‘Police Horse’ by Timur Celik

Tonight the Künstlerhaus Bethanien is opening exhibitions by six Berlin-based artists:

Joshua Schwebel

Dafna Maimon

Thérèse Mastroiacovo

Timur Celik

Florin Kompatscher 

Sergey Voronzov/Juliana Bardolim 

Schwebel’s ‘Subsidy’ edges close to controversial – given he used all his grant money to pay his interns – a not so subtle middle finger to the unpaid internship culture of Berlin, doubling as the theme of his exhibited works. The irony of it all is that the grant was from Künstlerhaus Bethanien itself. Things could escalate quickly tonight, but we won’t take sides.

Alternatively, Dafna Maimon’s current performance and video hybrid piece, HUMAN COMMA BEING, involves challenging the concept of  identity using constructions that challenge definitions of the self, the other and lastly, the body. By acknowledging our our counterparts, both living and technological we can also discover something we may have been missing all along. Two short films are shown, on co-operation with Dutch artist, Lot Meijers.

You can expect an eclectic and lively show tonight, with both the viewer and the artist forced to delve into their subconscious and question their own significance, among other things.

The opening is on tonight from  19-22 until with the exhibition running until the 1 November 2015. Admission is free.
