Martin-Gropius-Bau // Isa Genzken: “Make Yourself Pretty!”

9th April – 26th June 2016

Isa Genzken is one of the most important artists that Germany has brought to the art world in the recent past. She rose to international fame fresh out of art school, having studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy with Gerhard Richter, whom she married in 1982. Throughout her carreer she has constantly experimented with different media and sources of inspiration. The exhibition at Martin-Gropius-Bau reflects this and displays a broad spectrum of her work.

Starting with her early films, drawings and ellipsoids(sculptures created by a computer programme, which in the 80’s was a groundbreaking and provocative act) influenced by minimalism and conceptual art  – to installation works using Objets trouvé and referencing Realism. No matter what medium she chooses to work with, Isa Genzken always keeps a playful attitude towards her art and the topics she addresses in it: modernity, the human body, portraits, city culture and architecture.

Location: Martin-Gropius-Bau, Niederkirchnerstraße 7, 10963 Berlin

Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) // “Nervous Systems – Quantified Life and the Social Question”

11th March 11 – 9th May 2016

In the Age of the Anthopocene, how is the relationship between man and machine going to develop? What changes have already occurred and how can we deal with this new and changing environment? The HKW has collected an all-star cast of artists, film makers, writers and media historians for a multi-medial, sensory question and answer exhibition. Special treats are the films by harun farocki and vito acconci, as well as the so-called “White Room”, a live installation piece, in which visitors can explore their own digital traces. The room combines artworks (by Ai Wei Wei for example), interactive digital products, films and activists projects to visualize the technology we use every day and how we can regain some control over our data.

A must-see for all fans of the british series “Black Mirror”!

Location: Haus der Kulturen der Welt, John-Foster-Dulles-Allee 10, 10557 Berlin
