Benhadj & Djilali is a commercial gallery and simultaneously a cultural venue for non-commercial and socially relevant exhibitions and art projects, which aim to attract widespread attention among the public and the media.
Yasmine Benhadj-Djilali, curator of ONE DAY | BERLIN was extending the exhibition and turned the Benhadj & Djilali gallery into a ‘temporary museum’ for the time from 2018 to 2019.
About the museums exhibition: In ONE DAY | BERLIN, an exhibition about the Mexico_US border, Adrian Sierra Garcia transforms the way we perceive and occupy time and space at Benhadj & Djilali Gallery, alluding to the life-threatening challenges people experience when they cross ‘la linea’, the vast frontier, with an omnipresent foreign object reflecting on the violent nature and intruding character of the border wall.
Adrian Sierra Garcia (see photo) wishes to pay tribute to all those inflicted by the ‘iron curtain’ that separates the two nations. At the same time, the artist would like to sensitize the general public to the human conditions happening along the dangerous border.
The gallery is located at Torstraße in Berlin-Mitte.To the exhibitions of Benhadj + Djilali
