About the exhibition «Between Spaces»:
How do political and economic interests shape the urban environment? Which boundaries and power structures are encoded in it? And which creative media can be used to make them visible and overcome them?
In Between Spaces, 15 artists examine questions and contradictions found in urban life. The exhibition places work by Gordon Matta-Clark and perspectives on East Berlin into a dialogue with current artistic positions.
The featured artists appropriate unused spaces and lend new forms to the inconspicuous spaces in-between. From 1970s New York to 1980s East Berlin and the global village of today, the exhibition brings together these various frames of reference – thus itself shifting “between spaces”. A historical point of departure is the pioneering work of Gordon Matta-Clark, the New York artist who began cutting buildings in the 1970s to reveal their innermost core, and who created places of social interaction on urban wastelands. Matta-Clark revolutionised the practice of art in the public realm, and to this day remains a source of inspiration for contemporary artists.
