Opening: Three Positions. Six Directons. | Chapter I
As the title suggests, the very location of the exhibition is at the core of its theme. ST AGNES both contains it and inspires it. A show in three parts presents both impressions from and reactions to the architecture, the history, and its current repurposing, as expressed through a changing group of works by artists ranging from historical to contemporary and emerging. A single work remains throughout the run of the three “chapters” over three months, Franz Erhard Walther’s Drei Standstellen. Sechs Richtungen, 1977, serving as the constant pulse of the exhibition as the space of the gallery is reconfigured for each changing show. Location: König Galerie, Alexandrinenstr. 118-121, Berlin-Kreuzberg.

Das Numen Meatus
Gallery DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM is about to move to a more spacious venue—the new gallery at Linienstraße 23, right behind the Volksbühne, will be inaugurated with the installation Das Numen Meatus (from the Latin for “path”) by the Berlin-based artist collective Das Numen. Something intangible and ephemeral fills the gallery’s rooms: sounds emerge from the downstairs area, produced by six flue pipes and one reed pipe, all between 13.8 and 15.7 feet long, that are suspended in a horizontal position.Another important component of the installation Das Numen Meatus is the space around it: there is no sound without a resonance chamber; without air there is no resonance, no wind, no climate. And life as we know would not exist without the atmosphere. Location: Linienstraße 23, Berlin-Mitte.
