The Maxim Gorki Theatre has been working for over four seasons on negotiating ourselves out of simplifications, attributions and categorisations, and on building up new narratives. This November they're presenting the third edition of the Berliner Herbstsalon, featuring art, theatre, performance and discourse in the city centre: from the Brandenburg Gate through the Kronzprinzenpalais to the Palais am Festungsgraben and in the GORKI itself. Under the title De-Integrate Yourselves! the 3. Berliner Herbstsalon has gathered together works from around 100 visual and performing artists who take a critical approach to the construction of identity and unity.

Manipulate the World

Moderna Museet Stockholm

Exhibition: Oct 21 (2017) - Jan 18 (2018)

In a text from 1964, Öyvind Fahlström urges to manipulate the world. What does this mean for artists today, in our era of alternative facts, relative truths and fragmented narratives? In an exhibition filling two floors in the Museum, 28 Swedish and international artists explore and challenge Öyvind Fahlström’s ideas on manipulation and theatricality. Four historic works by Fahlström define the playing field for the exhibition with works by Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Rossella Biscotti, Juan Castillo, Aslı Çavuşoğlu, Kajsa Dahlberg, Detanico Lain, Economic Space Agency, Róza El-Hassan, Harun Farocki, Öyvind Fahlström, Goldin+Senneby, Núria Güell , Candice Lin, Jill Magid, Ibrahim Mahama, Nicholas Mangan, Sirous Namazi, Rivane Neuenschwander, Otobong Nkanga, Sondra Perry, Pratchaya Phinthong, Katarina Pirak Sikku, Natascha Sadr Haghighian , Jonas Staal, Hito Steyerl, Hanan Hilwé i samarbete med Walid Raad, Thu Van Tran, Alexander Vaindorf, Wermke/Leinkauf

 

Grenzüberschreitungen

Schau Fenster - Raum für Kunst (Lobeckstraße 30-35, 10969 Berlin)

Exhibition: Oct 19 - Nov 20

Ob psychisch, gesellschaftlich-politisch oder taktil, Grenzen werden gezogen, überschritten und neu bedacht. Kant sagte „Meine Freiheit endet dort wo die Freiheit des anderen beginnt.“ Um die gesellschaftlichen Grenzen der Freiheit zu definieren, müssen sie erst überschritten werden. Leider ist im Zeitalter des Rechtspopulismus Grenzüberschreitung sehr negativ konnotiert und der Wunsch nach konservativer Führung und Ungleichheit bzw. „White Supermacy“, traditioneller Familie sowie einer Verbannung von Genderstudies/ Feminismus, historischer Erinnerungskultur und ethnischer Pluralität usw. verbreitet, einhergehend mit dem Wunsch nach totaler Überwachung und harten Sanktionen.
Als persönliches Unbehagen an der Gesellschaftsentwicklung und deren Feindseligkeiten gegenüber liberalen Normen und Werten zeigt die Ausstellung „Grenzüberschreitung“ Kunst die zwischen dem medialen, ästhetischen, gesellschaftskritischen sowie legalen und illegalen Bereich oszilliert. Grenzen einhalten bedeutet auch immer aushalten und blinder Gehorsam. Grenzen überschreiten in der Kunst, bedeutet auffallen, Mut, Idealismus und den Wunsch nach Veränderung oder einen Diskurs zu eröffnen.

Fleisch und Stein - "Entscheidungen" in Munich

WhiteBOX München
(Atelierstraße 18, D-81671 Munich)

Opening: Sep 15
Exhibition: Sep 16 - Oct 22

How do women and men move about within the city, what do they see, what do they hear and smell, what do they eat, what do they wear and how do they love. Richard Sennett's »Fleisch und Stein« (Flesh and Stone) acted as an inspiration for this exploration of the bodily experiences of people in the post-modern urban environment.
The urban dynamic originates from the interaction of human bodies within a space; creative potential from the confrontation in social, religious or ideological conflicts. The sensory experience of competitive diversity, of living and symbolised bodies is a basic prerequisite for our sense of human togetherness.
The »Fleisch und Stein« exhibition questions artists from Turkey, Spain and Germany about their views on the transformation of the city, and the appropriation of urban spaces, based on the concepts of: decision, movement and traces, identity and clothing, appropriation of spaces and collective memory.
Artists: Wermke/Leinkauf, Mehtap Baydu, Aline Brugel, Democracia, Diana Artus and Larissa Fassler

 

Performing the Border

Performing the Border
Kunstraum Niederösterreich, Herrengasse 13, Vienna

Jun 1 - 7pm - Opening
on view till Jul 22
Jun 2 - 5pm - Talk with Jana J. Haeckel, Petra Poelzl and artists of the exhibition

The exhibition Performing the Border presents artistic works which are not satisfied with the obvious and evident and choose to focus their attention beyond to the outside. In a present time, where large parts of the globe are marked by racism, isolation, restricted freedom of the press, and “post-factual” debates, the artists plot scenarios in which the dubious categories of the “own” and the “foreign” can become tangible for the viewer. They conceive the complex field of national, ethnic, social, digital, and sexual identity as a realm for experiment.
With: Monira Al Qadiri, Halil Altindere, Francis Alÿs, Ursula Biemann, Tiffany Chung, Julien Creuzet, Khaled Jarrar, Leon Kahane, Martin Krenn/Oliver Ressler, Eva Leitolf, Hana Miletić, Anahita Razmi, Christoph Schlingensief, Hito Steyerl, Wermke/Leinkauf, Clara Wildberger, Miao Ying
