– Artist Weekend Berlin 2018 –
In 2015, more than 15.000 visitors to the 4-tägige exhibition, which this year shows more than 150 Künstler, including Roger Ballen, George Baselitz, John Bock, Mat Collishaw, Marlene Dumas, Martin Eder, Gilbert and George, Gregor Hildebrandt, Andy Hope 1930, Jürgen Klauke, Alicja Kwade, Mark Manders, Paul McCarthy, Marilyn Minter, Bruce Nauman, Shirin Neshat, Anselm Reyle, Robin Rhode, Anri Sala and Bill Viola.
Ngorongoro is a collapsed volcanic crater in Central African Tanzania. The paradise that exists here is also home to Africa’s density of predators. The principle of the exhibition is based on this contradiction.
The collision of many individual energies is the basis of the exhibition. In contrast to exhibition curations, the initiators of NGORONGORO trust this Phänomen. The selection of Künstler is not based on üblichen curatorial parameters such as conceptual, discourse-driven or formal brackets, but is intuitive. Künstler invite you to Künstler
The result is a hierarchical confrontation that illustrates the künstlerische coordinate system of the actors and the power of their network. The non-commercial background of the project allows the initiators to invite both internationally known and less known Künstler The combination of künstlerischen positions may seem disparate, but tatsächlich very much refers prägnant to Phänomen, whose importance has so far hardly been discussed: the influence of the networks formed among Künstlern among themselves.
THE EXHIBITION IS INITIATED BY CHRISTIAN ACHENBACH, JONAS BURGERT, ZHIVAGO DUNCAN, ANDREJ GOLDER, JOHN ISAACS, ANDREAS MÜHE UND DAVID NICHOLSON.
Opening: Donnerstag, 26th April, 10 am – 12 pm
Exhibition Period: Freitag, 27th April bis Samstag, 29th April 2018, 10 am bis 12:00 pmZur Sexauer Gallery
