KN - Raum für Kunst im Kontext

KN - Raum für Kunst im Kontext KN is a space for artists, musicians, filmmakers, curators, critics, activists, and friends, located at the intersection of art and its contexts.

KN is a project space for artists, critics, activists, and friends, located at the intersection of art and its political and social contexts. KN provides shared working space for creative members of the community, a gallery space for visual and interdisciplinary work, and performance space for events. KN is not a traditional gallery. Rather, our goal is to foster the creation of a meeting place where traditional creative roles are dissolved, where the culture industry is challenged, and where vital new concepts of art-making are imagined and shared.

Dear friends: we look forward to seeing you today for the closing of "Heaven Is a Place Where Nothing Ever Happens" from 14:00 - 18:00. This will be a particularly special finissage as it marks the end of our exhibition programming at KN's Skalitzer Str. location.

We look forward to celebrating this wonderful show and these past three years in Kreuzberg with you!

Dear KN supporters, friends, members and artists,

We are sad to announce that due to forces beyond our control, we will be permanently leaving our project space in Skalitzer Strasse 68, effective early January 2018. We have had to suspend our 2018 programming at this time. This news comes as a shock and surprise to our members and the artists we support.

KN: Space for Art in Context has been a non-profit, volunteer-run project space in Berlin since 2014. Originally founded in Schoneberg, this is the second time the Berlin real estate market has affected our physical space. We will be using the next few months to regroup and decide what future form KN: Space for Art in Context e. V. will take. We will have a final closing party in January, in the meantime please join us for this year’s remaining events:

Elizabeth McTernan’s solo exhibition Heaven Is A Place Where Nothing Ever Happens: Finissage and curator talk. Saturday Dec. 9 from 14 - 18
Reading with Megan Fernandes and Bennett Sims. Saturday Dec 16, 19 hours

We want to thank everyone who has supported and visited us these last few years in Kreuzberg, and we look forward to continuing our mission to provide a platform where vital new concepts of art-making are imagined and shared.

Sincerely,
Your KN Team

We watched the solstice sun hover over the horizon at midnight. We understood we were standing on a giant ball, peering over the North Pole. In this land without night, we made an empty square on the ground and stared at it, hoping it would illuminate a truth about the Arctic. An attempt to square the circle.

Kika Jonsson and Hallveig Ágústsdóttir are two artists who utilize feedback loops in their artistic practice. A feedback loop is an effect where a produced output is affected and informed by it’s creation process. Informed by these principles, Hallveig makes drawings based off of her graphic scores. Her mark-making builds the sounds into a drawing and drawings into sound as illustrated in Hallveig’s ‘fusion’ series which was inspired by Lucien Goethals' composition by the same name, the rhythmic abstractions of the ‘fusion’ series are vestigial remnants of the auditory. Hallveig’s elements of improvisation contrast with Jonsson’s stark and representational Vor den Alpen series, which are drawings based on a single photograph taken in the Jungfrau region of the Alps. The drawings depict the same peak, in different mediums and sizes. Via repetitive copying of the oversaturated image of a mountain, Jonsson questions the idea of the sublime within imagery. Both artists subvert the definition of refraction (a measurement of the focusing characteristics of an eye or eyes) through methods of purposeful unfocusing.

Last chance to see “Refractions”: Thursday from 5-7 pm.
“Translation can also mean translocation, traversal, trans. For the September 14th opening of Refractions, the artist collective leo performed “letícia,” read from a text that has been corrected by two native English speakers. The performance aimed to deconstruct the authority language holds on knowledge, referencing his position and language of Portuguese. Pairing with this work, Vanessa Gravenor’s Learning German with Trauma Words shows a video loop of 3 dimensional renderings of a German vocabulary list. The list was created by Gravenor in order to undergo PTSD, EMDR therapy in German while living in Berlin to desensitize herself from experienced bodily violence. When one asserts an American whiteness on top of a perceptively authoritarian language, does one amplify the power of these referents? Can all language inevitably be instrumentalized to be a tool for power and metaphorical trench warfare?”
From the exhibition text

04/10/2017

The inherent shortcomings of language are immanent in translation, when one language is ill-equipped to say what another expresses with ease. In her essay, “Variations on the Right to Remain Silent,” Anne Carson describes language as “a gigantic and cacophonous cliché.” Taking these ideas as departure points, Anne Posten, a literary translator working in German and English, produces a pairing of texts titled Hamfist: a καταστοφή, using methods inspired by Carson. Working with vocabulary derived solely from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Posten has translated, or retold, the opening lines of Goethe’s Faust.

Carleen Coulter piece A sentence on...,the first part o f a series exploring the connection between collective memory and monuments. This piece focuses on the relocation of Soviet-era Hungarian monuments to Memento Park, an open air museum located on the outskirts of Budapest. The project considers claims of ownership such as: who controls a monument narrative; what happens to a monument that has been removed from its original context? Does it become an even more powerful totem, or a neutered relic? Both Coulter and Posten are transposing images or words from their original contexts, asking what happens in this recontextualization.

Anne Posten, “Hamfist: a καταστοφή,” 2017, mixed media, 50 x 40 cm
