From 21 October 2017 until 8 April 2018, the ZKR – Center for Art and Urban Space Schloss Biesdorf presents its third group exhibition, Shifting Perspectives, in collaboration with the Brandenburg Museum for Modern Art Cottbus & Frankfurt (Oder).
Using the collection of the Brandenburg Museum for Modern Art as a starting point, the exhibition shows the work of 22 artists who focus on the shifting landscapes and urban structures in East Berlin and Brandenburg. Overgrown border zones, cities in transformation and personal stories hint at imminent change or depict the development of public spaces since reunification. Participating artists include Arno Fischer, Seiichi Furuya, Stephanie Steinkopf, Clemens von Wedemeyer, Ulrich Wüst and Tobias Zielony, whose work is set against the architectural sculptures of raumlaborberlin.
IDENTITY, PHOTOGRAPHY AND PUBLIC SPACE
Political, economic and social conditions constantly leave their mark on our environment. At the same time, external structures also shape the people who live within them. The artistic positions presented in the exhibition powerfully convey the significance of public space in the formation of identity. The visual language of the works employs documentary strategies as well as subjective associations. A historical point of reference is the photographic volume Fotografie und Gedächtnis [Photography and Memory], commissioned by the 'Association for Pictorial Research and Contemporary History' in the 1990s. The works shown in Shifting Perspectives are both and creative visual reflections and valuable testimonies.
