A bright pink, lavender and other variations of purple and red welcome the visitors at Bärenzwinger 🌸

The silk fabric used for the weaving as well as the yarn on the loom have been plant-dyed on site, using only natural materials like cabbage, red beets, onion peel and lemon.
The weaving relates to a map drawn by Claudia Hill and Jared Gradinger and placed on the loom. The weavers are invited to follow their intuition when weaving with the pattern on the map, moving with it or away from it.

Tomorrow's final Co-Weaving session (05.05.) from 5 to 7 pm will be hosted by Claudia Hill and the Bärenzwinger team.

Please come tested if you want to join the weaving. Thank you!

Co-Weaving 🌾

Weaving Roots features two out of three existing carpet pairs that have been collectively hand-woven at Claudia Hill's high loom. One of them is ‘Just Trest‘, created by Claudia Hill, Jared Gradinger and the Impossible Forest at Uferstudios, Berlin, the latter providing material for weaving, like grass.

Tomorrow's Co-Weaving session from 5 to 7 pm will be hosted by the Bärenzwinger team.

Please come tested if you want to join the weaving. Thank you!

Sneak peek into the Bärenzwinger garden, initiated by Jared Gradinger and co-created with Nature 🌿

The garden is a living sculpture whose movement is both perceptible and imperceptible, and which appeals to diverse senses. It develops a life of its own and at the same time depends on care and attention, it unfolds and remains unfinished. It moves between decay and growth, it is a cycle, both physical and metaphorical, a cycle that influences and changes the environment and ecology of the Bärenzwinger.

Come by, pause and have a seat on the bench made of cherrywood, and see how the garden changes with the seasons and grows over time.

Introducing 🧡 Claudia Hill is a Berlin-based interdisciplinary artist working with performance art, costume and stage design, textile materials and somatic practices. Her artistic practice is based on her deep-rooted relationship with textiles and crafts made by women. She explores collective ways of communicating through multi-sensory experiences, as described in her book Social Fabric Earth Return. The book is published by BOM DIA BOA TARDE BOA NOITE.

Hill has a background in contemporary dance and fashion design. Her collections have been presented internationally, including in Japan and New York, where she lived for many years. She has designed costumes for choreographer William Forsythe and The Wooster Group and has worked frequently with choreographer Meg Stuart. In addition, her work increasingly focuses on the healing potential of textile objects and transformative rituals.

Weekly co-weaving sessions are happening until May 5 at Bärenzwinger.

Next week, on March 24, we will open our upcoming show »Weaving Roots« with Claudia Hill and Jared Gradinger 🌱

With the beginning of spring, »Weaving Roots« brings together two artistic individuals and practices who explore the idea of the garden and its social function as a place of community building in different ways. Weaving and roots, interweaving and rooting are thereby experienced as concrete actions.

Jared Gradinger co-creates a garden that will blossom and flourish on the outdoor terraces of the Bärenzwinger. In collaboration with Nature as a partner, choreographer Jared Gradinger creates a participatory place for development, participation and transformation. Claudia Hill brings a 125-year-old high loom for tapestry weaving to the Bärenzwinger. The loom acts as a social sculpture, a site for networking and thus not only as a production instrument of textile material, but above all as a physical medium of communication.

Come and join the artists and curators for an opening reception between 6 and 9 pm.
We're looking forward to seeing you!

Happening today at 7 pm! After the stormy weekend, we’re happy to finally present:

A Side / B Side – Alizée Lenox and Els Vandeweyer play Lindsay Lawson's Organum

A concert in two acts divided by a pause for drinks and chatter on the outdoor terraces of Bärenzwinger.

Lindsay Lawson's Organum, part of the exhibition »Into the drift and sway«, is a sculptural, architectural, and sound installation of over 200 wind chimes hanging from the security spikes on the perimeter moat encircling the Bärenzwinger. Divided in two halves, just like the grounds themselves, each side of Organum is tuned to eight octaves of a musical scale.
Artist and musician Alizée Lenox will perform electric guitar while surrounded by and responding to the Organum. Experimental vibraphonist Els Vandeweyer will apply an unconventional percussive technique to this watery and unwieldy instrument.

2G+ regulation is valid for your visit. Please bring the proof of vaccination or recovery with you and a negative Antigen-test result (no older than 24 hrs), or a proof of third ("booster") vaccination.

Sex in Public – Myth Sick

The zine by Emma Wolf-Haugh is now available in the exhibition, complementing the ‘Saint Suzie the Bear’ tapestry currently on view at Bärenzwinger as part of “Into the drift and sway”. Myth Sick gathers together and recounts shards of historical possibility, glimpsing into the lesser known tales of lesbian bears and pleasure gardens of inversion. Myth Sick proposes that communities of transitional kinfolk have been repurposing phallic and faggoty architectures for decades in the service of erotic ritual, communal pleasure and the collective healing of trauma, posing a breach to hegemonies that position the body, sexuality, and space as arenas of political management.

Come by until February 27 and grab your copy.

Exhibition on view until February 27 (prolonged)!

The exhibition “Into the drift and sway” borrows its title from a short story by gay rights activist and artist David Wojnarowicz, recalling memories of cruising and anonymous intimate encounters in urban landscapes, published in the collection of stories “Memories that smell like gasoline” (1992). These recollections are marked by ambivalences. Often a transformation is at play – public spaces, industrial buildings or abandoned locations are turned into spaces of pleasure or violence. Queer spaces are also contested spaces, disappearing due to surveillance measures, policing, gentrification, and changing ways of living a “queer” life.
“Into the drift and sway” marks the fourth part of the annual programme Bricolage, proposing a series of explorations into the less visible present and history of the Bärenzwinger, suggesting to cruise various scenarios, destabilise previous definitions to create narratives beyond the Bärenzwinger’s dominant legacy as the home of the heraldic city bears of Berlin.
