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.

Becker Hinsberg Reinert, L O O S E, 2018, collaborative drawings

September 08 - 16,  2018

Becker Reinert Hinsberg


Pavillon am Milchhof
Schwedter Str. 232
10435 Berlin

Anke Becker, Veronike Hinsberg, and Inken Reinert are working together on collaborative drawings since the year 2006.

Using colored pencils, felt-tip and ball-point pens, and other drawing media the three artists  create  complex “drawn conversations” akin a musical jam session. Every single sheet of the entire installations is a drawing made by the three of the artists.  Collaborative Drawing means that the artists are forced to interact with the lines and patterns of the others, to improvise, and to add individual variations to the main theme. In their collaborative drawings the artists emphasize visual dialogue over personal technique. Individual styles merge and intercept, contrast and complement each another, creating an illustrated refrain at once unified and unique.

The collabrotive drawings of this exhibition were created in the winter of 2017/18 on a remote "Loose" farm in the East German countryside, the Oderbruch close to the Polish border.


July 14 - September 19, 2018

curated by Anke Becker

How are our judgements about art affected by our knowledge of the artist’s name and background? How is the value of a drawing determined? Where is the border between art and non-art?

The ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS 2018 exhibition features 600 drawings by 600 anonymous international artists presented with no mention of authorship or title and offered for sale at a symbolic price of € 200. The identity of the artist is revealed only after the work is sold. The project began with an international open call for drawing submissions. No guidelines were given specifying content; the only requirement was that the drawings be no bigger than A3. The background, age, or gender of participants played no role in the final selection of works. From over 2000 drawings submitted, the final 600 were selected by Berlin artist and project founder Anke Becker in cooperation with artist duo Reinert/Hinsberg to create a collective art piece.

ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS is both conceptual art and exhibition project in one where individual works from everyone involved become part of a larger wall installation in which hierarchies are entirely absent.

SALES DATES: Every Wednesday and Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m.,
as well as during the opening event and online from July 17: www.anonyme-zeichner.de


Tuesday, 14 August, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Wednesday, 15 August, 10 a.m. –3 p.m.
All those interested in drawing and experimentation are invited to participate in creating a collective drawing made up of many individual parts. Artists Anke Becker and Katja Pudor will conduct the workshop.

Saturday, 25 August, 5 p.m.

Artists participating in the exhibition anonymously created a brief description of one of the works. Exact, associative, lyric, meandering, concise. A libretto was created from the results and will be presented as a choral performance by "Singkompanie Mayröcker". An accompanying printed edition of all image descriptions will also be presented.

Thursday, 13 September, 7 p.m.

Making pixelpoints move has become easy with software. Why then, would artists still opt for the hard road by using analogue materials and frame-by-frame techniques in their animation? In a lecture and film screening, Bettina Munk/Lines Fiction presents the latest developments in animated film with roots in traditional animation forms.

Amidst Two Points. Anke Becker und Arnold Dreyblatt

curated by Majla Zeneli

opening reception: May 24, 2018 / 7 pm

The “Amidst Two Points” exhibition features works by Anke Becker and Arnold Dreyblatt. The viewer will be have the chance to see text-based works as well as works based on text-erasures. “Writing Cage” by Arnold Dreyblatt and “Grey Headlines” by Anke Becker play with what we assume to be beginnings and ends, whereas all the “in-betweens” will be found in a continuous alteration.

artist talk (in German): May 29 / 6pm presenter: Myriam Naumann
This Artists’ Talk is devoted to the movements of language. Both Becker’s Grey Headlines, taken from articles in the New York Times and Dreyblatt’s series Writing Cage which works with text fragments by John Cage open up a field of incessant linguistic presence and absence. The Talk will explore the appearance and disappearance of signs, look into the interstices of language and explore the archive’s artistic positions. The talk will be complemented with a reading by Arnold Dreyblatt.

Freitag, 4th of August, 7pm: Potluck at Manière Noire:  An event with drinks, appetizers, and economic words

Dear friends, dear colleagues, dear art enthusiasts, We gather on the 4 August  at 7 pm to meet, exchange, and clink glasses. As some of you might have heard, Manière Noire was one of the awarded spaces from the Berlin Senate. This award is a reward, recognition and high esteem for the past activity. Seen in terms of future, it will facilitate further continuance of a place where ideas, artists and curious people meet.

Majla Zeneli from Manière Noire will take care of the drinks. Anke Becker hangs new pieces from the series "economic words" The guests are kindly asked to contribute with some appetizer for the buffet.

The economics absurdly affects our decisions and lives at every moment. The news (online or printed) just affirms the ubiquitous oddities or logic streaming from the business world. The Financial Times (FT) with its so characteristic salmon taint, and a daily newspaper with a special emphasis on business and economic news, serves Anke Becker as a base for her riposte. Anke’s interventions consist on taking away or blackening the surplus information. However, the initial text of the article is still legible. Economic news becomes "economic words". Under erasures (sous rature) Anke Becker alters business facts into stunning brief poetries, so the reality gets more bearable.
Anke Becker is an artist based in Berlin. There have been numerous undertakings between her and Manière Noire. More Info: www.economicwords.com

The exhibition Transforming Lines explores the use of the ‘drawn’ line in contemporary art. The intention is to give insight into a variety and possibilities of what drawing may become in artistic practice. The line may reveal itself in different forms - as an embodiment of motion and time, a reflection on space, a ‘found’ line or an element which either separates or connects things. While easily comprehended as drawing on classical surfaces, such as paper, drawing can have many other manifestations in objects, painting, photography and moving images. Thus, drawing reveals itself as a creative process, an important foundation for artistic practice, still valid today, as well as being an autonomous discipline.

"Fernweh..the good life" / Postcards to Nebraska City

I have created this mail-art project on the occasion of an artist residency in Nebraska City,NE, at the KHN Center for the Arts in Nebraska City, NE USA in January/February 2015.

Nebraska City, the gateway to the West, part of the so-called "Wild West", the Great Plains, the native country of the Plains Indians and many bison. Along with the homestead act and the construction of the railroad across the Plains a lot of European farmers rushed in to settle the land in the hopes of finding a new and better life, THE GOOD LIFE...

With this in mind I have invited a group of international visual artists and writers to send a postcard to me in Nebraska with their very own interpretation of "Fernweh..the good life". Text, drawing, collage, print, photograph, painting - everything is possible. In return, every participant received a similar, one-of-a-kind postcard made by me, from Nebraska City. All postcards are documented on this Blog: http://fernwehthegoodlife.blogspot.com/

Idea and realization: Anke Becker

300 drawings by Berlin-based artists will be presented anonymously in three consecutive exhibitions. The works will be exhibited without the artist’s names. The exhibition was preceded by an open call for submissions; The selections were chosen anonymously, without looking at the artists' names on the reverse side of the works. The artist's anonymity can only be revealed by a sale: the buyer takes the drawing right off the wall and the empty space left behind will be marked with the artist's full name. Sale of all exhibited drawings for a unit sales price of 150 Euro each at the openings and during the opening hours. Cash only!

From May 20-June 1 all yet unsold drawings will be for sale online at www.anonyme-zeichner.de (international shipping)

This Red Door / REH Kunst Berlin
Kopenhagener Strasse 17
D-10437 Berlin, Germany

Work and Discussion with Anke Becker:


At This Red Door Anke Becker will present the Anonymous Drawings Project and talk about the value and beauty of the Anonymous Drawings Archive as a collaborative work of conceptual art. She will show images of archived works and talk about her way of combining single works into a total yet changeable work of art.

About THIS RED DOOR at REH Kunst Berlin: REH Kunst is pleased to announce the visit of “This Red Door” in July and August. Following the first two iterations at the Kunsthalle Galapagos in Brooklyn and the PS122 Gallery in East Village, Jomar Statkun, Jared Friedman and Christopher Stackhouse will now turn REH Kunst into a dynamic platform for creative and critical exchange. In their collaborative attempt they investigate the terms and conditions that may define ‘studio practice’, as well as art and its social functionality. The goal is to develop an open and non-hierarchical discourse amongst artists and the general public. www.thisreddoor.com

""SILENCE" Financial Times, July 21, 2012

my BLOG economic words

Is there concealed beauty behind the everyday news of the world of finances and economy? Financial crisis versus poetry?

Hidden news with  a very own expression appear by painting over and striking out articles from the Financial Times Germany  -  beyond capital flows, stock market quotations and international monetary movements.
