Exhibition: Art in the Underground 2018. Katharina Sieverding - EXTENDED!Friday, 30 November 2018 — Saturday, 02 March 2019
Open: Thu-Sat 15:00-19:00
Organized by: neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst
(The exhibition is closed: 16 Dec 2018 - 9 Jan 2019)
On show in Hellersdorf are works by Katharina Sieverding previously installed in public space: »Deutschland wird deutscher«, »Die Pleite« and »Global Desire I + II«
They stand in dialog with the parallel exhibition of billboard posters at Alexanderplatz Underground station: On the one hand, Hellersdorf is the destination of a trip undertaken by two contemporaries who meet on the platform at Frankfurt/Main Airport. On the other, there is a motif consisting of overlapping visual planes: the model of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp and the Holocaust Monument, the Monument for the Murdered Jews of Europe, in Berlin-Mitte. The pictorial composition is intended to spur reflection on the reasons for the current radical resurgence of exclusion, right-wing populism, racism and anti-Semitism.
