Essay

How we got there and how important it was for Panke.


Essay Artwork

Postcards from the Metaverse speculates on the value of the popular 20th century medium – the postcard – in providing accessible and underrepresented perspectives on a newly- hyped infrastructure


Essay

Former transmediale artistic director Kristoffer Gansing applies a bit of home-grown numerology to reminisce about the secrets of Vorspiel!


Essay

The reSource network has been an extremely valuable resource in the process of establishing and running SPEKTRUM Berlin. It allowed us to connect with like-minded people in the city, to start up new collaborations, and to learn from those facing similar issues in running project spaces.


Essay

The essay summarizes the Czech-Brazilian cultural theorist and media philosopher Vilém Flusser’s ideas on the apparatus, codes, and programmed and manipulated society. He ends his texts by highlighting the importance of artists who might be able to play with and against the apparatus and challenge mass media and their preprogrammed functions.


Essay

From 2011 to 2014, Tatiana Bazzichelli and a team of others designed a sprawling event program called “reSource transmedial culture Berlin,” which picked up on transmediale-related projects and flung them far further.


Essay

Since 2013 designtransfer – the gallery and communicates interface of the Faculty of Design, Berlin University of the Arts (UdK Berlin) and the public – participates yearly at Vorspiel to present various projects as exhibitions, installations, and talks related to their New Media & Design courses.

Bärenzwinger Rungestraße 30 10179 Berlin

The Bärenzwinger in Köllnischer Park has been open to the public as a cultural venue for the first time since September 2017. The former enclosure of the Berlin city bears is being developed by the Department of Art and Culture of the Mitte district of Berlin as a platform for collaborative learning, research and experimentation with curatorial and artistic practice. Site-specific exhibition and event formats will reflect on its history and special features as well as current urban cultural issues.

OPENING TIMES

TUE - SUN 1-7 PM

Addressing - End with swap market and performance by POLIGONAL, PLÜMMO and Candaş Baş (Constanza Macras / DorkyPark) Sunday 04.02.2024 Market From 2 PM Performance at 4 PM

The Bärenzwinger invites everyone from near and far to come together, exchange ideas and listen to each other at the end of the "Addressing" exhibition.

The last exhibition of the annual "Gleaning" programme has been running for the past three months. The Bärenzwinger looked both inwards and outwards and examined its social and cultural position in the urban environment. "Addressing" is an attempt to reflect on its own role as an art institution in the northern part of Luisenstadt.

The two collectives POLIGONAL and spätispäti were invited to explore the urban environment from an artistic and urban sociological perspective and to open up the Bärenzwinger to neighbours, make it more visible and activate it as a place of participation.

Swap your "darlings" at the swap market with spätispäti and enjoy the live mix and the accompanying performance by POLIGONAL, PLÜMMO and Candaş Baş (Constanza Macras / DorkyPark) on Sunday 04.02.2024.



From 2 PM, continuous - swap market as part of "Kill your Darlings!" with spätispäti

Swap your darling!

What do you hold on to? What can you (not) part with? The spätispäti collective uses the former cages as collective cellar rooms and invites you to temporarily lock up personal objects, favourites, (darlings) there - personal objects become part of the exhibition. This collection brings the neighbourhood inside the gallery.

Over the course of the exhibition, a collection has emerged that reflects what is (un)important to the visitors.

The question of what we hold on to now becomes serious at the end of the exhibition: the owners can decide whether they can part with their favourite object in the long term and release it at the swap market during the finissage or whether they want to take it home again. Meanings and owners change. Bring your darling by! Swap it! Or pick it up again!

4 PM – B10179
POLIGONAL X PLÜMMO X Candaş Baş (Constanza Macras / DorkyPark)

The dystopic landscape of the Bärenzwinger becomes an acoustic space of movement: The archival installation "B10179" by POLIGONAL and PLÜMMO (on display since November 7, 2023) provides the framework and soundtrack for a dance exploration by performer Candaş Baş (Constanza Macras / DorkyPark) through the spaces of the former cage. In the polyphonic live-mixed tapestry by PLÜMMO (Nihad El-Kayed) consisting of anecdotes from local actors, distorted field recordings from the surrounding urban landscape, sonified social data, and statistics from the real estate industry, urban transformation processes and capitalist exploitation dynamics translate into a vocabulary of movements.
