I am really proud to participate in this big exhibition together with some of the greatest contemporary artists of our time.
OPENING on 9th July 2015, 7 - 10 pm - showroom at Kottbusser Straße 10with a concert by ZIGURI (Trance-Rock from Berlin Kreuzberg)
Exhibition: 10th July- 9th August 2015, Tue - Sun, 2 - 7 pm
In their works, the artists of the exhibition reflect on how the fans' flow of passion is articulated, what objects of desire exist, and how the mass media and popular culture respond to the expression of fandom.Adoration and homage, as one might expect, are well represented in the exhibition.
Curator of the exhibition is Christoph Tannert; with curatorial assistance from Miriam Barnitz.
The show is accompanied by an extensive catalogue (design: Tobias Jacob), which will be available in the exhibition and via Künstlerhaus Bethanien (price: € 35, in the exhibition € 29).In the context of the exhibition we will also be presenting an artist's book, edited by Henryk Gericke and designed by MK Kähne, entitled Ink Flag (with German translations of 25 song texts by the band WIRE and a 7" record by TARWATER, 34 pages, 154 copies, price: € 30).
There will also be an accompanying movie programme in collaboration with BrotfabrikKino Berlin and fsk Kino in Kreuzberg (detailed info to come soon).
