19.9.2019 | 11th Berlin Biennale c/o ExRotaprint

exp. 1: Housewarming

Our first step into the city of Berlin is to settle into the ground level space of a tower belonging to the architectural complex of ExRotaprint. As incomers we consider our surroundings to be our learning environment—we are here to listen. We bring with us some baggage from our South, artistic alibis and stories, devices to help us navigate the metropolis and listen to its inhabitants. Gazing through the ground-level curtain-window onto a single street in the neighborhood of Wedding, we will begin by creating a scene setting for encounters, dialog, and exchange. We trust in the unforeseen outcome of mutual exposure, not a spectacle of process, but the effort of being present, open, and in proximity. We are aware that our time is limited, but we believe in developing sustainable relationships. Rumor is we have already begun.

The 11th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art is taking up residence and opens its first scene setting exp. 1: The Bones of the World on the ground floor of the corner tower at the ExRotaprint complex in the neighborhood of Wedding in Berlin.
