm Zaun – Innensichten

Artist Statement: "When you are out and about in cities, small towns, and villages, you see fences that mark people’s private space. People live behind the fences, but how do they live? What do they do? What moves them? What expectations and hopes do they have in life? My foto series "Behind the Fence – Inside Views" combines photographs of fences with a young person’s diary entries – dreams of life."

Claus Koellner – I Fancy Red

Artist Statement: "The color red is perceived in the most different ways. Red can appear to be vivid or arousing, but also exhilarating and aggressive. My collection of images seeks to display the color red in its different shades and expressions. The possibilities of digital photography and editing were used in varying ways."

Irene Mauch - Nature as Concept / Natur als Idee

Artist Statement: Like windows showing what is locked out, photographs can connect us with views otherwise not here. In the work Nature as Concept („Naturals Idee“), photographs are used both: as a medium for absent natural views and as objects which can be framed, arranged, painted on. In this way, the installation shows not only the original „memories“ of natural sights but also the process of „thinking“ about them.

Irene Mauch's work is on view in the current photography exhibition "Beyond the Frame. It gathers the results of a one-year project course led by Klaus W. Eisenlohr at the Photocentrum of Gilberto-Bosques-Volkshochschule Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg.

Sebastian Schmidt - Mutterliebe / Karla und Elliot, 2019

Artist Statement:
"In my photo project "Mutterliebe," I talk about motherly love regarding life with children with severe mental disabilities. How does it work, how do mothers manage to care for their children for years, to love them? How does a mother look back on 16, 18 or 24 years in which the state of emergency is normality: hospital stays, battles with bureaucracy, rejection by society, family that breaks away, or marriages that fail. I aim to give visibility to these women and their stories."
