[ MPA-B ϟ PUBLIC SPACE ] PERFORMANCE SERIES:…RAUMTEILEN… (SPACE SHARING) – TOURIST TRAP BY DOVRAT MERON

Picture(Click image to enlarge)Tourist Trap is a universal term which describes a situation when a local person takes an advantage on innocent tourists that are not familiar with the country for financial or other profit. In the performance Tourist Trap I invite tourists to a parkour between four locations in walking distance. Starting at the Brandenburger Gate, continue to the memorial to the murdered Jews of
Europe and the memorial to the Homosexuals persecuted under the Nazi Regime, and finish at the under construction memorial to the Sinti and Roma, murdered under the Nazi Regime. Between collective and personal, facts and fictive I hope to throw light on the complex role of memorials in public spaces.

“…Memorials tend to become part of the city. Locals can get use to them, to skip them as if they were a dead zone but tourists are constantly re-establishing their role. Impressive as they are, memorials can remind people of the horror of the history but fail to prevent them of repeating themselves… and maybe it is not their duty in the first place”

ABOUT RAUMTEILEN 

…RAUMTEILEN… (SPACE SHARING) is a cultural strategy that will create spaces in spaces in order to investigate and develop different ways of living together. Different locations in Berlin-Mitte have been selected as performance sites to enable interaction between artists, spectators and people passing by. The aim is not only to establish a direct reference to the respective location but also to experience and appreciate the space from the perspective of person-to-person relationships.

In this performance series public space acts as an “area for encounters”. Personal and political histories will be told and both everyday and unusual situations will be created in which spectators are invited to reflect on the city. The view should not remain superficial. This way, …RAUMTEILEN… will expose Berlin-Mitte’s “New Urbanity” vision as a tourist attraction and see the district as a neutral, open place in which people can meet, regardless of their background and social class. The main theme is “Share and be shared”.

DIE MADE IM SPECK: PERFORMANCE,  SOUND INSTALLATION AND LECTURES (RUNNING UNTIL MAY 18TH)

Picture(Click image to enlarge)Die Made im Speck is an installation and performance project about the dimensions of social disgust. Disgust doesn’t only relate to biological decomposition processes but also to social groups and behavior. In Pasolini’s work disgust manifests itself as moral and sexual squalidness, which he associate with fascism. Sartre conceives disgust rather as senselessness and randomness of existence. After all disgust is an important topic of groundbreaking philosophical reactions and concepts of the 20th century. The connection between the human‐existential and social disgust can be seen, for example, in the viewing “gures of TV‐Shows like Das Dschungelcamp on RTL ‐ the market share was at 40 percent, meaning 7.28 million viewers – in which celebrities of Germany eat maggots and get showered in cockroaches. Massmedia shows such as Gnadenlos (Sat.1) and Das Messie‐Team (RTL2), feign to be debates on a socially‐specified dimension. Yet hey point their anger at distorted social images without, however, identifying and analyzing the underlying social pathologies. The insights of science are always lesser than the pool of man’s experience. Every scientific interest in insight is always confronted with certain leftovers, realities that are methodically elusive. In so far as disgust is the eruption of the negative and the carnally‐unknown, science is constantly faced with its limitations. The present with its complexity of diverse indexes can only be captured, simulated and experienced by and through art. With die made im speck we attempt to collectively approach the dimensions of social disgust from different angles and to further deconstruct it. This deconstruction will touch on and confront us with our own boundaries in relation to our moral, our mentality and our patience. In this respect, the different artistic fields shall converge to a total work of art.

ESCAPE – INTERNATIONAL PERFORMANCE FESTIVAL (MAY 11TH TO MAY 19TH)

Picture(Click image to enlarge)ESCAPE 2012 is the programmatic title of the International Festival planned and organized by Open Space Berlin and BLO- Ateliers. Escape is a geopolitical phenomenon associated with third world countries, or war zones which often leads to terrible humanitarian crisis on the borders of Europe and beyond. The question of whether or not escaping is possible has also been highlighted by the recent nuclear catastrophe in the highly developed country of Japan. With this mind, this theme has been consciously chosen to serve us as a screen and source of inspiration for an International Art Festival with a focus on performing arts, and cultural exchange between Asian, European, US- and South American artists and the local performance scene in Berlin.
