A24/23m2, Laminate on gold fleece, Uferhallen Berlin, 2019

The Laminate surface laid on the asphalt represents the exact ground plan of my studio on the grounds of Uferhallen, Berlin-Wedding. The studio space was moved to a parking lot on site and is now accessible to the general public. The private area becomes a freely negotiable public space.


Exhibition: August 25th– September 1st, 2019
Opening hours: 4-8pm, closed on Monday
Venue: Uferhallen, Uferstraße 8, 13357 Berlin, Free entrance

The exhibition Eigenbedarf hopes to bring awareness to the dire room situation and the changing living and working conditions in the fabric of the city of Berlin by using artistic means, strategies and ideas. A growing paradox between the city's creative image and the changing situation of possibilities for realization of such efforts is palpable for artists of every genre. The Uferhallen site has been home to a unique and interdisciplinary community of studios, workshops and exhibition spaces for ten years. Since the selling of the majority of shares to ArgoPrato in 2017 (with A. Samwer as main shareholder) people here also need to fear for their future.
Eigenbedarf with its 65 artists will introduce the venue Uferhallen with its unique possibilities due to size, networking and cooperation possibilites. It will feature works in the rear exhibition hall and wide parts of the outside area. A majority of the exhibiting artists work on site. Despite their collective effort and common goal to preserve their work space, they all have different perspectives, attitudes and artistic practices. This diversity will be revealed in the exhibition. Furthermore, works by external artists that also deal with topics pertaining to the situation will be included; i. e. work space, gentrification and city development.
