Héla Ammar is a Tunisian-based visual artist. In addition to her training in visual art, she holds a Phd in Law. Recurring themes of her work are the stakes of memory, identity and marginal communities. In her series Body Talks (2018), she shows portraits of Tunisian political activists. While the portraits are anonymized through the use of brightly colored scarves, nothing is lost of their self-confident bearing.

Héla Ammar, Body Talks: Salah III (2018).

Shown in the exhibition "Bodies That Matter", 3 - 18 July 2021, Art-Lab Berlin

Tagreed Darghouth uses abstract impressionism and impasto layers applied with gestural brushstrokes to tackle topics concerning structural violence, popular culture, and the marginalised. In her series Floral Dummies (2020) and Venuses and Aphrodites (2020), she explores ideals of beauty through the ages. Dagrouth’s work has been shown at numerous international exhibition spaces, including the Royal College of Art in London in 2011, Rose Issa Project, London, UK (2012); Thin Skin: Six Artists from Beirut at Taymour Grahne Gallery in New York in 2014; and c Paris, France in 2017.

Marwa Arsanios is an artist, filmmaker and researcher who considers particularly perspectives on gender relations, urbanism and industrialisation. Her video work Who’s Afraid of Ideology (2019), follows self-organized projects by women who experiment with alternative forms of social organization.

Ein fliegender Teppich in Neukölln!

Our co-director Salah Saouli is showing his installation "Flying Carpet" at this year's 48 hours Nukölln art festival:

https://www.maenner.media/regional/blu/ein-fliegender-teppich-in-neukoelln/

The flying carpet represents a legendary and magical means of transportation in Eastern tales, an object that allows humans to travel through time and space unrestricted of normal conditions of travel. It appears as a way to leave one’s usual surroundings and gain the realm of the unreal and mythological, a key to “other spaces”, where alternative worlds can be imagined or envisioned, gardens or theatres of the imaginary.

Such alternative places, or heterotopias, seem to be a fundamental element of human culture, as they occur in every society, in a variety of forms. While Utopias represent the ideal of a given society and do not refer to an existing place, these “other spaces” can well be real places, rooted within reality and yet outside of it. Like a fairground, a circus, a theatre or the overgrown gardens of childhood memories, they offer an escape from the profane, allowing imagination to take the lead and flow, to follow paths that lead away from the logic of our rigidly organized society.
The Flying Carpet of Salah Saouli functions within a new context. Situated in a closed space, it lends itself to a metaphorical reading of the magical travel. The re-location here takes place not in real time and space, but rather in the minds of the visitor.

Having witnessed the city of his youth, Beirut, destroyed by a long and senseless civil war, and its re-building leaving the majority of the city’s population alienated and bereft of their own history, Salah Saouli offers an invitation to escape from the present and its state of alienation even if only for a moment and regain a territory of connectedness and re-imagination. Stepping into the installation from a busy Berlin street (a city that is currently witnessing massive transformation itself), and passing around the magical carpet, the visitor enters the second room of the installation with its images of Beirut, fragile and momentary, like fragments of a dream or almost lost memories. But rather than merely representing itself, Beirut here appears as a metaphor for every city that is being transformed into a space of non-recognition for its citizens and whose real images seem located in these citizens’ mental archives rather than in reality. The visitor is invited to re-connect to his or her own memories, to re-imagine the lost space. Salah Saouli’s installation offers a moment to stand still, to breathe, a moment of reflection in which to re-think the contemporary processes of transformation of our cityscapes and from which we might exit with new approaches.

Being Syrian, Tammam Azzam’s works appear as reflections of the destruction of the towns and cities of Syria. But his cityscapes can actually be located anywhere, each city that has witnessed destruction through war and conflict or as a consequence of a natural catastrophe can be found in these images. Through their colours, they allow the viewer to imagine a new hope, a new life rising from the ruined walls.

As part of our current exhibition, Naked Cities, currently presented online.

Charlotte Bank in conversation with Shulamit Bruckstein

We are thrilled to be able to share this conversation between our curator Charlotte Bank and Shulamit Bruckstein, philosopher, curator and founder of House of Taswir.

In the conversation, they discuss the work Oh Father of Youths! (2009) by Sherif El-Azma, which addresses the grievances and problems of the Egyptian youth, that would lead to the revolutionary movement of Tahrir Square in 2011. This work was also part of the exhibition "Taswir" in Martin Gropius Bau, curated by Shulamit Bruckstein in 2009, and now shown in our current exhibition, Naked Cities.

For several years, Syrian artist Tammam Azzam has been creating images of urban landscapes, paintings and collages in an attempt to infuse his memories of destroyed Syrian cities with new life through vibrant colour.

“It is as if Cairo is my body, and my body is Cairo“.

For Sherif El-Azma, the city of Cairo is closely related to his own subjectivity and, inspired by psychogeography, takes on a particular, highly personal significance, which is reflected in his installation "Cairo Out of Perspective".

Sherif El-Azma’s installation consists of the video, "Oh Father of Youths!" and a series of maquettes showing different aspects of Cairo, "Cairo Out of Perspective". The work was created in 2009, one year before the onset of the “Arab Spring” and addresses some of the problems of the regions’ youth, which led to the widespread protests and upheavals.

In "Chalk Outlines", Rabih Mroué makes a very personal reading of war and terror, creating a different, subtle way of processing those atrocious events. Through some 200 drawings and collages as well as a video, the artist traces the recurring impressions of conflict, creating a homage to the phantom presence of the dead.

Rabih Mroué’s "Chalk Outlines" explores the artist’s ongoing resistance to ways that images of war are circulated and absorbed by the public. Taking images of dead bodies on the streets of Syrian cities found in newspapers as its starting point, Rabih Mroué has entered an intimate and meditative process, drawing the outline of the bodies and thus engaging with each case of a life lost.

At present we cannot open the space for regular viewing, due to the Corona restrictions in Berlin. But you can get an idea of the exhibition in this video:

In a new work produced for our current exhibition, Jeanno Gaussi reflects on the items one choses to carry along when fleeing violence or searching for a new life. Titled "Travelling Objects 1 - 6", the works share personal experiences through storytelling and the careful wrapping of objects.

Last chance this weekend! Come by on Friday - Sunday, 4 - 7 PM.

We are more than happy to present the works of Hanaa el Degham in our current exhibition, Re/visions.

Her ongoing project, Der Körper von Osiris (since 2016), is shown as an installation of images, collected objects and site-related fragments. Applying the ancient Egyptian legend of the goddess Isis’ search for the body of her husband Osiris as a metaphor, El Degham brings up her own and her generation’s search for Egypt’s soul and the attempt to understand the post-revolutionary condition of her country of origin.

Open this weekend, Friday - Sunday 4 - 7 PM.

Opening tomorrow!

In our latest exhibition, Re/visions, we will show among others a work from the series "Fragments" by Manaf Halbouni. In his work, Halbouni explores the leftovers of cultural expression and the liminal states between different ideologies and their effects on human beings caught in between. In "Fragments", pieces of a church window are shown as cultural fragments juxtaposed with concrete and steel.
