WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY: A BERLIN GROUP SHOW

From 28.04 to 01.05, the Berlin-based art association THE ART UNION presents WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY, a group show featuring artworks by 58 Berlin based artists at the Urban Spree Galerie.

The title of the exhibition is a humorous reference to the official Gallery Weekend Berlin, which takes place at the same time. Urban contemporary art is one of Berlin’s defining characteristics, but will hardly be on display at the official Gallery Weekend whose official map doesn’t even cover the area where Urban Spree is located, albeit quite central. THE ART UNION aims to bridge this gap by presenting diverse artistic perspectives following the idea of ONE CITY – ONE WEEKEND – ONE GALLERY – 58 ARTISTS.

The exhibition WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY is thematically created along the lines of different subgenres and styles of this young genre of art in a non-representative way. The work of all the artists presented in this group show can be found in public spaces, as well as in galleries. Other binding elements are their global citizenship and their generational experience. While all the artists shown at WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY. are Berlin-based, not all of them are German. Some artists originate from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Chile, Japan and Canada, while others come from the Netherlands, Peru, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Spain, Hungary, the USA and the UK. Apart from a few exceptions, all were born after 1980. The exhibition aims to display the richness of urban contemporary art in Berlin. Female artists will not be marginalized, but are in fact a vital part of the group show WHAT THE WEEKEND IS GALLERY.

About THE ART UNION

The non-profit association THE ART UNION is run by key players in the fields of art and culture with expertise in the communication of art, art funding and visual communication. Daily working practice has exemplified a gap between artists, their audience and the art market, which is difficult to overcome. THE ART UNION intends to build a bridge between these aspects and create formats to professionalize artists and initiate discourses within the scenes. The organization of exhibitions and participation in festivals are as much a vital part of the concept as are artist residencies, funding and exchange programmes.

THE ART UNION was founded in 2015 and will receive an entry in the National Register of Associations in the first half of 2016.

Am 27ten November feiert ALBUM LABEL die Veröffentlichungen President Bongo – Serengeti (Alb006) sowie T.Raumschmiere – T.Raumschmiere (Alb007).

Beide Platten erscheinen im Oktober und umfassen die Quintessenz des jungen Shitkatapult Schwester Labels aus dem Hause Random Noize Musick. Marco Haas aka T.Raumschmiere liefert sein siebtes Album ab und spart sich einen Titel. Sein Album, dass er mit Ben Lauber ko-produziert und geschrieben hat, ist ein tolles, ruhiges Schiff auf unrihiger See.
Ein sehr starkes Album im Genrereich Ambient, das er ja früh mit Veröffentlichungen wie Stromschleifen (Shitkatapult) oder Anti (Hefti) beackert hat. Tracktitel wie Anker, Dampfer, Abfahrt rauben einen den Atem. Auf Sleeping Pills and Habits kooperiert er mit der britischen Sängerin Anika auf einem Stück aus Pillen und Rausch. Die gemeinsame Arbeit präsentierten die beiden in voller Länger jüngst beim Festival Pop Kultur zum ersten Mal. Kurz vor seinem Album erscheint ein absurd krudes und tolles Album vom Gus Gus Mann Stephan Stephensen, der seit kurzem in Berlin lebt und auf Srengeti nochmal mit einer Riesenschar Isländischer Musiker und Künstler zusammen arbeitet.
Sein Album ist ein toller Reigen aus elektonika, club musik und conga Wahnsinn, der so organisch daherkommt, wie ein eigenes Land. Umrahmt wird der Abend von Labelmacher Daniel Meteo und dem tollen Thomas Fehlmann, ein bester Freund des Hauses…
