NBK displaced

Artistic interventions/interactions in public space
Neuer Berliner Kunstverein and various locations in Berlin-Mitte
20.30h public discussion with the artists

Curator: Kathrin Becker, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (NBK)
Artists: Maria Thereza Alves, Edgar Arceneaux, Danica Dakić, Šejla Kamerić, Stih & Schnock

In response to the project “De/construction of Monument” in Bosnia-Herzegovina and inspired by stays in Sarajevo, six artists are currently developing works for display in public spaces in Berlin. These works relate the state of postwar society in Sarajevo and the function of public memory to the German capital and the “economy of attracting attention,” the dominant western mode of media representation. The fleeting quality of the selected art forms contrasts with the sheer materiality of classical monuments and their susceptibility to ideological abuse.
