The proximity of a park, the nearby banks of the Spree river, a former public bathing house and records of 1920s homosexual venues in the bear pit’s neighbourhood on Wallstraße and Inselstraße suggest the site's previous use as a cruising area. Public restrooms or urinals, such as those in Köllnischer Park, were already documented in Berlin around 1900 as anonymous meeting places for homosexuals in "Berlins Drittes Geschlecht"
(Berlin's Third S*x), published in 1904 by the doctor and sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld.

Emma Wolf-Haugh is a visual artist, educator and writer based in Dublin and Berlin and working internationally. Emma’s work is shaped by economic necessity, engaging forms of recycling, thrift and ephemera that result in soft modularity, wild archiving, and performative intervention, posing questions about value, accumulation, and authorship. They sees a cultural centring of thrift as part of a tradition of q***r-working class vernacular and ethics, promiscuous and adept at working within limitations. Their pedagogical and publishing work posits the imagination as a political tool with radical potential that can exist and erupt anywhere and at anytime. Their work is often collaborative generating forms of temporary collectivity, intent on the erotic and energetic capacity of brief encounter. Emma’s work occupies many different sites, spaces and relations including exhibition, performance, filmmaking, publishing, writing, disruptive pedagogy, friendship and solidarity, elements that often get messy together in long term projects.

A constellation of flags and clothes for q***r cruisers by Emma Wolf-Haugh reinterprets the central hall of Bärenzwinger, claiming and indexing sites for q***r pleasures, interweaving facts and speculations.
“Myth Sick, a new chapter of “S*x in Public” gathers together and recounts shards of historical possibility. The work makes space for counter architectural-historical narratives inflecting the overriding presence of cis-male bodies as privileged occupants of public space throughout history and into our present day. Myth Sick proposes that communities of transitional kinfolk have been repurposing ph***ic 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. Myth Sick glimpses the lesser known tales of le***an bears, pleasure gardens of inversion, Haarlust Journal and the Trans Sailor Boys Club (TSBC).
S*x in Public is a collaborative encounter between shared practices of q***r world making, towards the blossoming of shameless q***r desire. The works perform a repositioning of public and semi-public space and architecture in relation to the non-reproductive pleasures of getting off.” – Emma Wolf-Haugh
The production of Flags for Q***r Cruisers, Myth Sick, 2021 was assisted by C. Clement.

The exhibition »deep states« explores the emotive backgrounds of conspiracy narratives in a place - the Köllnischer Park – that itself was once (in 1825) administered by the Masonic lodge called “Zu den drei Weltkugeln” (“To the three globes”). By designing the park to include an orangery, a temple, a pyramid and a labyrinth, the lodge members created a mysterious atmosphere that can still be felt at Bärenzwinger today. In the context of the exhibition, the unusual interior of the former bear pit has been transformed into a multi-layered labyrinth in which critical approaches towards knowledge are interwoven with affective images.

The ZUGANG collective (Bruno Siegrist, Ada Kopaz, Can Kurucu, Tama Ruß) presents the route of conspiracy theories from online platforms to the streets of major cities in Germany. Their video installation Beziehungsweisen (English: Relationalities; 2021) shows an excerpt from their long-term examination of the “corona demonstrations". Through a compilation of film and sound recordings from the protests against the Covid-19 containment measures, the installation reflects on the emergence of a new movement and the community behind it.

Alternative ways of acquiring knowledge and criticising the existing socio-political status quo can be traced in the spatial installation Future Shores (2021) by Kristina Paustian. The installation leads visitors through a world of dreams, riddles and mathematics. Paustian's work focuses on the life and work of Velimir Khlebnikov, a Russian futurist, poet and mathematician who believed he had discovered a method with which he could predict historical events, and hereby prevent future wars and catastrophes.

This week we're introducing Lukas Liese. Lukas Liese studied free art/sculpture at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin and at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, USA. In his sculptural work, Liese mainly uses stone. Over the years, he has created a wide variety of works that have this material in common. Through the presence of stone in space, its geological properties and its significance in art and cultural history, Liese builds up an interaction between the content of his works and the material. In 2018, Liese was awarded the Mart Stam Prize for his graduation work at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin. In 2020, Liese received the Elsa Neumann Scholarship from the State of Berlin.

The proximity of a park, the nearby banks of the Spree river, a former public bathing house and records of 1920s homosexual venues in the bear pit’s neighbourhood on Wallstraße and Inselstraße suggest the site's previous use as a cruising area. Public restrooms or urinals, such as those in Köllnischer Park, were already documented in Berlin around 1900 as anonymous meeting places for homosexuals in "Berlins Drittes Geschlecht" (Berlin's Third S*x), published in 1904 by the doctor and sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld. 1: Information pamphlet 2: The original German edition of Berlin’s Third S*x (1904) ~ Exhibition “Into the Drift and Sway” 2 December 2021 - 20 February 2022 With Christa Joo Hyun D’Angelo, Constantin Hartenstein, Lindsay Lawson, Lotte Meret, Lucas Odahara and Emma Wolf-Haugh Exhibition and events curated by Malte Pieper & Lusin Reinsch Events co-curated Lara Huesmann & Annika Maus Production Ulrike Riebel
Emma Wolf-Haugh is a visual artist, educator and writer based in Dublin and Berlin and working internationally. Emma’s work is shaped by economic necessity, engaging forms of recycling, thrift and ephemera that result in soft modularity, wild archiving, and performative intervention, posing questions about value, accumulation, and authorship. They sees a cultural centring of thrift as part of a tradition of q***r-working class vernacular and ethics, promiscuous and adept at working within limitations. Their pedagogical and publishing work posits the imagination as a political tool with radical potential that can exist and erupt anywhere and at anytime. Their work is often collaborative generating forms of temporary collectivity, intent on the erotic and energetic capacity of brief encounter. Emma’s work occupies many different sites, spaces and relations including exhibition, performance, filmmaking, publishing, writing, disruptive pedagogy, friendship and solidarity, elements that often get messy together in long term projects.
