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.

The book is being published by the German publisher Braus.

Intervention in German by Andreas Rost (Co-Founder Tacheles, Photographer, Curator, Assistant Professor)

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.

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.



Rave Against The Machine // 10 Years Pokora

Pokora is a humble crew of friends who decided to bring un-humble sounds to the free party scene. They like to play it loud and fast, kicking from 180bpm and going way beyond… “Play fast or die!!!”.
For 10 years they have been involved in squat parties, teknivals – and sometimes also making it into clubs – all over Europe.
This year it’s their 10th birthday, so they decided to hit the road once again and join with their friends Kaometry in Berlin.

If Breakcore is dead, then Stazma the Junglechrist is the resurrection!
Hailing from the same French stock as Monster X, Rotator and the infamous Peace Off imprint, Julien Guillot has been smashing up raves all across Europe since his first release on Peace Off in 2008 and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Having taken the early breakcore ethos of genre mashing and amen splicing, Julien delivers his sound of rave, gabber, jungle and dub with a modern, tight production that seems synonymous with the French these days.
As well as making a name for himself with releases on Meganeural, Structural Damage and Peace Off, it is Stazma’s live show which displays his work best. A frenetic, yet finely tuned assault on the senses.
« It’s really very energetic, efficient and has all the elements to both kick out your sissy friends out of the club and make the rest party till late after dawn. Stormy, ravy breakcore. »

'WHAT'S WORNG?' A Prost Exhibition

ThomasvonwittichOn Saturday, August 17th, Urban Spree Galerie presents ‘WHAT’S WORNG ?’, a solo show by Berlin based street artivist Prost, which is at the same time conceived as a retrospective. The show includes a selection of older and iconic pieces as well as new artworks and collaborations with notorious graffiti writers.

Prost will also present his one-liners : portraits made of a single line, à main levée.

In Berlin, Prost is ubiquitous. His famous character, the Prostie, adorns many of the derelict walls of the city since years whereas his adbusting skills subvert the consumerist codes of our society. For Prost, advertising is the real violence. Commercial images invade the public space without permission and deserve to be twisted, diverted from their intentional purpose, with sheer provocation and an absolute  big laugh.

For Prost, art in the street must bear a message, and should not only be graphically nice but tells something about the state of our society. Prost is a whistleblower, a reminder that we should retain control over the public space. « Berlin schmeckt mir schon, aber Werbung stinkt ».

With over 500+ advertising billboards busted, Prost uses his wit to deliver messages, incite passers-by to choose new angles of thought, to think about the overconsumption of images and products, triggering a smile and a reaction against the totalitarianism of beauty as dictated by cosmetic and so called ‘fast moving consumer brands’, the rejection of an europeocentric approach, aesthatic canons and vitruvian proportions. However, with Prost, the humour and satire are always at the forefront of his work.

As he puts it: « I am a happy anarchist, (…) not an angry vandal. »

Seeing a Prostie in the street is a secret indication that something else is to be seen, a slight distortion of reality, however the spectator is free to see what he wants. Prost is just the question mark, he is offering questions, not serving answers.

Prost is a true voice of Berlin. Und Berlin spricht Wände.

Prost is a graphic situationist, and by using his art skills in the street to mock the ridicule of our « société du spectacle », he was poised to run into trouble. Last year, Prost experienced a lot of graffiti/vandalism issues with the police and justice. His troubles today are far from being over.

To make a long story short, it is probably the last time a Prost exhibition will be shown in Germany.

A Prost memorabilia shop will be set up in the galerie, with stickers, tote bags, tshirts, pins, DVDs, and a special hand-pulled limited edition screenprint specially produced for the show by Mother Drucker in the Urban Spree Ateliers.

You are all heartily welcome to the vernissage on Saturday, August 17th, with the presence of the artist.

From 19:00 till late with guest DJs invited by Prost playing in the garden.
