Ashkan Sahihi: The Last Supper Weserstr.
19:00h
Art

Ashkan Sahihi: The Last Supper Weserstr.

Exhibition: ''The configuration is universally familiar: in the centre sits a figure, eyes downcast, arms open in the sturdy form of a triangle. To the left and right, many gesturing hands vie for attention, while the figures to which the hands belong are positioned along the far side of a long table, variously seated and standing in heated tableaux. The Last Supper is one of the most recognisable works of Western art, rendered as an allegory of betrayal, greed and forgiveness. Its ubiquity in the West plants it firmly in our collective cultural imaginary, yet its familiarity in the contemporary era owes not necessarily to Da Vinci’s masterful original, painted in the late 15th century on the walls of the Santa Maria delle Grazie, but to the work’s consistent and continual reproduction well into the 21st.'' Location: Weserhalle Weserstrasse 56, 12045 Berlin, Germany

I wanted to show you the world, but I only had 2GB

An art Performance: ''No limits through limits! Julia Plawgo sets a clear boundary for herself and the audience in her choreography and extremely limits her palette of options: one light, scarcely any space, no direction. This framework, however, explodes all boundaries and draws places us under a spell composed of movement, personality and intimacy: for Julia Plawgo, 2GB are more than the world.''

Der Palast
20:00h
Event

Der Palast

Finding a nice apartment in Berlin has become a serious hustle. You have to compete with lots of other people for a little one-bedroom apartment for 800 Euros in Wedding – if you are lucky. All these other people have better jobs, more savings and a much more stable personality than you in stress situations. But imagine that instead of having to prove your financial security you would need to partake in a dance competition in front of your landlord to get your dream apartment in Berlin? In the newest piece by Costanza Macras “Der Palast” this absurd scenario becomes a reality. Several couples compete in a reality show competition that reminded me of Dancing with the Stars. Of course, the whole show is not linear but more like a mosaic of all kind of little stories, dance episodes, and funny group scenes. Location: Volksbühne Berlin Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz, 10178 Berlin
