Exhibition at Künstlerhaus Bethanien
Berlin.Status  marks the second survey of new tendencies and trends in Berlin’s art scene, undertaken by the curators Sven Drühl and Christoph Tannert.
Following up on Berlin.Status , which has focused on Berlin-based artists born between 1973-1980, the second volume Berlin.Status  now features artists born between 1978–1984. Being dedicated to the future—with works by more than 50 artists, the show permits a look ahead to the potentials of the youngest generation of Berlin artists.
Berlin.Status  witnesses a broad spectrum of interventionist thinking and image-manipulating approaches, including video art, painting, non-figurative objects and the usage of low-budget materials as a typical Berlin characteristic. Changes in the art world don’t come about where games are played with image-building bricks for the creative industries, but in those places where meaningful questions are raised. Berlin's current position as the artist's Eldorado on the one hand and as a tourist magnet facing the well-known problems of structural changes like rising rents and gentrification on the other, serves as a motor for the artistic practice shown in this exhibition.
