ABOUT ART LABORATORY BERLIN

ART LABORATORY BERLIN, a non-profit organisation, was founded in Autumn 2006 by an international team of art historians and artists. As a non-commercial art space, ART LABORATORY BERLIN was established as a platform for projects concentrating on the border between visual arts and related artistic and scholarly fields. The main focus of interest is the exhibition and placement of contemporary visual art that interacts with other fields, such as text, music, science, law an technology. Each of these points of interaction is represented by a series of diverse exhibitions and events. Our goal is to explore the manifold approaches of interaction and interconnection between genres. Our current and upcoming series are ‘Time and Technology’ and ‘Synaesthesia’. ART LABORATORY BERLIN is also interested in supporting contact between artists and the public as part of our exhibitions. To improve a better understanding of emerging and experimental art, we include public discussions with artists and curators. Additionally our program provides lectures, film screenings, curator’s talks, and workshops. Currently ART LABORATORY BERLIN is run by Christian de Lutz and Regine Rapp.

THE LOST FILM PERFORMANCE

PictureSketch by Ana Bellido (Click on image to enlarge)Bruce Nauman had the simple but profound realization: “If I was an artist and I was in the studio, then whatever I was doing in the studio must be art… At this point art became more of an activity and less of a product.” In this project, film is not only perceived as a projection of what was recorded, but as an on going action. The spectator will no longer observe a projected surface, but will be immersed in cinema pieces that combine actions, objects and film. Reynolds’ film performance contributes the further dimension of aliveness to the understanding of how moving image art overlaps with other arts and practices including performance, photography and installation. The live construction of the image destroys the illusion of film, revealing the whole studio process as art. The performance is set around recently found and restored film material of an unfinished 1930’s feature length film which was made in Berlin the same time as the early productions of Fritz Lang and F. W. Murnau. The film began production in the early 1930’s but due to the changing political climate the director did not finish the filming process and disappeared.

MPA-B 2012: PERFORMANCES, CONCERTS AND INSTALLATIONS SERIES

Picture(Click on image to enlarge)CONCERTS:
Romain & Vadim
Les Polichinels
Romain & Vadim are two French emerging artists of the electronic scene. Both comig from acoustic music, the two musicians get inspired by rock, jazz and classical for their productions. Now based in Berlin, they have been pushed by the experimental creativity of the city and start to explore this field through duo performances. Les Polichinels is an electronic live set, where the artists uses machines and instruments of their every day musical productions, controlled by a politically tainted puppet discourse. The performers are manipulated by the public like toys and a kind of «last day» euphoria takes over the play. A reversed visual experience depecting the shift of their musical beliefs; artists in inversion with their time

Alan Layton, Florian Constantinides
Stories In Colour (SIC), is a live performance defined by spatial and accoustic interaction: the performances do not impose themselves on performance spaces, they work together with space. Layton is a writer, improviser and sound artist. He performs texts to experimental music under the name Stories In Colour (SIC), often working with analogue machines to achieve primitive soundscapes. He was involved in the setting up of the Berlin-based «dienstBar» (1999), the «Tonband Orkester» projekt (2001), the «Freies Radio Für Berlin Kampagne» (2003) and hosting an open stage night at the Berlin «Art Pub», showcasing new writers (2007). In Spring 2011 he worked as events organiser at ECC, Berlin Weissensee. He is currently performing with saxophonist Florian Constantinides.

Vienne Chan
video, 2012

In an inverse to the white cube, where its emptiness and lack of reference can become a source of uncontrollable-ness, the artist will project her self-portrait interacting with the narrow, black triangular space of L’Atelier – kunst(spiel)raum, exploring the thematic of claustrophobia.

L’echec de la pesenteur

Video, 10`45mn, loop, 2009
The loop is centrated continuously on a rope making a hole. Bubbles blown through the hole. Emptiness encountering emptiness, as a symbol of vanity. Pop but minimal, poetical but cynical. L’echec de la pesenteur, un envol.

ABOUT L’ATELIER – KUNST(SPIEL)RAUM 

L’Atelier – kunst(spiel)raum is an exhibition space in the back yard of Grossbeerenstr. 34 in Mehringdamm, Berlin. 180 m2 over two floors host a program of solo presentations by young artists as well as experimental sound concerts, screenings, workshops and residencies. L’Atelier – kunst(spiel)raum is a project of curator Stefania Angelini (MC) initiatied with the goal to act as a professional intermediate for selected young artists and at the same time as an interdisciplinary playroom for the local and international artistic community in Berlin. Six to seven selected artists per year are given the opportunity to present their work in an equiped gallery space, without the usual white cube attitude. The interdisciplinary concept of l’Atelier focuses on creating a platform for new ideas, interaction and networking. Linking different domains, finding alternatives to classical models of exhibition, L’Atelier tries to open up a pre-formatted idea of the art gallery according to the idea of Gesamkunstwerke: total work, total artist. The space is young and will evolve together with its artists. For the second edition of the Month of the Performance l’Atelier approaches the field of Performance Art and pushes the boundaries through 5 days of programmed artistic interventions. The programme has been thought in 3 parts : – Permanent artistic installations – Performances – Concerts.

THERE IS NO LOVE LIKE THE FIRST BY VERA SOFIA MOTA

Picture(Click on image to enlarge)
This is a piece around some postures of the classical dance as it comes to today. “Posture” comes from the Latin word “positura” that means, among other things, “fatigue, work to settle down, disposition, body placement, body attitude, order”- which brings us to the stances of rest, stability or immobility. All terms pertained to an extreme violence to dance, and that usually only take place in analytical approaches in this area. Nevertheless, there is something of the domain of fixity normally implied in dance in its process of actualization and that is much related to the kind of motion created in the relationship of these dynamic drawings of the body and the proper disposal of the gaze. And that, in the case of the classical dance, appears to involve in a very peculiar game where “thing tried” and “thing seen” are always mediated by a kind of ideal to always chase and never meet. Therefore, it appears that the “military procession” as Nietzsche says, is always the target of a confusing desire in this particular type of dance; something’s always present. And in here, what happens is a journey through some of these figures, where passage and drawing mix by marking a scale capable of the display and return to each other – grabbed and free formation, simultaneously shocking and able of its orientation. There goes the ideal. The referent remains. And ultimately, the referent of the referent, which becomes dull with its tendency for dissimulation and that could look to be first, but is not.

ABOUT TATWERK

TATWERK is a young/old spot in Kreuzkölln with a theatre tradition. For four years Tatwerk has been a place for theatre research on Artaud, Grotowski, Performance and Experimental Theatre. Within the global concept of Integral Theatre, Tatwerk has been searching for possibilities to unify different approaches of theatricality. Since March 2012 Tatwerk is taking on a new direction. In order to become a more permeable space for workshops, courses, encounters and exchanges it combines three main fields: Theatre, Dance & Performance. Possible topics to be developed in this project are Body, Action – political, artistic, social or experimental- and Present.
