Book Release & Exhibition: Tacheles-Buch by Stefan Schilling

Urban Spree proudly presents:”TACHELES – die Geschichte des Kunsthauses in Fotografien von Stefan Schilling”, a book release and print exhibition about the story of the defunct and cult Berliner Kunsthaus by one of his longstanding photographers.

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.

Matthias Gephart: Rare Shots On Planet X

Urban Spree proudly presents “Rare Shots on Planet X – The Disturbanity Book” – an exuberant solo exhibition and book presentation by german artist Matthias Gephart.

12321329_1121888391176567_5810168556477288473_n

The Berlin-based artist, whose spectrum ranges from graffiti and typography to collage, illustration and photography, combines this variety of disciplines in a virtuoso manner. The continous fusion of art and life is programmatic here in the graphic melting pot named Disturbanity.

The monograph retraces punk and graffiti and their mutual impact as significant inspirations which extends the artist’s personal story to an assemblage of alternative and attitude, of urban subculture and DIY.” (Annika Hirsekorn, Neurotitan Galerie)

Matthias Gephart’s monograph “Rare Shots on Planet X – The Disturbanity Book” is a journey through 25 years of visual creation. The show will present its content to the Berlin audience for the first time on a large-scale level. Self-financed via crowdfunding, released by publishing house Kettler at the Frankfurt book fair in 2015 and awarded by New Yorks art and design magazine Creative Quarterly, the limited edition book is available at Urban Spree and will be signed for you by the artist at the vernissage evening.

In a positive way: Overkill!” (Andreas Löhr, Fliehende Stürme)

Mobile Kino presents: SOMETHING MUST BREAK

Mobile Kino presents: SOMETHING MUST BREAK
Berlin based filmmaker Ester Martin Bergsmark presented his film during the 2015 Berlin Feminist Film Week alongside lead actress Saga Becker who just received a Swedish Film Award, Guldbaggen, for her debut role as Sebastian/Ellie.

11010299_977507828939605_1928074610661248575_n
SOMETHING MUST BREAK is a love story between two young men where one is the androgynous Sebastian and one is Andreas who is not gay. They form a unity. It’s them against the polished Swedish Ikeasociety. They dream about escaping boredom and the risk of becoming what everyone else is. And then there is Ellie – the superwoman growing inside of Sebastian who Andreas loves and fears. This is the summer when everything happens and both of them will choose paths that will determinate their lives forever. It’s a battle for love where Sebastian finally has to realise that he has to let Ellie loose, find the strength within himself and not let his happiness depend on someone else.

SHE PAST AWAY(TR) ist eine Dark-Wave Band aus der Türkei. Ihre Musik beinhaltet Elemente 80’s wave und post-punk Elemente, begleitet von retro drum machine beats und dunklen türkischen Texten die einzigartig gesungen werden. Die Band wurde im Jahr 2006 gegründet und veröffentlichte 4 Jahre später ihre erste EP “Kasvetli Kutlama”. Das Debütalbum “Belirdi Gece” erschien 2012. Belirdi Gece ist außerdem als Vinylplatte erhältlich…

GOLDEN APES(GER) – Es ist die Schwierigkeit einer starren Definition und ihre Wandlungsfähigkeit, die der Band einen besonderen und von Anspruch geprägten Status innerhalb der abseits vom Mainstream gelegenen Musiklandschaft verliehen hat.
Angefangen beim Bandnamen, der den Schriften Friedrich Nietzsches entlehnt ist, bis hin zum bildgewaltig und surrealistisch geprägten Oeuvre, das musikalisch geführt wird von den poetischen Texten Peer Lebrechts , die thematisch rastlos suchen zwischen Melancholie und Mystik, zwischen Emotion und Philosophie und getragen werden von eingängigen wie komplexen Songarrangements, die mang Melodie und Empfindung, mang Rauheit und Sehnsucht keinen Grenzen und Konventionen folgen und sich so eine immer neu zu entdeckende inhaltliche und emotionale Tiefe bewahren. Mit der EP “Langsyne Lithanies” erscheint Ende Oktober der erste Vorbote auf das langersehnte 8 Studioalbum der Band…

SALVATION AMP(GER) – Nach Jahren der musikalischen Abstinenz griff Christ-Ian 2010 wieder zur Gitarre und erstmals auch zum Mikrofon, nahm einige Demos auf und spürte, dass die Zeit gekommen war, zurück zu kehren. Seine Wurzeln hatte er nicht vergessen, so wurde mit Steve Leafs am Schlagzeug und Andreas Bracht am Bass salvation AMP gegründet. New Wave, Indie-Rock, klassischer Gitarrenrock mit dunklen Untertönen sind das Fundament der Band. Dies manifestierte sich
schließlich 2012 in der Veröffentlichung des ersten Albums „hidden faces“…

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.

More information about the exhibition in our Events section here. And you can buy the book here.
