ART TRADE IN BERLIN 1933-1945
The exhibition documented the different facets of the trade in Berlin, such as the Aryanization of art galleries, the consequences for its operators and the repression of art dealers, whose concept of art was not tolerated. Other examples demonstrated the profit gallery owners and auction houses gained through forced art sales.
As a member of the working group of the Aktive Museum designing the show I was on the teams researching the topics of exile, the art market after 1945 and the geographic localization of the art trade.
Guided tour to the exhibition: Together with Heike Stange I developed a guide tour on the subject. It stops at 10 stations between Bellevue Straße at Sony Center/Potsdamer Platz and the gallery hotspot of Potsdamer Straße and can be booked individually.
one word. three films. one research.
The starting point of this community art project at tmp5/2 in the Potsdamer Strasse were analog photographic films. Each of us participating in the project worked with three films: black and white, color, slides. The results were not foreseeable as the films had surpassed their expiration date.
I used the films as a means of documentation for my research. The first part dealt with the question: Is a word searchable? For this I went to the German / English meaning of the word for ‘expired’ and its use in artistic, linguistic and philosophical fields. In the second part I took a walk in the English town of Chesham where I used to spend a lot of time in the 1980s. In the third part, I looked for German-English traces, whose sources are rooted in WW II.
