tacheles-buch

In 1990, the artist group Tacheles occupied in a temporary legal vacuum between the fall of the wall and Germany’s reunification parts of the decaying department store Wertheim in Oranienburger Straße and saved it for the time being from demolition. It developed to a unique art, action and event center, which was legendary for its mix of art and chaos. Until its eviction in September 2012, Stefan Schilling documented the history of this unique project with his photographs. He was one of the first who joined the artists’ initiative and the last who was expelled by the police during the evacuation of the area.

Stefan Schilling was part of the the underground Super 8 Film scene in the GDR. During his time at Tacheles he worked as a painter, graphic designer, silk screen printer, curator and photographer. Is currently working as assistant professor for graphic design.

“TACHELES – die Geschichte des Kunsthauses in Fotografien von Stefan Schilling”

Performance: MARVA+MASCHIN-KLAN

Laudatio von Andreas Rost (Mitbegründer des Tacheles, Footgraf, Kurator, Dozent)

Die Künstlergruppe Tacheles besetzte 1990 im vorübergehend rechtsfreien Raum zwischen Mauerfall und Wiedervereinigung Teile des verfallenen Kaufhauses Wertheim an der Oranienburger Straße und rettete es vorerst vor dem Abriss. Es entwickelte sich ein einmaliges Kunst-, Aktions-und Veranstaltungszentrum, das mit einer Mischung aus Kunst und Chaos legendär war – bis zu seiner Räumung im September 2012. Stefan Schilling erzählt in seinen Fotografien die Geschichte dieses einzigartigen Projektes. Er war einer der Ersten, die sich der Künstlerinitiative anschlossen und der Letzte, den die Polizei bei der Räumung des Geländes verwies.

Über den Autor

Stefan Schilling kommt aus der Super-8-Film Undergroundszene der DDR. Er war im Kunsthaus Tacheles als Maler, Grafiker, Siebdrucker, Kurator und Fotograf tätig. Heute ist er als Dozent für Grafik Design tätig.

“Berlin Calling” Book Launch Party and Discussion

The American, Berlin-based author Paul Hockenos will present his latest book Berlin Calling: A Story of Anarchy, Music, the Wall and the Birth of the New Berlin (The New Press) at Urban Spree Galerie on June 17, 2017.

An exhilarating journey through the subcultures, occupied squats, and late-night scenes in the anarchic first few years of Berlin after the fall of the wall Berlin Calling is a gripping account of the 1989 “peaceful revolution” in East Germany that upended communism and the tumultuous years of artistic ferment, political improvisation, and pirate utopias that followed. It’s the story of a newly undivided Berlin when protest and punk rock, bohemia and direct democracy, techno and free theater were the order of the day.

In a story stocked with fascinating characters from Berlin’s highly politicized undergrounds—including playwright Heiner Müller, cult figure Blixa Bargeld of the industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten, the internationally known French Wall artist Thierry Noir, the American multimedia artist Danielle de Picciotto (founder of Love Parade), and David Bowie during his Ziggy Stardust incarnation—Hockenos argues that the DIY energy and raw urban vibe of the early 1990s shaped the new Berlin and still pulses through the city today.

Just as Mike Davis captured Los Angeles in his City of Quartz, Berlin Calling is a unique account of how Berlin became hip, and of why it continues to attract creative types from the world over.

Paul Hockenos is an American journalist and author who writes for The Nation, the Chronicle of Higher Education, Foreign Policy, the New York Times, and many other media outlets. He has held prize fellowships with the American Academy in Berlin, the European Journalism College, the German Marshall Fund of the United States, and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He is the author of three books, including Joschka Fischer and the Making of the Berlin Republic, and lives in Berlin.

“Can unruly artists change the world? Or do they just provide the soundtrack to history? The Berlin of the 1980s is famous for two things: a wild counterculture and the surprising end of the Cold War. Paul Hockenos, who knows the city inside out, brings them together in a fast-paced, sometimes astonishing story of underground clubs, squatters, and dissidents.” Brian Ladd, author of The Ghosts of Berlin

Berlin Wonderland, holding back the years

To start the month of June, we are looking back at the golden and rough years of Berlin after the fall of the Wall, with an exhibition of 50+ black and white photographs linked to the release of the self-published book “Berlin Wonderland” (bobs airport/Gestalten).

berlin-wonderland_1

Berlin Wonderland is a grassroots testimony on the post-Cold War Berlin from artists and activists that were living the rebirth of Berlin in those years of re-enchantment. The exhibition displays a selection of 50 iconic photographs -out of the 200 pictures that make the book- from 7 photographers who were part of this period, living an era of freedom in the Haupstadt.

berlin_wonderland_front_04The exhibition is mainly focused around the central figure of Ben de Biel.

Ben de Biel is at the crossroads of documentary photography (in the same vein as Atget), vernacular photography & memorial work. It is also a prime testimony about the vitality of the Berlin bohême in the 90’s, the squat movement, a counter-culture that largely structured what represents Berlin today, a state-of-mind between club culture and libertarianism.

The photographic exhibition, “Berlin Wonderland”, will be held at Urban Spree Galerie Berlin on 05-08 June 2014. On this occasion, the book will also be signed by the photographers and be available for sale.

In addition, Ben de Biel’s original photographs are available for sale at Urban Spree Galerie and online here

Photographs by Ben de Biel, Hendrik Rauch, Philipp von Recklinghausen, Stefan Schilling, Hilmar Schmundt, Andreas Trogisch, and Rolf Zöllner.
