STATION-Berlin & Aletto Hotel, accessible for the disabled, open-air, free of charge
The open-air walk-by art viewing on the streets and behind windows, as well as the subway-ride art viewing with the U1 and the U3 line at "Wiedererwachen", will take place from December 12th - 20th 2020, in Luckenwalder Strasse at Gleisdreieck at the STATION Berlin and the Hotel Aletto. Art, we are used to enjoying in museums and galleries, is presented inside the windows of three buildings and on 300sqm of private parking lots, as well as on a 10x11 meter terrace facing the subway lines 1 and 3. From the U1 & U3, merely 6 meters from the terrace, the large light sculpture by Dutch artist Peter Vink will be on view for sale. Vink's artwork reflects the recurring element of trinity at this location. The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands is kindly sponsoring Dutch artist Peter Vink.
On the first day of the fair-show, the artist Catherine Lorent and the Finnish musician Amandaid will live stream music from the upper floor of the STATION Berlin. They are supported by the Finnish and the Luxembourg Embassy of Berlin. A QR-Code linking to the live stream will be accessible to each visitor, as well as there is a QR-Code giving you a virtual tour of the fair-show by the organizer Semra Sevin.

The art fair WIEDERERWACHEN reminds us of the power of the independent art scene and subculture of Berlin. WIEDERERWACHEN is an appeal to the art world to come together to reflect on their sense of community and on defying this years’ circumstances, which have led to the cancellation of numerous exhibitions. The initiator and curator of the project is the German photo artist Semra Sevin. She has created a number of artist-run exhibitions over the last years.
In WIEDERWACHEN, 30 artists will transform the parking lots, terrace, and windows of the STATION Berlin and the Hotel Aletto in Luckenwalder Straße at Gleisdreieck, for eleven days, to ultimately create an open-air ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ altogether. The genre ranges from sculptures, photos, paintings, paper works, and light installations to performance art. A large-format light sculpture by Dutch artist Peter Vink can be seen from the U1. Guided tours offer the opportunity to take a closer look at the sculpture and the fair altogether, with the curator Semra Sevin.
The WIEDERERWACHEN fair stands for experimentation with new formats. As Rauschenberg said, “Artists should be witnesses of their time in history”. “We need to conquer new spaces for art.” Semra Sevin, initiator, and curator of the project, says.
WIEDERERWACHEN addresses the Berlin public in a highly individual but collective modus operandi through the voices of a heterogeneous group of interdisciplinary artists.
WIEDERERWACHEN refers to the powerful tradition of a Berlin art world, which initiated unconventional and creative formats over the last decades. The art fair shows that unconventional projects, beyond institutions, are still possible in Berlin.
THE LOCATION in Luckenwalder Straße at Gleisdreieck has become a location with international outreach, since 1875; From a European shipment company to later, a postal station. Last but not least, the STATION-Berlin became known for hosting some of the most prominent European creative venues, as for the renowned ABC art fair. The three buildings allocated for the art fair WIEDERERWACHEN, form a trinity together, just like the Gleisdreieck itself.
THE CURATOR & INITIATOR The initiator of the art fair is the German photo artist Semra Sevin. She is known for her conceptual photographic series and multimedia installations. Sevin questions a one-dimensional view by formally using materials as mirrors, foils, projections, and acrylic glass. Her work examines the subjects of diversity and inclusion. Sevin developed several artist-initiated exhibitions, as ‘Chimera’, in 2019 in Künstlerhaus Bethanien, and ‘Passengers of a Kaleidoscopic Journey’, in the former tobacco factory of Reemtsma in 2018, in Berlin.
