Atopia vs Identity. The virtue of strangeness.
A lecture by Dr. Alexander Wiehart

Strong social identities are often praised and striven for. They are supposed to assure orientation, acceptance, mutual understanding and security, in short: a community that feels like home. On the other hand, social sciences have been recognising identities as the result of social pressure and even violence. Because of this origin, each strong identity itself tend to become violent not only against its surroundings but also against the persons who share this identity. How can this mechanism be avoided? Maybe Socratic “atopia”, a genuinely philosophical kind of self-imposed strangeness, can help …

U-Bahn – 1st concert in Berlin
Bora Yediel – Bağlama / Mehmet Taşkın – Darbuka / Melih Sarıgöl – Electronics
U-Bahn is a trio based in Berlin founded by three new comers to Berlin from Istanbul. Its sound can be described as an improvisation of live loops of Anatolian melodic patterns accompanied by powerful Anatolian rhythms with noisy electronics and synthesizer. Everything develops and happens during the performance.

No (B)order, BERLIN





We'll be at
KUNSTPUNKT BERLIN
on May 5th.







Fr., 4.5.2018, 8 p.m.
Panel Discussion: „His TV“ // Sis Kollektiv // Apartment Project
„If you stucked on the runway?”
with Selda Asal, Julia Lazarus, Mehtap Baydu, Ezgi Kilicaslan, Özlem Sariyildiz
Moderator: Erden Kosova (art critic from Istanbul)



NO (B)ORDERS is to be understood as a universal political outcry coming directly out of the project space art scene. It stands for an open worldview, the artistic recapturing of urban space, as well as the preservation of autonomy and diversity for project spaces and initiatives. Four internationally active project spaces and initiatives were selected through an open call for this exhibition, based on artworks that are clearly positioned against discrimination and repression, instead displaying ways forward toward communication and freedom. The group exhibition allows not only for an encounter with different forms of reflection and expression, but also offers a space for spontaneous art actions and further discussion.
