Berlin Wonderland: Photography Exhibition

Urban Spree Galerie will be looking back at the golden 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.

The 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

The monograph “Berlin Wonderland” is published and edited by the new Berliner imprint bobsairport, founded by Anke Fesel and Chris Keller.

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

Beyond the Streets L.A.

Beyond the Streets is Roger Gastman’s follow-up show to Art in the Streets, the graffiti and street art retrospective that broke MoCA Los Angeles’ attendance record with 220,000 visitors.

7 years since the MOCA’s groundbreaking exhibition, Roger Gastman invites 100+ artists to showcase their art and create immersive installations over 4000 sqm of industrial indoor and outdoor space in Los Angeles for what will surely become 2018’s most ambitious show: Beyond the Streets.

Beyond the Streets will be opening in Los Angeles on May 6, 2018. Gastman will not only be looking into the roots and historical figures of Graffiti and Street Art, but also take an in-depth look at just how expansive street culture has become in the worlds of contemporary art, photography and other mainstream pop and art movements.

Beyond the Streets will focus on artists with a documented history of mark making and rule breaking as well as a current, robust studio practice primarily derived from the graffiti and street art movements.

Beyond the Streets is not intended to be an historical retrospective but rather an examination of cultural outlaws who embody the spirit of the graffiti and street art culture. The exhibition includes well known artists whose work is influenced or inspired by these risk takers and whose efforts have elevated the movement to new heights.

Among the installations, we can mention a handball court complete with site-specific artwork by famed NYC artist Lee Quiñones drawing inspiration from his lion mural in 1982, FAILE’s Temple, is a highly interactive, life size construction of ceramic, steel, mosaics and prayer wheels that re-conceives historical references from sacred structures that invite play and contemplation from the audience, as well as a historical recreation of the Venice Pavilion, the legendary graffiti and skate destination in Venice Beach, in partnership with adidas Skateboarding.

Roger Gastman is a curator, graffiti historian, urban anthropologist and collector. Gastman founded and co-published Swindle magazine with Shepard Fairey, co-authored The History of American Graffiti and co-produced the Oscar-nominated Banksy documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop.

 



“Vandals”: An Evening with Marc Vallée

Urban Spree Galerie is proud to invite you to an exhibition and talk with London-based documentary photographer Marc Vallée on Friday 22 July 2016 at 20:00.

On the occasion of the release of his new photographic project and photozine “Vandals”, Marc will show images that documents a small London graffiti crew in a city powered by neoliberal ideology and surveillance. The photographer is best known for exploring the tension between public and private space in the context of contemporary youth culture. The talk will be chaired by Berlin-based architect and professor Sandra Bartoli (http://buerofuerkonstruktivismus.de).

Photo by Marc Vallée, 2015. All rights reserved.

The work is visually polemic and rejects the notion of impartiality. Graffiti, defensible architecture, skateboarding and political dissent are just some of the subjects Marc has documented over a career of more then twenty years.

Marc’s pictures, zines and books have been published and exhibited worldwide. Both Tate Britain in London and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City hold his work in its library collections.

Marc’s other published zines (Tiergarten Transgression, Anti-Skateboarding Devices, Number Six, Writers…) will be available in the Urban Spree Bookshop.

Open Air Screening of 'Everybody Street' with a photographic installation by Martha Cooper

10568799_829139180443138_3864849568536326862_nOn Friday August 15th 2014, Urban SpreeUrban NationMobile Kino & W – Doubleyou team up to bring you an exceptional event with the open air projection of Everybody Street, a fascinating documentary on New York City street photography featuring some of Urban Spree’s all-time favorite photographers such as Bruce Davidson, Elliott Erwitt, Joel Meyerowitz, and legendary graffiti & hip hop photographer Martha Cooper.

If you are familiar with the Urban Spree bookstore concept, you know that our hand-picked selection of photobooks is all about street photography, postindustrial sites, urban decay, street art and the underground… So, when Mobile Kino came with the idea of an outdoor screening of this great documentary about NYC street photographers, we were thrilled with the idea, mostly that the film happily blends the genre between street photography in its documentary/classical way with the street art/graffiti scene.

Both the film director –Cheryl Dunn, and Martha Cooper will be exceptionally present for the screening and thereafter.

Cheryl Dunn, who has been documenting the streets of NYC for over two decades, will address the audience through a Q&A session.

1300 images of Martha Cooper will be projected on different screens in a unique gallery installation.

Martha Cooper’s pioneering book (co-authored with Henry Chalfant), ‘Subway Art’, will be available in the bookshop.
