a.topos Venice for the second edition of THE CREATIVE ROOM, invited artists to dedicate their art to the theme "The Future of Art and the Art of the Future".  
 

The artists involved are:  Mário Afonso, Damiano Fasso, Lina Zylla, Sève Favre, Sarah Valente, Doris Schamp, Madalena Corrêa Mendes, Armin Amiriam, Lucrezia Costa, Oona Nelson, Constanza Camila Kramer Garfias, Jia-Rey Chang, Elena Xausa e Lorenzo Fonda, Nero Cosmos, Veronika Dräxler, Adélaïde Feriot, Chiara Tubia, Degann, David Michel Fayek, Ian Callender, Finn Theuws, Anna Maconi, Tanguy de Thuret, Lorenzo Peluffo e Fortuna De Nardo, Bernardo Tirabosco, Fadwa Rouhana, Daniela Di Lullo.  

 For almost two years, the majority of the world’s population was unable to attend any exhibition in a physical space. This new reality was unsurprisingly accompanied by an intense discussion around some of the hottest topics of the period in the art scene - is the virtual realm better than real-world exhibitions? Will digital replace experiencing a show live? Are we witnessing the establishment of a new normal, with the rise of new media hegemony in artistic practice? 
 
 Many extensive debates, strained relationships, repetitive arguments and, most of all, many, many, many online exhibitions after, we can take a deep breath and admit that - besides its undeniable contribution to the democratization of Art - virtual is definitely better than nothing. Hopefully, we can also foresee an art scene where both, digital and real, can, if not live happily ever after, at least find a way to peacefully (and in a mutually beneficial way) cohabit. After so much time apart, it’s nice to explore the possibility of encounters. Utopia, Dystopia, and Retrotopia  are two of them.

Utopia, Dystopia, Retrotopia


The artworks gathered here are an array of different interpretations about the future, converging into an enlarged horizon of expectation; an immersion in a compelling mixture between optimistic prognosis, cynical readings of the future and a nostalgic dive into a longing - either experienced or idealized - past.


Opening the narrative, the first show harvests works of art offering either utopic sceneries or gateways to a dystopian tomorrow. The audience is presented with an exhibition path that creates visual and sound spaces shifting between an invitation to sail together instead of adrift or attesting the burden of times to come. 


In the second exhibit, a world struck by an appalling pandemic and an art scene flooded with NTFs as backdrop brings past and future to walk sideways in what Zigmund Bauman defined as retrotopia. Either through form, content or both, the displayed artworks depict a strive to (re)establish a mityfied  - even if unfaithful - past. And in case nostalgically revisting a longing time does not chase uncertainty away, art can at least attempt righteous grief.


Exhibition curated by a.topos Venice, THE CREATIVE ROOM #2 has been organized in collaboration with Portrait Eyewear and Demoni Danzanti  creative residency.


Covid-19 precautions 
Please note that all visitors must wear masks inside the venue and that the super green pass is mandatory to access the show.

QUIETER THAN SILENCE group exhibition

curated by Venetia Initiatives 

March 3 - April 16 2022

Albert Camus (1913 - 1960) poses a crucial question: Is it possible for humans to act in an ethical and meaningful manner in a silent universe? According to him, the answer is yes. The experience and awareness of the absurd create moral values and also set up the limits of our actions. Camus separates the modern form of rebellion into two modes.


First, there is the metaphysical rebellion, "the movement by which man protests against his condition and the whole of creation." The other mode, the "historical rebellion" is the attempt to materialize the abstract spirit of metaphysical rebellion and change the world. In this attempt, the rebel must balance between the evil of the world and the intrinsic evil, which every revolt carries and not cause any unjustifiable suffering.  (Text by Venetia Initiatives)

Friends of the Pinakothek der Moderne PIN. Stuio visit in Munich 26th January 2022

The year 2022 has already brought exciting events:


On 26 January, I had the pleasure of welcoming the Friends of the Pinakothek der Moderne Munich to my studio. Opening PIN.YC's program as the first event of the year was a great honor for me. It was a fantastic experience to receive an official group of visitors to my nearly new studio, where I moved at the end of last year.



The evening was full of interesting questions about my textile practice. And it was a grand delight for me to demonstrate different textile craft techniques to my attentive guests. A big thank you to the PIN. team: Stephanie Rechenberg, Sophie Kirchner, and Franziska Le Meur for organizing this perfect studio visit. And many thanks to the many guests who enriched the evening with their discussions and vibrant exchange.

SHARING group exhibition

BBK Munich/ Galerie der KünstlerInnen

9th December 2021 - 15th January 2022

SHARING / BBK - Members exhibition 2021

On 9 December 2021, the traditional members' exhibition of the Berufsverband Bildender Künstler*innen München und Oberbayern e.V. (Professional Association of Visual Artists Munich and Upper Bavaria), will open under the title SHARING. The exhibition format has been held at the end of each year in the GALERIE DER KÜNSTLER*INNEN for almost 80 years.


The exhibition team Hilke Bode, Fumie Ogura, Dirk Neumann, and Youngjun Lee will curate the more than 200 expected, thematically highly diverse works of the 1060 members. The big challenge is to stage the artworks according to the spatial situation. At the same time, the authentic charm of this exhibition format lies in the diversity of the individual exhibits. A surprising "potpourri" all under the title SHARING.


The soft opening offers visitors the opportunity to take their time and look at the many exhibits. All works can be purchased to support the exhibiting artists, who have been particularly hard hit by the ongoing pandemic.

Constanza Camila Kramer Garfias artist portrait presented at a large screen, exhibition pictures by Venetia Kapernekas

”We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates… Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty.


At the heart of this philosophy is a fundamental cultural polarity. Unlike the Western conception of beauty -a stylized fantasy constructed by airbrushing reality into a narrow and illusory ideal of perfection the zenith of Japanese aesthetics is deeply rooted in the glorious imperfection of the present moment and its relationship to the realities of the past.” Text by Venetia Kapernekas

CHILEAN CONEXION FESTIVAL group exhibition

“Chilean Conexión” is an exhibition of Chilean artists living in Berlin that aim to disseminate and increase the visibility of the work being developed by many migrating national artists in the German capital, with hopes to facilitate a meeting and connection between them and also within the local community.


Since the Berlin Wall fell down, many Chilean artists and musicians have been relocating to the German capital, seduced by an effervescent artistic and musical scene, and for social-cultural relations that entice them to this particular city. These migrant artists often go unnoticed due to both their youth and also the large number of artists and musicians who arrive each year in the city, competing for the same workspaces and exhibitions.

Installationview "Misiones - Espero que los condores vengan a comerme", 2021, 130 x 130 x 140 cm, Wood & Jacquardweaves, exhibition pictures by Constanza Camila Kramer Garfias

A group of them was invited for the first time in 2018 to exhibit part of the works they have been developing here, in a small collective exhibition. About 30 artists of different diciplines were presented in a single night, being received with a massive attendance of the Chilean community and also the local public.


In this 4th edition, the objective is to expand and consolidate the exhibition, with more works and categories on display, which will include: the visual arts, video art, installations, acoustic projects and performances, in addition to several workshops, several of them supporting foreign artists.

AMBACTIA MEMORIA group exhibition

SomoS Arts / Berlin

7th September - 18th September 2021

Ambactia Memoria at Somos Arts Berlin

Exhibition pictures by SOMOS Arts Berlin

Ambactia* Memoria is a group exhibition to be presented at SomoS Art House Berlin between September 7-18th 2021. Ambactia Memoria offers artists, critics, and activists an open framework to articulate non-normative artistic positions and peripheral perspectives regarding tradition, memory, and identities in relation to the Hispanic. By exploring the intersection between feminism, transculturalism and (post) migrant approaches on the representations, practices and diverse forms of identity in contemporary society, works selected deconstruct the idea of Hispanicness and collectively imagine its future transformation. 


"Constanza Camila Kramer Garfias (HYPERISM) intensively examines her roots and the development of textile projects from postcolonialism, with a flag reappropriated by the Mapuche people since their colonization. This reappropriation of derogatory or traditionally questionable symbols (as the term queer by the LGBTIQ+ community was at the time) is installed in the interstices of irony as a political device for social activation, as evidenced by the actions of the Homo Velamine collective." 


Curated by Vanesa Peña Alarcón (ES), the exhibition takes as a starting point an institutional critique of the global stereotypical representation of the Hispanic by international diplomatic organizations and cultural institutes. In Peña’s view, this representation of the Hispanic or the concept of Hispanicness, is a form of patronization of people’s history, collective memory, and subjectivities, a one-sided perspective that doesn’t allow for a genuine inclusion of transculturalism.
