Sea Soma  9 April - 1 May 2022 

soft opening on April 8th at 19:00

The sea sq**rt swims freely in the sea until it finds a place on a rock where it remains for the rest of its life. It digests its nervous system as it doesn’t need it in its static form. This creature provoked a theory that the brain evolved among species following the complexity of bodily movement. In flat encounters, humans experience each other through the infosphere and cycles of data. How do we return to the idea of touch as vision, which is known to be our earliest mode of interaction and feeling of the world? How does dance intertwine the inner and outer stimuli and how does skin become the interface between them? To be in society, one first needs to know how to be alone, perhaps think through liquidity, sea creatures, contradictions, changes. 

Sea Soma is a fictional ecosystem that strives to understand bodily intelligence, touchscreens, and the potential of water and digital objects as healers. It functions through cycles of media transformations, content generators, and mobile apps that capture dancers’ embodied knowledge. It encompasses exploration of the sea, dance, and UX design in the shape of transparent foils, phones, videos, text animations, touch-book, and online diagrams.

The project is a part of the ongoing practice Ecosystems - Rehearsing Collectivity (rehearsing-collectivity.com).

Created in collaboration with Ixchel Mendoza Hernandez, Stella Krämer Horta, Lukas Hondrich, Sarah Baron Brljević, Nina Gojić, Seán Marrett, Louise Borinski.

Dora Đurkesac is a Berlin-based author in the fields of design, contemporary dance, and new media art that she explores within temporary communities. Her work is shaped through archival, performative, and methodological research of social choreography, collective poetry, and hybrid ecosystems.

The project was funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media. Curated by Rachel Monosov.

Join us next Friday at Centrum (4 February, at 8 pm) for a unique audiovisual performance by Linda Lamignan, as part of Vorspiel / transmediale & CTM festival.

Through music, words, video and objects, the performance explores the notions of In-betweenness, Belonging, and Borders. Linda Lamignan uses beats and rhythms as tools for bringing the viewers on a journey. Singing becomes a way of storytelling.

Several objects that are used in the performance are linked to the commodities from the industry of Norway and Nigeria and function as objects of divination, dramatics and desire. Lamignan’s interest lies in the link between the exploitation of nature and racism. Connecting the dots between the western extraction of West African natural resources and the history of colonialism, they relate the history of the industrial materials to the history of brown bodies. Weaving projections and lights in, Lamgnan fills the space with fragments of memory, emotion and imagination. Altering surfaces with colored light and perceived depth, becomes a way to transform the room, and in turn transform ourselves.

🎙 Centrum participates at the Vorspiel Opening 2022 tomorrow evening, with a screening of Between Our Body and the Breathing Earth, a video work by Linda Lamignan, as a prelude to their upcoming performance on February 4th. More info on the performance will follow soon.

The works of visual and performance artist Linda Lamignan convey the sensation of being alien and of floating between dissimilar worlds. Through video, music, objects and performance, Lamignan explores notions related to wandering and diaspora, transformation and love. Taking an animistic approach, they are working with materials that are associated with industries in West Africa and Scandinavia. And by conjoining the history of these materials/raw articles to bodies with comparable experiences, Lamignan seeks to visualize new alternative frames of mind. Lamignan received their MFA degree at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen in 2019 and their BFA degree at the Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo.

Between Our Body and the Breathing Earth can be viewed on 21 January at the Betonhalle Cinema, between 20:50 - 21:10 (Gerichtstraße 35, 13347 Berlin)

✨See you there✨

✨Wrapping up with some highlights from our last events at Centrum, as the year is slowly coming to an end ✨

It is so difficult to transmit the energy and ambiance of this one! Warm thanks once again to Dimitris Tampakis, Niki Danai (a.k.a un.processed realities) and Filippos Raskovic who put us in the process of shattering our foundations inside the Post-European Rage Room 🔥🔥🔥

This weekend at Centrum: Join us for the performative lecture by Anastasios Logothetis | Xenogenetizing with Octopuses: An Occasion, on the 20th and 21st of November.
🐙 RSVP only, at [email protected] 🐙

Anastasios Logothetis (b. Sweden, 1979) lives and works in Berlin. His interests are based on strategies of refusal, the figure of a trickster, and the shapeshifter. As such, the methodology of making art becomes central in the understanding of his practice; it spans various mediums while being strongly informed by that character, as much as the lack of character, that he has usurped for a specific project. After leaving his medical studies at Brandeis University, Boston, Logothetis graduated with an MFA in sculpture from The Slade School of Fine Art, London, in 2008. His work has amongst others, been exhibited at Manifesta 11, Zurich; Färgfabriken, Stockholm; The Composing Rooms, Berlin; Andquestionmark, Stockholm; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm. In 2021 Logothetis received the INITIAL grant from Akademie der Künste.

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.

Dora Đurkesac  Sea Soma  9 April - 1 May 2022  soft opening on April 8th at 19:00 The sea sq**rt swims freely in the sea until it finds a place on a rock where it remains for the rest of its life. It digests its nervous system as it doesn’t need it in its static form. This creature provoked a theory that the brain evolved among species following the complexity of bodily movement. In flat encounters, humans experience each other through the infosphere and cycles of data. How do we return to the idea of touch as vision, which is known to be our earliest mode of interaction and feeling of the world? How does dance intertwine the inner and outer stimuli and how does skin become the interface between them? To be in society, one first needs to know how to be alone, perhaps think through liquidity, sea creatures, contradictions, changes.  Sea Soma is a fictional ecosystem that strives to understand bodily intelligence, touchscreens, and the potential of water and digital objects as healers. It functions through cycles of media transformations, content generators, and mobile apps that capture dancers’ embodied knowledge. It encompasses exploration of the sea, dance, and UX design in the shape of transparent foils, phones, videos, text animations, touch-book, and online diagrams. The project is a part of the ongoing practice Ecosystems - Rehearsing Collectivity (rehearsing-collectivity.com). Created in collaboration with Ixchel Mendoza Hernandez, Stella Krämer Horta, Lukas Hondrich, Sarah Baron Brljević, Nina Gojić, Seán Marrett, Louise Borinski.
