Ammar Al-Beik | ONE TO FREE | Haus am Waldsee | 09.03.-05.05.2019

until 05.05. | #2400ARTatBerlin | Haus am Waldsee shows since 9th March 2019 the exhibition ONE TO FREE by the artist Ammar Al-Beik.

Born in Damascus in 1972, Ammar al-Beik, filmmaker and photographer who has received many awards, stands like hardly any other Syrian artist of his generation for the experimental film of his country. Since the early 2000s his works have been shown at international film festivals in Venice and Berlin, among others, but they have also been shown in museums in New York, Paris, Seoul and Tokyo. Al-Beik came to Berlin in 2014 via Beirut and Dubai, where he now lives and works. ONE TO FREE provides a first overview of his work in a German art institution.

In terms of content, the works on display range from the search for a new Syrian identity, to the uprisings of the opposition in Damascus, to the immediate present in which the filmmaker reflects on his life in exile in Berlin. Ammar al-Beik portrays his surroundings poetically and highly politically, personally and with a wide awake gaze.
