Exhibition "Bodylandscapingtime"


In connection with „Interdisziplinäres Projekt-Forum” (IP-F), and in cooperation with „GeDenkOrt.Charité – Wissenschaft in Verantwortung“ , Lisa Glauer has initiated the presentation of the course "Tasten, Riechen, Hören" of the Institut for Art in Context (UdK) at nGbK.

With works by:
Hasan Aksaygın (in Collaboration with Yener Bayramoğlu), János Brückner, Tina Griffith, Gözde Güngör, Carsten Lisecki, Maria de Sande, Ultraviolett and Hanwen Zhang

The artists developed presentations for the exhibition space based on temporary interventions and explorations produced in the scientific realm of medical science. How do artists read such a semi public research space? How can artists convey that which they find in the gap between knowledge and experience in medical research? Starting point for these explorations was the network of research, science and higher education found on the premise of the Charité Campus Mitte as well as related research of scholars, performance artists, theoreticians, architects, within existing systems of classification.

Visual signs pointing to a strict hierarchical demarcation between the knowledge of the medical experts, with its historically shaped aspiration to objectivity and universality and the subjective experience of human beings that move through the space as patients, relatives of patients and generally interested public. The artists dealt with the question of how the physical and semantic boundaries interact with the bodies moving through this space. The artists explored the location via movement exercises, performative talks, experimental painting, and/or drawing. The exhibition in the ngbk features the result of these collective and individual explorations and talks spilling back into the space and terrain.
