Exhibition of Master Work
M.A. SPATIAL STRATEGIES
Weissensee Kunsthochschule Berlin
Opening / 27.9.19 19 Uhr
What relationship does an archive of the Portuguese City Vila Real de Santo António have with research about traces, gestures and strategies of resistance in Teheran? What are the resonances between a work investigating resentment in labor – devising tricks to outwit grueling workplaces, and pulling a rope to re-enact the myth of Procrustes? The works of these „Raumstrategien“ masters students shine light on a variety of nuances around forms of resistance in everyday life. These topics are researched both close-up and with historical distance – through artistic, activist, personal and collective perspectives. By opening up forgotten or overlooked spaces, the works strive to cultivate tangible solidarities through which a potential social impact of art and artistic practice might be realized.
Performances and presentations will take place throughout the course of the exhibition
