The exhibition Memory is not only past will open on April 4 in the presence of the artists and marks the beginning of the Not Afraid of Art series, which will run for a total of three years. We cordially invite you to celebrate this opening with us!
Time manifests itself not only in human memories, but also in institutional memories, such as archives and objects. Our memories accumulate into biographies of individuals and societies. They also guide our actions in the present. What is at stake?
Four artistic positions, on show in the ADKDW Studio, reflect on this question: Anna Zett recalls her own childhood experiences as she researches acts of resistance in the GDR. Salwa Aleryani explores how buildings and landscapes depicted on national currency change and follow the lives of those who still - or no longer - inhabit them. Barış Doğrusöz translates surveillance architectures into abstract forms whose shadows renders a complex map of geometrical vectors. In the work of Ute Hörner and Mathias Antlfinger, the animalistic leaves its traces in the human habitat: two parrots were given a model of their own home.
