Space/Time Berlin

“If something is boring after two minutes, try it for four. If still boring, then eight. Then sixteen. Then thirty-two. Eventually one discovers that it is not boring at all.”
John Cage (1944)

Space/Time Berlin presents its inaugural program for video and performance art, featuring 45 artists (both Berlin-based and international), whose work will be shown around the city throughout the month of April 2016. In cooperation with five different arts institutions, the platform will feature a diverse range of works, with a special focus on art that affects audiences’ experience of time.

Curated by Steffi Kowalski and Matt Wilson, Space/Time presents artists whose work demands time with an audience in order to open up new realms of experience. The one-month program will take place in a new location every week in April, starting at TATWERK | Performative Forschung, then moving to Sophiensaele, Flutgraben e.V.. Projektraum Naunynstr.53 and concluding at the AckerStadtPalast. Over the course of the month, we are interested in removing the separation between what is traditionally considered a screening and what is traditionally considered a performance by presenting these works in the same room, in the same time frame, for the same audience. This means on any given day our program could include documentary shorts alongside contemporary dance; performances for video alongside live multimedia experiments; or experimental theater alongside a short film series. By Presenting these otherwise disparate mediums in the same space, their shared elements can be experienced in a new way--especially the shared element of time.
