A group show with:

•Brad Downey • Laure Catugier
•Thomas Bratzke / Zasd
•Mathieu Brohan • Willi Tomes
•Teco de Luccia • Akin

Curated by Verity Oberg, Nika Lenz & Katia Hermann

Freitag: 19 – 22 Uhr
Samstag: 15 – 20 Uhr
Sonntag: 15 – 20 Uhr

The artists look back on the future by way of architectural structures and newly configured spaces. Developing their own retrospective visions of what may or may not happen: Laure Catugier and Aleks Slota create a space-time axis within the gallery walls; lost rooms and palaces are reclaimed by Mathieu Brohan’s experimental films. Pre-nostalgic, futuristic youth movements imagined by Thomas Bratzke aka Zasd hope to re-open horizons while claiming unforeseen struggles and interactive, retro-dystopian in(ter)ventions by Willi Tomes bring the past, present and distant future into a comprehensible, accessible realm. Brad Downey’s pieces playfully reimagine the possible destiny of privatized space and consciousness while Teco’s large scale sculpture on Reuterplatz invites the public to contribute to the inevitable.
