Der Warschauer Aufstand in der Popkultur

On October 26th, 2014, the Warsaw Uprising Museum, the Polish Institute in Berlin and Urban Spree invite you to a panel discussion about the legacy, meaning and appropriation of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising on Street Art, Pop Culture, and on the younger european generations.

Sophia Hirsch

This event will unfold with a panel discussion with Jan Oldakowski, director of the Warsaw Uprising Museum in Warsaw, Prof. Klaus Theweleit, Dr. Iwona Kurz and moderated by Martin Conrads (UdK). 

On the days preceding the discussion, 2 street artists will paint the Urban Spree Artist Wall facing Warschauer Str. with a collaborative mural in connexion with the Warsaw Uprising. Urban Spree curates this section of the event and invited with the support of the Polish Institute Magda Drobczyk (Drobczyk+Kopaniszyn), street and multimedia artist from Katowice, and Sophia Hirsch from Berlin to paint our 12 x 7 m wall. 

Der Warschauer Aufstand in der Popkultur” event will mark the conclusion of the exhibition “Warsaw Uprising of 1944” at Berlin’s Topographie des Terrors. The exhibition presents the history of Warsaw after 1918. Special emphasis is placed on the 63 days of the Warsaw Uprising. The end of the exhibition shows pictures of Warsaw in the years after it was subjected to totalitarianism. The exhibition is shown at the site where from 1933 to 1945 the central offices of Heinrich Himmler’s SS state had been located. It was here that the fate of Warsaw and its residents was sealed: Hitler ordered the city to be completely destroyed after the start of the uprising. Himmler and the high-level SS leaders acting on his instructions were mostly responsible for this. They were also responsible for the ruthless military suppression of the uprising by the SS and police in cooperation with the Wehrmacht, as well as for the terror inflicted on Warsaw’s civilian population, which cost tens of thousands of lives.

Im Dokumentationszentrum Topographie des Terrors ist bis zum 26. Oktober die Ausstellung „Warschauer Aufstand 1944” zu sehen.

Der Warschauer Aufstand ist seit Jahrzehnten Gegenstand zahlreicher Debatten und beschäftigt nicht nur Historiker. Der dramatische Freiheitskampf ist auch 70 Jahre nach seinem Scheitern tief im Bewusstsein der Warschauer verankert. Junge Generationen spüren die Präsenz der Ereignisse des Jahres 1944 und beteiligen sich rege an allen Formen des Gedenkens. Mittlerweile fand der Warschauer Aufstand Eingang in die Popkultur und inspirierte zahlreiche Künstler und Kulturschaffende zur kreativen Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema. Dabei ist die Graffitikunst eine der sichtbarsten Formen des künstlerischen Umgangs mit Geschichte und zeigt anschaulich die Haltung der jungen Generation.

Parallel zur Podiumsdiskussion, bei der Experten der Frage nachgehen, inwiefern junge Künstlergenerationen das Geschichtsbild zu prägen vermö-gen, werden die polnischen und deutschen Graffitikünstler Drobczyk+Kopaniszyn, Multimedia Design Studio und Sophia Hirsch gemeinsam ein Wandbild als thematischen Hintergrund zur Diskussion gestalten.

Begrüßung:

Jan Ołdakowski
(Direktor des Museums des Warschauer Aufstands)

Podiumsdiskussion mit:

Klaus Theweleit
(Literaturwissenschaftler, Kulturtheoretiker und Schriftsteller)

Dr. Iwona Kurz
(Leiterin der Abteilung Film und Audiovisualität am Institut für Polnische Kultur der Warschauer Universität)

Moderation: Martin Conrads (UdK)

Daniel T. Geiger: "Alles braucht seine Zeit"

Daniel T. Geiger (http://mongomania.tumblr.com/) komponiert und arrangiert Malerei und Schriftgrafik mit gefunden Gegenständen zu collagenhaften Gesamtinstallationen.

ZEIT_FLYER_A5-01-01Diese Sammlungen zeigen deutlich die Herkunft des Künstlers, der in den späten 1990ern die Graffiti- und Streetartkultur für sich entdeckte und mit seinen Sammlungen von Bildern, Objekten und Zitaten seine Umwelt kommentiert.

Zur Ausstellung “Alles braucht seine Zeit” in der Urban Spree Galerie – upstairs, darf sich ganz in Ruhe mit seiner Arbeit beschäftigt werden. Geiger baut einen Ausstellungsraum, im Raum, der jeweils nur durch eine Person betreten werden darf. Alle 15 Minuten kann ein_e neue_r Besucher_in eintreten.

“NUR 15 Minuten rein raus. ZZSCH. SCHLRF.. SCHWFL. Du kommst und gehst. Der Raum im Raum und die ZEIT die es dort zu verbringen gibt sind 15 also 1 für jeden. Wie das Aussieht muss man sich selbst vorstellen können oder anschauen kommen. Es gibt was zu sehen und zu sagen. Wirst Du es wagen..? nur für den Reim.”

“Alles brauch seine Zeit” is the 4th in the series of Urban Spree Artist Curated Shows after Sophia HirschTomasz Kobialka, and Frank Dyballa.

The exhibition is curated by Urban Spree resident artist Johannes Mundinger.

Urban Spree Gallery presents: The CIRCLE SHOW

A group exhibition featuring a selection of Berlin based artists within our creative network.

Urban Spree is not only an exhibition space but also a cultural melting pot. Since it was found last year, we’ve already built a vibrant community attracting local creatives as well as artists from all over the world. For the first Circle Show, we’ve invited a great lineup of artists to create each an original art piece, resembling the shape of a circle.

The idea of the circle represents our circle of friends that made Urban Spree an amazing place. We are looking forward to showcase the best creatives in Berlin who are closely connected to us.
