Die Kunst-Events der Woche

by Maria Brunner in Face / OFF, Galerie Gebrüder Lehmann

Bonjour allerseits! Das Berliner Wetter könnte nicht schlimmer sein, aber glücklicherweise laden uns viele Events dazu ein die Außenwelt zu vergessen: Die Mindpirates feiern mit Lionel Williams und Raz Ohara, Jorinde Voigt zeigt Arbeiten aus den letzten sieben Jahren, Gruppenausstellungen bieten Abwechslung und ein sonntäglicher Hangover-Flohmarkt rundet die Regenflucht ab. Während Frank die Pariser Fashion Week genießt und seine große Reise antritt, werde ich den nächsten sechs Wochen mein Bestes geben, um ihn würdevoll zu vetreten. Zu meinen ersten Kunst-Guide gelangt ihr nach dem Klick…

Monday, Jan 23

As Frank already mentioned in his last guide, the Mindpirates present the solo show Let the Sun Shine in (Jan 22 – Feb 18) with California-based artist and musician Lionel Williams. Additionally they invited several amazing musicians to collaborate and perform The Berlin sessions throughout this week: On Monday, the series starts with Williams and Raz Ohara and the Odd Orchestra at Mindpirates Projektraum (Schlesische Straße 38, 3rd backyard) from 20h – 24h.

Tuesday, Jan 24

Let’s relocate ourselves and do something in Berlin’s west for a change: For instance, visit the opening of the group show (Re-) Locating the self at Kunstsaele Berlin (Bülowstrasse 90, 19h-21h) with Carl Andre, David Blamey, Peter Downsbrough, Channa Horwitz, Bettina Khano, Sandra Peters, Karin Sander and Lawrence Weiner. The exhibition is curated by Marc Glöde. More information on their website.

Wednesday, Jan 25

Jorinde Voigt is one of the German rising art-stars: Codes, numbers and lines transform into delicate patterns on large-scale drawings and installations. Represented by Galerie Fahnemann, she was declared a “New Talent” at Art Cologne in 2006. Since then, the gallery and the artist have been cooperating, observing their success. Therefore, a cross-selection of Voigt’s artwork from the last seven years will be shown at Galerie Fahnemann (Fasanenstrasse 61). An exhibition opening during your mid-day break? This one starts at 13h!

Another music-event at Mindpirates Projektraum? The Berlin Sessions present Lionel Williams jamming with Jochen Arbeit from Einstürzende Neubauten, Hopek Quirin & Valerie Renay from Noblesse Oblige (Schlesische Straße 38, 3rd backyard, 20h-24h)

Thursday, Jan 26

Galerie Cruise & Callas currently shows Annabelle Craven-JonesPROPOSAL FOR A MINDSCAPE (neuroAESTHETICS). Jonesinstallations and videos deal with emotions, affection, psychology and psychoanalysis. A good time to visit the show and receive an exclusive introduction by the artist herself would be Thursday, at 19h in the gallery (Köpenicker Strasse 187/188).

Friday, Jan 27

As usual, Berlin’s Friday-opening-offers are endless, so I had to pick my favorites. Let’s start with the group shows:  Galerie Michael Jannsen presents Paper does not Blush with eleven artists, such as Monique van Genderen, Emil Holmer and Mario Ybarra. The gallery is located at Rudi-Dutschke-Strasse 26 – right around the corner from the next opening at Galerie Gebrüder Lehmann at Lindenstrasse 35. Titled Face / OFF, this show includes art works by Tatjana Doll, Bjarne Melgaard or Frank Nitsche. The last group exhibition on my list takes place at Galerie Kamm (Rosa-Luxenburg-Strasse 43-45): Über dich (about you) includes five artistic positions, discussing the relationship of the portrayed and the one who creates the potrait via photography and video. All these events take place between 18h-21h.

If you are not exhausted by then, I can warmly recommend two further must-sees: Reply all at DAM Berlin (Neue-Jakob-Strasse 6-7, 19h-21h) shows the newest works of Aram Bartholl – perhaps one of the most exciting Berlin-based artists. His art goes beyond the gallery walls, intervening and exploring public spaces. On my blog artfridge, I once reported about his USB-Stick-action in New York City. Aaaaaand – Hallelujah – the last Friday-opening by the world-famous artist Isa Genzken at Schinkelpavillon (Oberwallstrasse 1, 19h-22h).

Sunday, Jan 29

After a little Saturday-art-pause and some possible carnage, why not visit the opening of Claude Parent’s solo show Drawings at Galerie Esther Schipper (Schöneberger Ufer 65, 11h-14h). Another great spot to linger about could be the Hangover-Flea Market at White Trash Fast Food (Schönhauser Allee 6-7). The entry fee is only one Euro and the event starts at 12h and continues into the night – if you should be interested in some possible further carnage.
