WallonWall Exhibition at the Berlin Wall

coverWALLONWALL is an outdoor ‘in situ’ photographic exhibition of 36 huge panoramics pasted directly on the Berlin Wall. The pictures are about the 8 largest separation walls still standing (except  for the Berlin Wall) and were taken by renowned Berlin based documentary photographer Kai Wiedenhöfer, a photographer that relentlessly denounces segregation.

On the longest remaining part of the Berlin Wall at Mühlenstraße in Friedrichshain, 364 m of the wall will be pasted with 36 panoramic pictures, each one being  3 m x 9 m. The pictures are shown on the West side Gallery, the other side of the East Side Gallery wall, facing the Spree.

A photobook, ‘Confrontier‘ is also being released by Steidl about Kai Wiedenhöfer’s photographic work about separation walls, since his latest book Wall in 2007.

The #StillSTAND Project kicks off its first wall with Howtokillagraffiti

The Berlin-based artist howtokillagraffiti inaugurated the #StillSTAND Project by painting the first mural of the 4-part series.

The artist uses graffiti to create a structure and then populates it with various figures and shapes, intertwines them, hides them in plain sight. The outcome is a hybrid work between “painting” and graffiti, blurring the lines between the codified form of graffiti and the freestyle element of modern painting.

To learn more about the artist and his background, read the interview of howtokillagraffiti on the blog platform Urban Presents (in English and German).

WALLS” exhibition extended to March 14th, 2020

We are extending the “WALLS” Exhibition by a fortnight, until Saturday, March 14th, 2020.

“WALLS” is a collective exhibition curated by Cyrille Gouyette and Fabrice Douar (Le Louvre Museum, Paris) with an additional curation by Pascal Feucher (Urban Spree Galerie, Berlin) and featuring 30 international artists from the comics and street art scenes.

Expanding the historical timeline and geographical scope beyond the Fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago, “WALLS” explores the notion of the wall, from Antiquity to contemporary issues, viewed through the lens of artists committed to the public space and whose work is closely related to walls.

The catalogue of the show can be purchased here.

WALLS

Wednesday-Saturday // 12:00-18:30

Free Entry

The next exhibition will be a presentation of recent works on canvas by polish calligraffiti artist Sicoer. Created through different sessions between his hometown of Krakow and a residency in Berlin, “Explorations” is the artist’s most ambitious exhibition to date.

 



First Show of 2020: “WALLS” A Collective Exhibition Featuring 30 International Artists

For their first show of 2020, Urban Spree Galerie presents « WALLS », a collective exhibition featuring 30 international artists. 

Expanding the historical timeline and geographical scope beyond the Fall of the Berlin Wall 30 years ago, “WALLS” explores the notion of the wall, from Antiquity to contemporary issues, viewed through the lens of artists committed to the public space and whose work is closely related to walls.

Curated by Fabrice Douar and Cyrille Gouyette (Le Louvre Museum, Paris) and co-curated by Pascal Feucher (Urban Spree Galerie, Berlin), « WALLS » invites prominent artists from the comics & street art scenes to create graphic works of fiction related to walls, interpreted either as simple architectural elements, ominous symbols of segregation, canvases and vessels to convey meaning, textures, or imaginary playgrounds and labyrinths.

While some antique artefacts appear in the show to testify of their immortal, silent presence, in the 21st Century, the Minotaur doesn’t wait at the center of his realm but has clearly moved outside, demultiplied its presence, and is building more walls.

The exhibition’s direction is therefore resolutely multifaceted, contemporary and graphic-oriented, spanning several topographies (Europe, South Korea, Middle East, Hong Kong, Cuba…), and art forms (painting, photography, installations, videos).
