Cultural Topographies of Polish Berlin I 07.10.2017 – 21.10.2017 I Berlin
Different generations of artists have been presented to the Berlin audience in a combination of formats such as exhibitions, studio visits, artists talks, meetings in galleries, expert panels, live performances, and activities in the public space. We were not looking for commonalities between the works of political migrants and younger artists. Furthermore, we were drawing attention to individual artistic statements to open up spaces for personal narratives and overlapping references. A versatile and reciprocal relationship to Berlin as a cultural location may thus function as an interpretative bracket; the city itself turns out to be a sui generis document, a living archive in which everything conglomerates: space, time and actors.
