bodies without organs* | Gallery Under The Mango Tree | Berlin | Finissage + Artist Talk

bodies without organs
extending experimental processes between Berlin and Tel Aviv 
an artist talk by Lila Chitayat & Gabi Schillig 

The artists will speak about their collaborative-intuitive approach and how it manifests itself as a result of a common terminology. How did the differences between Tel Aviv and Berlin manifest themselves? How far does the view from the window go? How does the public space sound? And can you hear the width of the street, the materiality of the houses? 

Finissage: 14.10.2021 – 19.00h 

Gallery Under The Mango Tree
Liebling Haus

Marta Herford | Look! Revelations on Art and Fashion | Exhibition

"Fashion has always been a delicate balance between social norms and individual self-expression. Today more than ever, however, the focus is on questions of functionality and shelf-life, consumption pressure and production conditions. At the same time, garments are being produced, worn and discarded in unprecedented quantities and speed. In our contemporary world, fashion has become a complex system of meaning, in which affiliation, self-representation, style and pretensions are reflected.It is this very symbolic force that contemporary artists use for fascinating expeditions to our everyday lives. Beyond compulsive consumerism and design icons, in this major theme exhibition they make fashion experienceable as an exciting narrative about our complex society." /text_ marta herford

bodies without organs* | Re_Public | Liebling Haus | Tel Aviv, Israel | Exhibition

"In this project, the Liebling Haus - a new cultural center in a historical residential building - seeks to declare itself as Public Space, an elusive inconsistent concept, especially these days. To this end, the Center’s staff embarks on a journey of learning, rites of passage and stays - a necessary step in converting the spaces of the house from a residential apartment to a public place. (...) The works featured throughout the building (some will be displayed in the spring) explore public space as they shift between two points of view: internally - from within the house, and from the city to our surroundings, reviewing our behavior in public space and the new civic discourse created within it. The project, which began to take shape before the pandemic, expanded into new dimensions, evolving and extending over an unknown period.

Recently, public and private space has been redefined for all of us, shrinking and expanding according to requirements and regulations, augmenting the limits of our physical and mental abilities. Attempting to capture the right moment - between one lockdown and another, one political struggle and the other - we defined the building as a time and public space capsule, which will allow us to redefine these concepts through the transition between the building’s spaces, providing additional perspectives on public space for us, as individuals and citizens.

Like public space in those challenging times, the project will also change its nature according to health regulations. Sometimes it will be an exhibition, sometimes a festival or event, but it will always be accessible online." (text_ liebling haus, tel aviv)

bodies without organs* | Gallery Under The Mango Tree | Berlin | Exhibition

For the exhibition project "bodies without organs*" the artists Lila Chitayat and Gabi Schillig explore the relationship between space, body and sculpture. Three fragments that occupy the exhibition space as "satellites" were transferred as an idea from Liebling Haus Tel Aviv to the Gallery Under The Mango Tree in Berlin. Their use is open: you can sit on them, touch them, relate your own body. In the universal space for communication and action, encounters with a hybrid organism can take place on a multi-sensory level. Chitayat and Schillig overcome supposed spatial boundaries and place the body in an intuitive relationship to the enviornment and material, to explore the relationship between interior and exterior, the architectural and corporal aspects, challenging the body´s behaviour within this space and the intangible emotions it evokes.

A public institution, Liebling Haus - The White City Center, a German Israeli cultural hub that promotes urbanism, architecture and conservation in Tel Aviv, commissioned this work, curated by Sharon Yaron, as part of their larger exhibition "Welcome to the Re_Public", inviting visitors to engage in an interactive exploration of today´s re.emerging Agora. The Gallery Under the Mango Tree proudly continues this dialog in Berlin.

in reference to the term „body without organs“, stated by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari (see also: "A Thousand Plateaus - Capitalism and Schizophrenia“, 1987)

"Wo liegen im Kontext gesellschaftlicher (Kultur-)Räume die wesentlichen Herausforderungen einer sich immer stärker diversifizierenden Gesellschaft, einer Gestaltung und klaren Zuordnung von Räumen und Architektur sowie deren gleichzeitigen Mechanismen der Ausgrenzung unterschiedlicher gesellschaftlicher Gruppen oder einer rasanten Entwicklung digitaler Innovation?
Barbara Holzer lädt drei Persönlichkeiten aus Wissenschaft, Medien, Kunst und Kulturpolitik ein, die sich mit (Kultur-)Räumen beschäftigen und mit ihrem unterschiedlichen Erfahrungsschatz in einer angeregten Debatte neue Zusammenhänge zu Architektur und (Frei-)Raum zu eruieren." (text: WIA 2021)

Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst | FHNW Basel | Fachbeirat

"Ein Ziel des Fachbeirats wird es sein, dass sich dessen Vertreter*innen in doppelter Hinsicht als Multiplikator*innen für die Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst FHNW einsetzen: Einerseits bringen sie ihr externes Fachwissen aus der Arbeitswelt durch einen regelmässigen Austausch ein und sensibilisieren die Hochschule bestmöglich auf die Bedürfnisse des Arbeitsmarkts. Andererseits etablieren sie neue Schnittstellen, um das regionale, nationale und internationale Netzwerk der Hochschule mit relevanten Kontakten zur Förderung des vierfachen Leistungsauftrags zu erweitern sowie neue Schnittstellen für den Übertritt der Studierenden in das Berufsleben zu initiieren."

ANCB Berlin | d.fragmentation | Talk

Fragmentarische Positionen zur digitalen, hybriden und analogen Lehre in der Architektur

Mit einer Ausstellung in der Berliner BDA-Galerie und einem Symposium im ANCB Berlin werden aktuelle Positionen zur digitalen Lehre im Architekturstudium thematisiert. Die Themen sind zentralen Formaten des Architekturstudiums gewidmet: dem Studio, der Werkstatt, der Bibliothek und der Exkursion. Wie verändern sich diese im digitalen Wandel? Wie fügt sich die fragmentierte Lehre wieder zu einem Ganzen? Was fehlt und welche Dimensionen gewinnt die Lehre durch neue Medien und verändertes Nutzerverhalten?

Der Ausstellungstitel d.fragmentation steht für die Erfahrung des fragmentierten Lehrens und Lernens und gleichermaßen für die Methode der digitalen Defragmentierung, mit der zusammengehörigen Teilen ein zusammenhängender Speicherplatz zugewiesen wird, um die Zugriffsgeschwindigkeit zu verbessern.

d.fragmentation ist eine Kooperation der BDA Galerie des Bundes Deutscher Architektinnen und Architekten BDA Landesverband Berlin e.V. mit der Bochum University of Applied Sciences.

Als begleitendes Rahmenprogramm zur Ausstellung ist die digitale Lehre auch Gegenstand der Vorträge von

Prof. Gabi Schillig, UdK Berlin
Prof. Martin Fröhlich, EPFL Lausanne
Prof. Sven Pfeiffer, Hochschule Bochum
zu Studio, Zeichnung, Modell, Recherche und Exkursion
