ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?

Un.Processed Realities (Niki Danai, Dimitris Tampakis) & Filippos Raskovic, coming all the way from Athens in order to transform Centrum into a Post-European Rage Room.

👉 performance & soft opening tomorrow at 7 pm
exhibition dates: 15-17 October

UN P R 18T (Un.Processed Realities) is a design studio, based between Athens and Tinos island, Greece. It was founded in 2018 by Niki Danai Chania & Dimitris Tampakis. Their motivation derives from common questions about the operation of the established system of production and exploitation of matter, around the culture of design, the consumer habits, the perception of reality, creation and destruction. Each of UN P R 18T’s works emerges as a ‘side-effect’ of the process, and not as an end in itself. It is a result of anthropological, sociological and geographical observation. Through their research, concepts, and visual communication, UN P R 18T aim to strengthen critical tools, both their own and each person’s engaged in their projects. unprocessedrealities.com

Filippos Raskovic (b. 1994, Athens) is a composer based in Athens. His work creates a sonic world; accidental and composed, recognisable and unexpected all at the same time. As a composer, he often creates interdisciplinary works in close collaboration with visual artists.

This is the final week for the exhibition Bethan Hughes, Hevea Act 2: Devil's Milk which remains open until this Sunday 27th of June, at Centrum.

👉 visiting hours from 13:00 to 19:00

Devil’s Milk aims to make unseen interconnections visible through a site-specific installation that interweaves research into the violent histories and plant-based origins of natural rubber with the manifold cultural roles it inhabits as a material of ritual and transformation. Temporary sculptures, machine-learning animation, and text are used to tell the story of how latex rubber and humanity are intimately intertwined, tapping into a broader narrative of how people manipulate, abstract and are ultimately tethered to the natural world.

Devil’s Milk is commissioned by Centrum and funded by the District Cultural Fund of Neukölln.

As part of the solo exhibition Bethan Hughes, Hevea Act 2: Devil's Milk, Centrum welcomes participants to a workshop held by the artist and researcher, Beth Hughes.

Exploring the botanical origins and material complexities of rubber – the substance that forms the focal point of Hughes’ ongoing research project, Hevea – a two-hour outdoor workshop will take place on Saturday 5 June, from 1 to 3 pm.

During the workshop we will embark on a short walk through the surrounding areas of Neukölln to identify and discuss the botanical features of latex-producing plants and the political, social, and cultural entanglements that lie behind rubber. The walk will conclude at the Prinzessinnengarten Kollektiv Berlin (Hermannstraße 99 - 105) where participants will be guided through a hands-on workshop in which the artist will share some of their production techniques, including basic methods of cutting and assembling sheet latex and latex dipping, before they have the chance to experiment with the materials and make their own creations.

The workshop is free to attend but limited to 10 participants.
If you would like to reserve a place, please contact us at [email protected]

Warm thanks to everyone who came to our soft opening yesterday evening. It was a pleasure to be together again in the real world.

🔥 Centrum is excited to announce the upcoming solo exhibition Hevea Act 2: Devil's Milk, by Bethan Hughes, one of the artists that were selected during our last Open Call. We open our doors again on May 27th at 6pm. 🔥

👉 Please make sure to book a free slot in advance.

Artist and researcher Bethan Hughes creates installations which combine forms of animation, sculpture, print, research and writing. She is interested in how the biological and bodily—that which is sensual, unruly and decaying—is interwoven with and transformed by modes of technological, commercial and industrial processing.

Her latest project, Hevea, is an ongoing investigation into the complex relationship between natural rubber—a vegetal substance bound to the rise of capitalism, modernity and imperialism—and humanity. Unfolding over a series of acts which merge archival research with machine-learning animation, print and sculpture, Hevea tells a story of how rubber creates a flexible continuum between past and future, nature and culture, ritual and function.

The exhibition Bethan Hughes, Hevea Act 2: Devil's Milk is curated by Jorgina Stamogianni and supported by the district cultural fund Neukölln.

Konstantinos Doumpenidis - The Fascist Virus (2020), 5’39’’

In the video "The Fascist Virus" Konstantinos Doumpenidis combines film material from N**i Germany commenting on the use of Symbols and the Occult in the Third Rich, while juxtaposing footage from pagan and mystical practices of today. Contemplating on the evolution of Eco-fascism and its current manifestations, The Fascist Virus is a dystopian fairy-tale about a history that tends to repeat itself.

The video is part of the homonymous solo exhibition which opened at Centrum on October 29th, but had to close its doors shortly after, following the protocols established by the local authorities for the combat of COVID-19.

For those who have requested to visit the exhibition, we would like to offer the possibility of limited private viewings until December 18th in accordance with current hygiene measures and restrictions. If you would like to book an appointment please send us an email at [email protected]

“Afterhours” is a ghost project consisting of a series of video works which are being shown unannounced between May and October 2020 through the glass façade of Centrum, overlooking Reuterstraße. Perceived as an urban oasis or a dream-like moment disrupting the linear nature of reality, the project comes alive during the late hours of the night. The viewing is based exclusively on chance encounters.
Participating artists: Monira Al Qadiri, Magdalena Fischer, Elise Guillaume, Linda Lamignan, Kosmas Nikolaou, Damir Očko, Larissa Sansour

Afterhours at Centrum

It was late. The streets were empty and the city was quiet. You were walking home almost half asleep. And there it was, a pulsating light reflecting on the pavement, a strange sound coming out of the glass facade. You slowed down. You stood still.

🥁 Three more days left to visit Centropia 🥁
Today the exhibition continues with the work of Eli Cortiñas, from 6 to 9pm

In Walls Have Feelings, Cortiñas delves into the ecology of objects and their appearance. The video opens onto the microcosm of dictators’ offices, presenting their architecture and interiors gradually unveiling the protagonists of the film: office rooms and walls, which contain, hide and reinforce invisible forms of power. Powers, which stemmed from industrial capitalism and political dictatorships, and which in turn influenced the current neoliberal-type of economic production. The video essay references also labor activities, echoing both present and past, corporeal and cognitive, forms of exploitation.

The artistic practice of Eli Cortiñas can be located within the appropriation tradition, using already existing cinema to de- and re-construct narratives according to new discourses. Her collage-like video essays and installations mix found imagery with documentary strategies. Her work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions at museums such as Museum Ludwig, Kunsthalle Budapest, CAC Vilnius, SCHIRN Kunsthalle, SAVVY Contemporary, Kunstraum Innsbruck, CAAM, Centre Pompidou, Museum of Modern Art Moscow, Kunstmuseum Bonn, MUSAC and elsewhere.
