FUNCTION.ANOMY, Intermission Collective exhibition at Rathaus-Galerie Reinickendorf – 28th March to 16th May 2019. www.intermissioncollective.com
A town hall, or Rathaus, is one of the most conspicuous places where the state and its citizens interact. Not only is it a bureaucratic hub where endless paperwork is produced, but also a political space where an elected council rules on issues related to the local community. In this environment, citizens are guided by a set of predefined pathways that lead to institutional spaces and activities. Making use of a vast variety of approaches and languages, Intermission artists present their perspectives about the resilient anomic element interfering in every functional context. They explore possible patterns of meaning at the borders between socio-cultural structures and the metaphorical space of the anomy.
Artists: Agata Wieczorek, Angela Dwyer, Anne Marie Sampaio, Antti Pussinen, Assaf Hinden, Barbara Schober, Barbara Sanchez Barroso, Claudia Olendrowicz, Claudia Vitari, Daniela Delgado Viteri, Diana Pacelli, Doris Marten, FELL, Francesco Petruccelli, Ilka Raupach, Jennifer Öllerich, Jonas Büßecker, Jürgen Kellig, Katharina Bévand, Marc Oosting, Martin Sieron, Ori Jauch, Sarah Wohler, Swen Erik Scheuerling, Teresa Mayr, Thilo Droste, Yeongbin Lee.

GRABENBLICKE @Bärenzwinger Berlin 12.07 – 19.08.2018, comissioned by Sebastian Häger & Julia Heunemann, Artists: Alex Lebus, Katharina Bévand, Marten Schech, Lawrence Power.
Reflecting the spacial infrastructure in and around the Bärenzwinger, the exhibition ›Grabenblicke‹ explores site-specific dispositives of gaze and their effects on the relationships between identity and alterity. The view into the outdoor enclosures must clear a fence, a hedge, a wall, metal shark-tooth spikes, trenches and a wooden barrier. Behind these confining architectural elements the view eventually encounters itself: by means of modified mirrors, the expansive installation by ALEX LEBUS disrupts the architectural assignment of subject and object relations and unsettles the viewers’ position. In the opposite enclosure the gaze falls upon a house, whose context, function and origin remains unclear, and that seems strangely out of place. With his work, MARTEN SCHECH transforms the artificial habitat once set up for the bears, including the boulders placed around the site, into both a stage and building material. The interior of the Bärenzwinger was long kept out of public view.In the anteroom, LAWRENCE POWER unlocks the functional infrastructures already partly obsolete, lending pictorial expression. By duplicating and extending the present elements, he interprets the space itself as a canvas.Via auditory means, KATHARINA BÉVAND’s sound installation ultimately surveys the architecture of the darkened Zwinger space and the cavities located opposite. Its sounds reflect from walls, ceilings and security grates – penetrating the segregating architectures at the same time.
THE ROOM OF EYES @Sudhaus, Kindl Brewery, Berlin – 5th July, doors: 8 pm. The room of eyes is a new performance platform questioning how we listen. When is music performance art and when is performance art music? We are interested in liveness, the performer and questioning the music industry as well as the consumption of music during this hyperactive epoch we find ourselves in. How do we slow down, excite, seduce and observe the observer? What is the role of the listener and what do we owe to the performer? What is the role of the musician as artist and performer today? How do we create immersive total sound? Do we listen through our eyes our ears or our senses? The Room of Eyes will create a monthly public ritual to transform its audience in the sonic Cathedral that is König Otto. Both at once a sacred and profane space you are invited to hear new narratives told through sounds and visions. Performers: Katharina Bevand / Lisa Stewart / Sener and the Oracle / Things Disappear
METAMORPHOSAIC, PAF (Performing Arts Festival Berlin) at Schiller Bibliothek in Berlin-Wedding 8th of June, 5 pm: Metamorphosaic is a dance and sound installation by metacorpus: Katharina Bévand & Azzie McCutcheon.
