We are very happy that Sherif El-Azma's work "Oh Father of Youths" which we presented at our last exhibition, "Naked Cities" in collaboration with House of Taswir will become part of the collection of ZKM in Karlsruhe!

We wish all our supporters a happy new year and look forward to see you again soon (hopefully).

Thank you for coming to our exhibitions and events last year with all the challenges this entailed!

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".

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

The exhibition is the third part of the project "Where Have All the Jasmines Gone", which will run until February 2021 and is supported by Hauptstadtkulturfonds.

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.

Opening Friday, 18 September, 6 - 9 PM.

Thanks to everyone that attended our screening last weekend! In front of a small audience, we once again showed the film 'Erased - Ascent of the Invisible' (2018) by Ghassan Halwani. For this occasion, the film was introduced by our curator Charlotte Bank.

This week is the final chance to see our currently running exhibition, After/images. Our opening hours are Friday - Sunday, 4 - 7 pm - don't miss out!

08/07/2020

Khaled Barakeh’s 'Untitled Images' (2014) use images taken from various online sources of wounded, dead and grieving people in different war locations in Syria. The artist has cut out the figures of the victims, leaving the space blank and white. The white space becomes a metaphor not only for the irreplaceable loss of loved ones during war, but also for the very impossibility to fully grasp the reality of the violent event at the time it is happening.

We are showing this series by Khaled Barakeh as part of our current exhibition, After/images, along with works by Chaza Charafeddine, Sadik Kwaish Alfraji and Ghassan Halwani. Open Friday - Sunday, 4 - 7 pm, until July 19.

The film will be shown in Arabic with English subtitles.

03/07/2020

Chaza Charafeddine’s photographic series 'The Unbearable Lightness of Witnessing' (2012) is, according to the artist an “homage to Francis Bacon and to the victims of the Syrian revolution who died under torture in Syrian jails”. Trying to find a way to express the horror of daily witnessing images of atrocities in Syria, Charafeddine created a series of performative photographs using different colours to create distorted images of her own face, evocative of Bacon’s paintings, but also of the wounds of torture victims.

The series is shown in our exhibition After/images, open Friday - Sunday, 4 - 7 pm, until July 19.
