until 15.11. | #0138ARTatBerlin | Between 16th september and 15th november the KW Institute for Contemporary Art shows the new group exhibition “WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE”. The “jungle” at the heart of the exhibition serves as a desired imaginary space, symbolizing the subconscious, potentially dangerous counterpart of the controlled urban environment.
The jungle marks a maximum distance from everyday life, as the name of the best-known discotheque in the history of West Berlin illustrates. In this group show, artistic positions by international and Berlin-based artists investigate ideas of the self and the other, and together draw a mental map of the present and the life forms within it, whether real or merely possible.
Exhibition period: Wednesday, 16th September – Sunday, 15th November 2015Zum KW Institute for Contemporary Art
