STATION Berlin & Aletto Hotel, accessible for the disabled
curator: Semra Sevin
The group exhibition "Wiedererwachen" will take place from December 5th - 13th 2020, in Luckenwalder Strasse at Gleisdreieck at the STATION Berlin and the Hotel Aletto. Art, which we would normally in museums and galleries, is presented inside the windows of three buildings, on 300sqm of private parking lots, as well as on a 10x11 meter terrace facing the subway line 1. From the U1, merely 6 meters from the terrace, the large light sculpture by Dutch artist Peter Vink will be on view. Vink's artwork reflects the recurring element of the trinity at this location. The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands is kindly sponsoring Dutch artist Peter Vink.
On the first opening evening, the artist Catherine Lorent and the Finnish musician Amandaid will play music from the upper floor of the STATION Berlin. The rooms across the street in the Aletto Hotel will be available for rent for the vernissage and finissage so that the musical performance and the exhibition can be viewed as a whole. These rooms will provide a bird's eye view of the whole event and the art will be seen from afar through a telescope. The Aletto Hotel will be offering drinks and pizza to go.
The artists of "Wiedererwachen" are: Erik Andersen, Jofroi Amaral, Lotta Bartoschewski, Olivia Berckemeyer, Per Christian Brown, Birte Bosse, Andreas Hachulla, Gregor Hildebrandt, Alicja Kwade, Miriam Lenk, Catherine Lorent,
Marius Mathisrud, Toshihiko Mitsuya, Manfred Peckl, Maik Schierloh, Susanne Schirdewahn, Sandra Schlipköter, Nadja Schöllhammer, Miray Seramet, Caro Suerkemper, Zuzanna Zita Skiba, Tracey Snelling, Csilla Szabó, Lucy Teasdale, Philip Topolovac, Peter Vink, Sador Weinsčlucker und Marian Wijnvoord. Musik: Amandaid & Catherine Lorent.
"Wiedererwachen" refers to the long and powerful tradition of independent art and culture in Berlin that initiates unconventional and free creative projects, which transform the current challenges into new creative forms of expression. "Wiedererwachen" addresses the Berlin public in a committed fashion and is accessible to the disabled.
In times of an international pandemic, with its very far-reaching existential effects on the individual life, the social, economic and cultural community, "Wiedererwachen" rises to the challenge of how to continue showing art, with art of the highest quality. Internationally renowned artists* from a wide range of disciplines, media and styles come together at "Wiedererwachen" to address the Berlin public in a highly individual but collective modus operandi.
"Wiedererwachen" reflects on possibilities to show art at a time when countless exhibitions in institutions, museums, art, and cultural events had to be canceled due to Corona. "Wiedererwachen" stands for a spring fever in the arts in this November of unusual challenges.
"Wiedererwachen" is about resistance and an optimistic exchange, about an occasion and a place where artists and their audience can come together - despite Corona and the lockdown; In a time of retreat and isolation, exchange and reflection on community, is virtually indispensable, as it has the power to enable and require artistic communication in particular!
Luckenwalder Strasse has been established as an international exchange spot since 1875 when it started out as a European shipment center for goods and mail. Today, the STATION-Berlin is a multifaceted venue for events and even became one of the best-known locations for art presentations in Berlin and throughout Europe. The three buildings allocated for the exhibition "Wiedererwachen", are located centrally at Gleisdreieck and form a trinity. The three buildings find themselves, where the U1, U2, and U3 subway lines meet. This makes "Wiedererwachen" a central and easily accessible event in Berlin.
The initiator of "Wiedererwachen" is the German photo artist Semra Sevin. As an artist, she works with different techniques such as mirrors, foils, glass, and acrylic, with which she questions a unidimensional explanation of the world. Sevin develops conceptual series and multimedia installations. Beyond her own artistic activity, Sevin has developed a series of exhibitions. For example:
Chimera, Projektraum Bethanien, Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, 2019 https://bit.ly/3pv12VJ Passengers of a Kaleidoscopic Journey, former tobacco factory Reemtsma, Die Wohnkompanie, 2018 https://bit.ly/3pvjEEV
Sevin received her education in Hannover and at Santa Monica College in Los Angeles. She worked internationally for leading fashion and advertising photographers and was a fine art printer for photographers such as Julian Wasser, Tim Zinnemann, and Nick Ut. She lives and works as an independent artist, based in Berlin.
"Wiedererwachen" takes place in public space and is accessible to the abled and disabled.
