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.

Performance: Marva+Maschin-Klan

Marva+Maschin-Klan (mmk) is a strange objects, selfmade /modified instruments, german experimental noise and electro act founded by Marva H. Kübler in 1988. After beeing vocalist and bassplayer in a few punk / funk /wave bands and a performance artist at several festivals and galleries he started a solo-project with music, video art and strange stage objects. Influenced by the early illegal underground techno and hardcore clubs in Berlin at the time MarvaMK developed during the 90s a simplistic « krautrock-elektro » style and played live at some of the most influential music clubs like the SO36 and Tacheles, EIMER and Tresor Berlin. His videos and « weird » stage effects are used in his own shows but they have also been used in several movies and also by other artists and musicians like Rammstein, Bushido and Yvonne Catterfeld. They used MarvaMks work for their videos and on stage. The MMK also produced video DVDs and various CDs and performed with the band Elektronauten in the Feature Film Goodbye Lenin.

« 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.

Felix Gephart: Book Release and Art Show

interrogation

Urban Spree Galerie proudly presents the Berlin release of the first monograph about Felix Gephart as well as a selection of his large-sized artworks.

Felix Gephart (b.1986 in Bochum, West Germany), started graffiti quite early, and later formally studied art in Münster, Dortmund and at the New York School of Visual Arts.

His body of work is hard to categorize: inspired by the ‘Neue Sachlichkeit’ as well as the underground comics world, he is a figurative artist, a satirical & newspaper illustrator, and graffiti writer, whose work is often dark with some steampunk elements (à la Kevin O’Neill).

The monograph released by Kettler Verlag, presents all the facets of the artist: seemingly literary and old master-like drawings face murals, landscape representations, portraits and surrealist mythological creatures.

Large-sized illustrations and numerous detail photographs offer an insight into the powerful, thematically, stylistically and technically diversified oeuvre.

Vernissage: Friday November 22nd from 19:00. 
Book signings in the presence of the artist.

Exhibition until Sunday, November 24th. 12:00-20:00

Order Felix Gephart’s monograph ‘Auf Linie gebracht’ here.
