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)

Hendrik Czakainski’s Upcoming Exhibition: Nonpoint Sources

Imagine that you are a raindrop. It begins to rain and you hit the ground and flow across streets, parking lots, yards, construction sites, farm fields… Along the way, you pick up litter, oil, grease, metals, rubber, dirt, fertilizers, pesticides, animal waste, and other things left behind. All of these pollutants mix with the rain and flow away as nonpoint source pollution. » (Illinois Environmental Protection Agency).

In Hendrik Czakainski’s previous exhibition at Urban Spree Galerie, « Switch Over » (2018), the famed “invisible hand” of Adam Smith finally achieved its predictable self-strangulation and hinted towards the obliteration of the age of Anthropocene. His powerful works laid bare the rusted skeletons of what was once qualified as habitat. A post-architectural world – and beyond -, in which life subsided on the fringes, a derelict, abstract  and borderless Universum, morbidly fascinating.

For “Nonpoint Sources“, his 4th solo show at Urban Spree, Hendrik Czakainski fills his large wall sculptures with the particles and raindrops of our contaminated civilization, building his imaginary constructions only to let them succumb to the invisible and poisonous streams that run through it. Huge fracture lines dislocate high density environments, Earth is scorched beyond repair, structures are flooded with colored poisons that irrigate the veins of our industrial civilization.

We do not only see the structures, we see the flooding and the elements, we see how the artist skillfully paints and distorts the structures he so patiently erected.

« Check your Privilege »: a new mural by the Low Bros

The Urban Spree Artist Wall is a highly visible wall in Berlin, deploying its painted surface of 120sqm (15 x 8 meters) opposite Warschauer Str.

As is usually the case with most exhibitions, the artists paint the first piece of their show on this wall, resulting in a massive statement work for their indoor exhibition.

« Check Your Privilege » is the 3rd mural painted by the Low Bros at Urban Spree and is perhaps their most significant outdoor work to date as it emphasizes strong cultural and societal points, further developed in their solo show « CON.TXT’ (on display until September 6th, 2020).

In the words of Anna Ptasinska: « With the #BlackLivesMatters movement sweeping the global community, it is now, more than ever, that white people need to acknowledge their responsibility to dismantle oppressive, racist systems. Influenced by the book ‘Exit Racism’ by Tupoka Ogette & Robin DiAngelo’s ‘White Fragility,’ Low Bros have partnered with IDB (Institut für diskriminierungsfreie Bildung), Josephine Apraku and Jule Bönkost for this exhibition. As an educational starting point, this exhibition aims to amplify and continue the conversation surrounding white privilege and asks questions of how it can be better utilized in institutions, as well as private & public spaces. While the search for answers is ongoing, the artworks aim is to highlight the problems of unchecked whiteness, especially when it is being recognized as a default perspective in society. By debunking the concept of privileges and problems, the context of this exhibition aims to engage whiteness as an ally to the BIPOC community. »
