Tanz im August / La Veronal
29/08–19:00H

A cave as an allegory of hell: in their new work, ‘Voronia’, La Veronal, the Barcelona based company led by Marcos Morau, go in search of the concept of evil. Their investigation takes them into the bowels of the earth, into the deepest cavern in the world, the Krubera-Voronia cave in the Georgian Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia. The cave is portrayed as a Dantean hell, a state of eternal descent. The company invokes the philosophies of St. Augustine by stating that, in the same way that darkness is the absence of light, evil is the absence of good – a matter of categorization only of interest to humans. According to La Veronal, humanity created God to secure the boundaries of morality; God serves as the keeper of goodness and a moral refuge for humankind. But in the hands of God’s stewards, religion has gone to seed. Weiterlesen

In Zeiten, in denen Begrifflichkeiten wie "kulturelle Identität" wieder an Bedeutung gewinnen und die hiermit verbundenen Fragen häufig im Rahmen von Kollektiven verhandelt werden, versteht Aladag den Begriff viel eher im globalen Kontext und bricht ihn im gleichen Schritt mit Humor und Hintersinn so wieder auf das einzelne Individuum herunter.

The Japanese artist Koki Tanaka references the history of “art activism” And views his work as a gentle sustainable approach to this movement. His “Artist of the Year” exhibition, “A Vulnerable Narrator,” at the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin is a laboratory of sorts, one that ties together a decade's worth of projects, ideas, and documents. It traces Tanaka's path from early experiments with mass-produced goods and materials, to his collaborative actions and performances. Above all, Tanaka is interested in the question of how sensitive and open we are to the everyday objects that surround us, and how we might develop new relationships to them. Weiterlesen

Common Ground
12/12–19:30H

Theatre critics have announced that the Maxim Gorki Theater in Berlin which is under the direction of Shermin Langhoff and Jens Hillje has been named the theatre of the year. We are looking forward to the joint visit to the performance of "Common Ground". Yael Ronen researched his actors and produced biographies for them. Many of them were children in the 90s during the war in Yugoslavia - they were children of both perpetrators and victims. Subsequently, she decided to go to Yugoslavia with them to see various war scenes - the "common ground". Their performance was completely improvised. It never pointed the finger or remained conventional and it is performed without fear of great emotion, pain or laughter. Following the presentation, we have the opportunity to talk with the actors and the dramaturge of the play moderated by Barbara Burckhardt, Editor-in Theater heute and CAA expert for contemporary theatre.

Franziska Wildt

CAA Berlin will support Franziska Wildt with a monthly stipend of 900 € for the realization of her video installation exploring sorrow in connection with the antique myth of Antigone. Beatrice von Bismarck, CAA’s jury chairmen about the decision: “Franziska Wildt convinced the jury because of her stringent concept and an visually independent working method, combining societal and artistic interests in her work, much like the guiding idea of CAA. In her installations, Wildt is combining video, photography, performance, objects and collage from which she emulates spaces of experiences which are informative and aesthetic at the same time. In her upcoming project, the artist will engage into the theme of public grief, taking Antigone as a historical and contemporary starting point to explore tragedy. The intertwined sections of history on the one hand and the shift between artistic and socio-political on the other are part of her complex artistic approach and the reason fort he jury’s decision for the Berlin based artist.“ Weiterlesen
