ISSAC JULIEN ( 2022)
Once Again ...
(Statues Never Die)

Newly commissioned immersive film installation for the Barnes Foundation's centennial in Philadelphia, exploring the contested presence of African sculptures in western museums

The exhibition finished September 4, 2022 and I am happy I caught it 💥💥💥

"[...] The exhibition examines the display and significance of African material culture in western art museums. Imagining his installation as a form of what he calls “poetic restitution,” Julien also alludes to contemporary restitution debates, specifically as they relate to works looted in the Benin Expedition of 1897, in which British troops destroyed the centuries-old Kingdom of Benin. Once Again … (Statues Never Die) joins contemporary debates around colonialism and the display of African material culture in European museums with recourse to the 1953 film by Chris Marker and Alain Resnais, Les statues meurent aussi (Statues Also Die), a groundbreaking work that was banned soon after its debut in France for its anti-colonial sentiment, but which raised important questions about the acquisition and display of African works in European museums. Combining an original script written by Isaac Julien and Martina Klich with recently discovered archival footage from the 1970 film You Hide Me by Nii Kwate Owoo, which drew attention to African material culture stored in the British Museum, Once Again … (Statues Never Die) engages with current restitution debates."

From the press texts of the Barnes' Foundation.

Afghan and non-Afghan artists present in The Other Kabul. Remains of the Garden, Afghan and non-Afghan artists present works with poetic power that defy Western clichés about Afghanistan. Rather, the exhibition is dedicated to the sensuality and beauty symbolically reflected in the microcosm of the garden, insisting that another life can be, will be, possible.

The Other Kabul is a guest exhibition of the Treibsand association, curated by Susann Wintsch in collaboration with the Kunstmuseum Thun.
(Text: Kunstmuseum Thun)

Parastou Forouhar is an internationally acclaimed artist associated with House of Taswir since 2007. She was a participant in the Taswir exhibition at Gropius Bau Berlin and is a member / participant artist in Meine Kleine Mnemosyne since its inception 2015.

The works are mesmerizing - we look forward to seeing them in the flesh again 💚🔥💚

SILVINA DER-MEGUERDITCHIAN
Treasures (2015)

Central to this installation is a notebook handwritten by her great-grandmother, Hripsime Tobdjian, a survivor of the Armenian genocide who fled to Argentina in 1915. The notebook contains 350 remedies and recipes based mostly on Anatolian plants, giving us a glimpse into the ingredients used to treat the most common diseases of the time and the extensive herbal knowledge Tobdjian acquired in her hometown, Aintab (now called Gaziantep).

Der-Meguerditchian addresses the knowledge of botany and herbal medicine that many Neuköllners have brought with them from their homelands and explores the question of what happens to this knowledge when a community loses its connection to the land where it was produced.

MEINE KLEINE MNEMOSYNE had the privilege of showing this work "Treasure" at her art space cabinet from 2015 to 2022. The work was first shown at the Armenian Pavillon at the 56th Venice Biennial in which the Armenian Pavillon won the Golden Lion.

Hard to believe - Rest in peace and power dear Fulya Erdemci 🍀🍀🍀

Çok sevgili dostumuz Fulya Erdemci’yi kaybetmenin derin üzüntüsünü yaşıyoruz. Güncel sanatta kamusal alana odaklanan çalışmalarıyla biricik sergiler üreten Erdemci aynı zamanda 1994-2000 yılları arasında İstanbul Bienali’nin direktörlüğünü yürütmüş, 54. Venedik Bienali Uluslararası Sanat Sergisi'nde (2011) Türkiye Pavyonu’nun ve 13. İstanbul Bienali’nin (2013) küratörlüğünü üstlenmişti. 2002 yılında kamusal alana yayılan İstanbul Yaya Sergileri’ni başlatmış, 2008’den 2012’ye kadar Amsterdam'daki SKOR Sanat ve Kamusal Alan Vakfı'nın direktörü olmuş, Cappadox Festivali Çağdaş Sanat Programı gibi unutulmaz sergiler gerçekleştirmişti. Eylül 2020’den itibaren Danimarka’da, kamusal alanda sanata yoğunlaşan KØS müzesinin küratörlüğünü yapıyordu. Zarif ruhuyla birlikte çalıştığı herkesin hayatına dokunan işler üreten Erdemci’yi çok özleyeceğiz. Ailesine, tüm sevenlerine sabır diliyoruz.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend Fulya Erdemci. Erdemci was a unique exhibition maker with a distinctive focus on public domain in contemporary art. She also took on the directorship of the Istanbul Biennial from 1994 to 2000, and curated the Pavilion of Turkey at the 54th International Art Exhibitions in 2011 as well as the 13th Istanbul Biennial in 2013. In 2002, she initiated Istanbul Pedestrian Exhibitions, which spread throughout public space, and was the director of SKOR Foundation for Art and Public Domain from 2015 to 2018. She realised benchmark exhibitions such as the Cappadox Contemporary Art Programme. Since 2020, she has been curating the KØS museum in Denmark, dedicated to art in public spaces. We will miss Erdemci and her kind soul immensely, and keep appreciating her works that touched the lives of many who accompanied her. We wish patience to her family and friends.

Art meets philosophy and culture: Adalet, our CCP Country Representative for Iraq brings everything together. Since 2020 he organises the Iraqi Alumni network and is always eager to meet up and enhance the network. In 2013 he was a CCP Fellow at the project “ha’atelier” by Taswir Projects in Berlin – a collaboration on philosophy, art and cosmopolitics. “I met so many people from the arts and culture scene in Berlin as well as other CCP Fellows. With most of them I still keep in touch.” After his Fellowship he also continued the collaboration with ha’atelier taking part in talks in Berlin and by inviting German counterparts to visit Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan.
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.

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. #contemporaryart #artinberlin #artintimesofcorona In collaboration with: GALERIE KORNFELD & Taswir Projects.
“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. Image: Sherif El-Azma, Cairo Out of Perspective, 2009, installation (detail).

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.

House of Taswir shows Meret Oppenheim at Artam Antik Palace in Istanbul #HouseofTaswir #MeretOppenheim #ArtamAntikPalace Taswir Projects "Wednesday Society. The Couch of Meret O." Homage to Beral Madra. In collaboration with the 16th International Istanbul Biennial Artists: Meret Oppenheim, Rebecca Horn, Tony Chakar, Natela Iankoshvili, Gülçin Aksoy "Wednesday Society. The Couch of Meret O." takes place at Artam Antik Palace, a nineteenth-century Ottoman mansion in Istanbul's popular Maçka neighborhood that opens its doors to international positions in contemporary art. Addressing what Freud called the "dark continent" of female desire, the exhibition presents works of the legendary Swiss artist Meret Oppenheim and Georgian artist Natela Iankoshvili for the first time in Istanbul, next to a number of rarely seen works of Rebecca Horn from the Collection Peter Raue in Berlin. "Wednesday Society" exhibits parts of the digital archive of Beral Madra, curator of the first and second Istanbul Biennial, paying homage to a pioneering female contemporary figure in Istanbul's art scene and beyond. "Wednesday Society" combines digital and analog, private and public, holy and profane formats of white cube and museum, living room and house of wisdom, psychoanalytic chamber and Madonna's corner. The exhibition's inspiration is derived from a setting usually not associated with the visual arts, the gathering of intellectuals in Sigmund Freud's private reception room at Berggasse 19 in Vienna: (male) friends and colleagues convened there in the midst of Freud's idiosyncratic collection of ancient Middle Eastern artworks on Wednesdays to discuss new concepts, methods, and ideas related to the emerging field of psychoanalysis. Our "Wednesday Society" is the feminized version of that setting, an emerging place of power, exploring the "dark continent" of irregular, nonphallic, dispersed, poetic, and imaginary ways of thinking. "Wednesday Society" explores the spatial order of dreamwork, poetry, caress, and diplomatic coups. Centrally staged, the exhibition hosts a pop-up nineteenth-century salon, an in-situ scene in which the curator hosts special guests at regular hours in private conversation on her couch that are open to the public with two scribes projecting mural writings on the walls.
