Joyce Vincent's body wasn’t discovered for three years, surrounded by Christmas presents she had been wrapping, and with the TV still on. Newspaper reports offered few details of her life, not even a photograph.

Interweaving interviews with imagined scenes from Joyce’s life, 'Dreams of a Life' is an imaginative, powerful, multilayered quest, and is not only a portrait of Joyce but a portrait of London in the eighties—the City, music, and race. It is a film about urban lives, contemporary life, and how, like Joyce, we are all different things to different people. It is about how little we may ever know each other, but nevertheless, how much we can love.

Uferzone // Zeichnungen von Mechtild Beckmann

Ateliergemeinschaft Milchhof e.V.
Schwedter Straße 232
10435 Berlin
Tel +49 30 50 59 23 38



Ends 14.02.2012

Präsentiert wird eine Serie von Schilfzeichnungen.
Mit der Spiegelreflexkamera dokumentiert Mechtild Beckmann Eindrücke ihrer Streifzüge durch Uferregionen brandenburgischer Gewässer. Neben der Darstellbarkeit der Naturphänomene interessiert die Künstlerin vor allem die Möglichkeiten die Linie auszuloten. In einem langwierigen Zeichenprozess übersetzt sie das Gesehene in eine eigene Sprache, wobei durch die Reduktion auf Schwarz-Weiß, durch die Gleichbehandlung des Realen und des Gespiegelten sowie durch Auslassungen etwas Neues entsteht. Ihre Farbfotografien erfahren eine Transformation in eine Schwarz-Weiß-Tuschezeichnung, ein Abstraktionsprozess, der die Linie zu einem Konstrukt der Zeichen organisiert. Das Gesehene wird gefiltert und strikt in Schwarz-Weiß übertragen. Das tiefe Schwarz der von Beckmann bevorzugten Chinatusche ermöglicht einen starken Hell-Dunkel-Kontrast, der trotz detailreicher Linienbündel dem Auge Klarheit der Formen verschafft.

Zeitkritische Malerei - Thomas Prass

okk/raum 29
prinzenallee 29
13359 berlin-wedding




Ends 17.02.2012

Die Bilder von Thomas Prass sind ein erfrischendes Moment innerhalb der zeitgenössischen Malerei wie mir schon lange keines begegnet ist. Die Arbeiten sind herrlich unkonventionell und die Amerikaner würden es wohl mehrheitlich politically incorrect nennen. Aber gerade diese ehrliche, auf eigener Lebenserfahrung im „Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten“, beruhende Interpretation der real – live Situation ist was diese Kunst so eigenartig macht. Thomas verwendet ureigene Symbolik amerikanischer Malerei, die er im Sinne einer aus News, Fotos und Szenen zusammengestellten Collage, mit Acryl auf der Leinwand wiedergibt.

Sehr interessante und gute Malerei



Weichselstr.8, 10247 Berlin

8pm music performance TUNA PASE


Ends 18.02.2012

Orientations is an exhibition dedicated to the idea of points of references in time and space through the concepts of memory, codes and absence. The works wonder about the personal and collective perception of time. Their dialogue emerges through the overlapping of feelings, duration and signs.

Our idea of time is very codified and scientifically restricted to some codes and systems that become visible in common objects like calendars and watches. Time is measured and captured following rules and concepts commonly shared, but its perception can be something really personal and subjective, linked to our experience, feelings, mind and memory.

Time seems to be very related to movement. We could say that time is movement, because right when everything stops, time seems not to exist anymore. The perception of the movement in the space is a process connected to the mind that reconstructs its routes, variations and gaps. When everything is just alive.

Der Gedanke vom Blick auf eine Zeichnung, die bei jedem Betrachten neue Aspekte eröffnet, die einen Moment der Veränderung in sich trägt, begleitet diese Ausstellung und verbindet die Tätigkeiten der eingeladenen KünstlerInnen. Sie befragen das Medium Zeichnung nach seinen Möglichkeiten und Grenzen – ein Medium, das in allen Epochen der Kunstgeschichte aufscheint und für das immer neue Einsatzmöglichkeiten erdacht wurden.
Das Wissen über die formalen, prozessorientierten Herangehensweisen der konzeptuellen Zeichnung im Gepäck, wagen es die KünstlerInnen, einen bildhaften und narrativen Bezug zur „Welt“ einzugehen.

All working with different mediums and producing works which question a plethora of facts, the artists of ArtCenter/Istanbul refer to social phenomena and bring together different opinions against the oppressive environment of the art market. The endeavor to liberate oneself which forms the essence of artistic creation takes form in different works from sculpture to video installations, drawings to 3D space interventions avoiding a dull expression and utilizing irony.

For the project, more than 750 artists from all over the world work together in one same action: all will carry one fragile object step by step around the planet.
The journey of the object and the works the artists will conceive during the project will be communicated on the website and in regular newsletters.
