Eröffnung: 30.11.19, 7pm
Öffnungszeiten: 01.12.19-05.01.20, Dienstag – Samstag, 13.30-18.30 Uhr

Zu Beginn der Ausstellungsreihe „Navigating Berlin“ erwartet die Besucher*innen ein Einblick in die Geschichte Berlins und lässt sie in die bis heute rätselhafte und abenteuerliche Welt der Kartografie eintauchen. Dabei werden die Besucher auf eine kartografische Reise durch die Stadt geführt, während ausgewählte Karten, Ausstellungsstücke und Begleittexte die Entdeckungstour abrunden. Begeben Sie sich auf die Spuren verborgener Erzählungen, entdecken Sie Bruchstücke der Geschichte, die sich in der Stadt finden lassen, und erleben Sie, wie sich Berlin im Laufe der Jahre verändert hat.

Mit Kunstwerken von DISSS und Olaf Kühnemann.

Olaf Kühnemann
Grid References – A memory map
Colour pencils on paper, 145x183cm, 2019

Presenting work on paper 145x180cm, the image is based on a photograph of the artist’s family gathered around a table at their home in Herzliya Israel. A grid reference system is used to make the drawing, referencing those used to define locations in maps. In this case the grid reference is a series of vertical and horizontal lines which help the artist to „coordinate“ where he is in the drawing process. Whilst looking at the family photo to create the drawing memories are triggered which in turn become real coordinates on the memory map. A written index will be available for viewers to help ’read’ the Drawing.

Olaf Kühnemann is a Israeli German artist based in Berlin since 2009. Kühnemann’s work is diverse in theme and language, ranging from autobiographical themes using painting, to installation works using free association, bicycles, works on paper, Instagram, and video. He works as an artist between Berlin and Tel-Aviv. Recipient of the Isracard and Tel Aviv Museum Art Prize for an Israeli Artist (2008). Kühnemann was included in the Juror’s Pick section of 100 Painters of Tomorrow book, published by Thames and Hudson (2015).


Berlin Sound Transitions, 2019
Seven sound compositions for a 16-channel speaker set-up, consisting of tweeters, mid-range speakers, subwoofers and surface transducers.

Berlin Sound Transitions is a site-specific work, consisting of a 16-channel system distributed in the gallery space that is presented in the form of sound collages, acoustic cartographies and compositions that engage with the existing acoustic properties of the room. A collective set up of individual aural perspectives creates a variety of sonic dimensions in dialogue with the cartographies exhibited.

DISSS is a collective formed by the MA Sound Studies and Sonic Arts students at the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK), supervised by Daisuke Ishida. Featuring the works of Jonathan Bruns, Nico Daleman, Yun-Chu Liang, Oskar J. Mayböck, Enrika Myskovskaja, Samuel Perea-Díaz and Francis Sosta.

Daisuke Ishida (1980, Tokyo) is a Berlin based artist, working with sound and contemporary media and has presented his artistic activities in museums, festivals and galleries internationally. He is interested in the consequences of artistic praxis and theory in sound, space and perception. His works explore the boundaries of ephemeral and time based media to open up new perspectives on spatialities, while his understanding of space extends from the physical, to the social and political realm. He was the recipient of the work stipends: New Music and Sound Art by the Berlin Senate in 2017. In 2002 he co-founded The SINE WAVE ORCHESTRA which received honorary mention by the Prix Ars Electronica, 2004 and 2019, among others.
