A fictional exhibition, with traces of an imaginary underground space, while at the same the illusion of a running club is deconstructed and simulated.
The Kunstbrücke am Wildenbruch bears a tipping point. Originally serving as a public bathroom, it has now been converted into a public space for art, with the urinals being repurposed as ornamental pieces. The shift in the space’s significance prompts questions about its past and present meaning.
From August 19 to 21 a festival around Kunstbrücke am Wildenbruch takes place as part of DRAUSSENSTADT.
Partly poetic, partly serious and sometimes caricaturistic and humorous , the artists of the exhibition explore our reality and current dystopian visions of the future, as well as the possibilities of protest and escape from them.
Aliens are temporary – a mutating tale is an invitation to think about plural worlds and multiple states of being. It acts as an attempt to break with the logic of human exceptionalism and to overcome binary paradigms between living beings and objects, between the “us” and the “other”.
For the “Über Wasser” (About/Over Water) festival artists were invited to submit proposals for activities in the fields of visual arts, theatre, literature, dance, and music.
