A Vocabulary of Revolutionary Gestures at Galerie im Turm
You are cordially invited to the second part of my exhibition project A Vocabulary of Revolutionary Gestures, opening this Thursday at Galerie im Turm in Berlin-Friedrichshain.
The project combines different modes of interaction with three historical documents. Gestures and movements taken from these are developed into abstracted interventions that address the body as the site and archive of a political event. At the centre of this second part of the project is the video installation “Ein bisschen eine komplexe Situation/A mass is gathering outside”, a reworking of material from the Central Round Table of the GDR from 1989.
On Sun, 7th Dec, the 25th anniversary of the first meeting of the Central Round Table, a talk with invited guests will focus on those radical political demands and practices of the revolution of 1989 that have been over-written, side-lined and obscured by current commemorations of these events as merely the “Fall of the Wall.”
