Diese Ausstellung befasst sich mit den unmittelbaren Auswirkungen von Grenzregimen. Es sollen jene Geschichten erzählt werden, die üblicherweise nicht öffentlich verhandelt werden. Der Blick auf verschiedene Brennpunkte – die zunehmende Abschottung Europas, die Grenze zwischen den USA und Mexiko und die militarisierten Ökosysteme des Jordan – zeigt, dass die Kontexte sich unterscheiden. Jedoch sind die Prinzipien des Ausschlusses und der Repression oft ähnlich. Können Grenzphänomene als Teil einer größeren, neoliberalen Agenda untersucht werden? Mediale Bilder tragen zur Umsetzung dieser Agenda bei und gewöhnen uns an eine zunehmend gewaltvolle Realität. Künstler_innen, die mit Grenz-Kontexten vertraut sind, sind eingeladen, für die nGbK neue Arbeiten zu entwickeln.

Hillary Mushkin “Incendiary Traces”
What color is the EU border? To find out, Incendiary Traces sketched inside Frontex’s surveillance headquarters in Warsaw and at the Hellenic Coast Guard, its key affiliate in Athens. Answer: Blue. Frontex logo blue, corporate office lighting blue, EUROSUR map blue, Mediterranean sea and sky blue.
Vienne Chan “Tax Management – An Introduction. As part of the project: Legal Disobedience, Or How to Avoid Paying Taxes"
It is sensible and wise to manage your tax obligations. In this lecture, 18884930 Ltd. will discuss how Israeli citizens can optimise their taxes as a legal method for civil disobedience.
Ellie Frouderaki (Gast) “Amar"
Amar is an ongoing audio project that started in Greece in May 2017. It is based on recordings of a sequence of recitations of a song which represents a random cultural starting point on the map of the most popular immigration routes of the world.
A similar format is going to be used for the project's presentation, with a real time experimentation on the alteration of oral cultural expressions when they travel through different people sitting in a circle. How is a foreign phrase perceived and how is it transmitted within a sequence of people when it remains foreign to all? Is the incomprehensible resulting phrase legitimate as such or it constitutes a cultural monstrosity? How can we socially interpret this alteration of oral forms?
Miguel Buenrostro “Heterotopias” (otras utopias)
Heterotopias is a contemplation of the city of Tijuana throughout spaces and places that reflect on the resistance in urban life, the erasure of city memory, and the border's geopolitical forces manifested in the transformation of the architectural spaces.

Start: nGbK

mit Yann Colonna, Duygu Kaban, Mareike Hornof.
Join the free tour „Urbanborderland“ and become part of an unique experience. If you think borders are something distant somewhere in the desert, then let us take you through some of the different Urbanborderlands of everyday life. Starting at nGbk, via Lausitzer-Platz, we will zig-zag the “Görlitzer-Park” and look at its magnificent history, then cross the former GDR Border and have some Mexican Tacos while chatting about administrative zoning at “Wagenburg Lohmühle”. After our little snack we'll continue our walk towards “Lohmühlenbrücke” while deconstructing Gender, then move on to the “Thielenbrücke” to look at the latest fashion trends and finally get to rest with a picturesque view on “Dreiländereck”. An additional boot trip to the Molecule Man can be booked on demand. Food and drinks will be served all along the tour.

Performative Lesung “Gute Schleuser, schlechte Fluchthelfer” (dt/en)

[...]


von Birgit Auf der Lauer und Caspar Pauli

In einer performativen Lesung erzählen Birgit Auf der Lauer und Caspar Pauli Fragmente der Geschichten, Informationen und Dokumente von ehemaligen Westberliner Schleuserbanden und von denen, die heute am griechisch-türkischen Grenzfluss Evros arbeiten. Obwohl beide Gruppen serviceorientiert sind, kriminelle Mittel nutzen und Menschen gefährden, hört man in der hiesigen öffentlichen Debatte nur von guten "Fluchthelfern" oder schlechten "Schleusern".
--------
Since graduating in 2011 from the art academies of Berlin Birgit Auf der Lauer & Caspar Pauli work together. The duo's immediate and culturally diverse neigbourhood of Neukölln (a district in Berlin) is moving the artists and their work, sometimes towards research trips to other cities or countries, sometimes just a few metres down the streets of Neukölln.
Their works have been shown at various galleries of the city of Berlin, Depot Istanbul, nGbK, Maxim Gorki Theatre, the Academy of the Arts of the World, Goethe Institute Cairo and Bogota, at the NSU Tribunal in Cologne and National Museum of Contemporary Art in Bucharest.

Finissage: Performance Dinner “Re/flecting the Border” von Margarita Certeza Garcia (en)

[...]


“Re/flecting the Border” is a performance piece that goes beyond the boundaries, creating a temporary dialectical heterotopia that opens questions around globalization, citizenship and migration. Incorporating sensory modalities often disarticulated into their components in contemporary art (sculpture, performance, food and music) it translates them into the vernacular. Although the elements of a ‘feast’ are included, it does not aim to satisfy corporeal hunger, but rather provoke dialogue, or even engender disgust. Designed to be viewed, handled, inhaled and ingested, food is not only substance but also meaning. The work functions as both a performing object and small reminder of the surfeit of consumption that fuels the exploitation of workers and migrants worldwide.
