Departure is a moment. The moment when we leave something in order to arrive somewhere else, let go of something in order to accept something else, look back on something in order to be able to look forward. Departure gives the direction or leaves everything open. Departure”, “departure” or “departure” move in this field of tension.
What is decisive is the sequence in which Departure takes place. The moment that describes a departure and transformation. In this moment lies a lot of power, joy, stubbornness or even longing and melancholy.
Departure is physically experienced, mentally tangible and emotionally existent. And most of the time it has a positive connotation. Departure is not a moment of escape, not an act of fear. It is the small unit of spontaneity that can lead to renewal. Departure is impulse.
For the place Tegel Airport, which RÄUME has chosen for its 3rd exhibition, exactly this moment is interesting.
The place is in the process of dissolving its purpose.
It is at the moment where excited/joyful uncertainty about the future is accompanied by a longing for the past.
Tegel is Departure at the moment – without knowing where the journey is going.
