LETTERS FROM… Art in the Greek Periphery Just Keeps Going

The artist and writer Christos Mouchas is giving us an insight into the current exhibition that is taking place at K-Gold Temporary Gallery, a non-profit, nomadic art platform on the Greek Island of Lesvos.
Setting a strong and adamant point this project – already in its 6th year – is full-on what “Letters from…” is about!

DOUBLE TROUBLE DANCE EDITION with Nelly Hakkarainen and Wooguru Kw

I first encountered Wooguru Kw´s ferocious dance and craft at the „salon revolutionär ‘at Platoon Berlin, in 2010. It was a program that merged art and tech and he was collaborating for this with a composer and media artist, another dancer and an opera...

INTRODUCING Guglielmo Castelli

  When, two years ago, we first encountered the work of Italian artist Guglielmo Castelli at Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin, we found ourselves borne off into a poetical darkness, to a dimension that left us with an unhealthy longing for the kind of...

SPECIAL Eigenbedarf in den Uferhallen

Raumnot und Verdrängung sind in ganz Berlin zu spüren. Davon sind längst auch Ateliers und Ausstellungsräume der 'Kunstmetropole' wie das Gelände der Uferhallen im Wedding  betroffen. Vor rund 12 Jahren haben Künstler*innen den rund 9.000 m² großen Backsteinkomplex,...

STUDIO VISITS Hajime Mizutani at Künstlerhaus Bethanien

STUDIO VISITS Hajime Mizutani at Künstlerhaus Bethanien

A white space. The morning light has just passed. Atmospheric sounds of Brian Eno's New Space Music fill the room. The sound of boiling water. Hajime Mizutani, a current Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien resident, welcomes me to his studio and invites me to a Japanese oolong tea. His studio is very clean. There are no brushes, no paint stains or any traces of creative artist chaos.

ART & ACTIVISM with Liina Klauss

ART & ACTIVISM with Liina Klauss

What happens when you let the apocalypse look like a rainbow? We asked environmental artist Liina Klauss "the" three questions and all you have to do is read, watch the images arising before your inner eye and let your heart go vroum! … and hopefully join her on her journey to change our society through art!

INTRODUCING Maria Thurn und Taxis

INTRODUCING Maria Thurn und Taxis

Her "beings" often have a totem-like quality, something fine and dense but also chaotic, wild and well yes, intangible. They are unmistakably hers. I love imagining them as creatures gathering around her when she is working in her studio. I clearly remember the first...

MON CŒUR FAIT VROUM with David FeBland

MON CŒUR FAIT VROUM with David FeBland

In the right context, repetitions can be a beautiful thing – or to put it another way, less can indeed be more. So the tradition of the so-called "Three questions" – an easy way of finding out what it is that drives artists in their work – seems a natural fit for...

SPECIAL leikela featuring Edie Monetti, Rahel Gorten und Alexander Warhus

SPECIAL leikela featuring Edie Monetti, Rahel Gorten und Alexander Warhus

While reading Magda Grüner's text to introduce “Grimpo”, Edie Monetti's 13 octopus-objects, for leikela’s latest exclusive art edition, I not only instantly fell for the “brightly colored, shiny little bodies with black beady eyes“, as she describes them, but also found myself in a swirl of emotions. I felt a deep longing for the sea and an appreciation of the beauty both of Grüner's writing and the precious artwork objects she describes. Let’s face it, this is not something a press text usually achieves.
